I cant stand Carol Singers and never give them any money.


Whatever happened to the traditional Charles Dickens' image?

Images of a proper gathering of good children holding a candle lantern singing proper Carols.
"Once in Royal Davids City"
"Oh Little Town of Bethlehem"
"We Three Kings"...

Do Children not know the words to the above songs?

The best they can do these days is a drunken sounding "Jingle Bells" and "Wish you a Merry Christmas", without any heart or meaning. I also question their motivations.

I would like to equate it with the Halloween "Trick-or-Treat"ers

Fortunately, the children who knock on our door at Halloween are very young and cute and well behaved. They come accompanied with an parent, and they are totally harmless.

I guess we are lucky that we never get and trouble-makers or older-age mischiefs at Halloween. But a drunk-sounding "hoodie" mumbling "Wish you a merry Christmas" with no heart? No thanks.

I ignore Carol singers and also don't answer the door at Halloween.

One can say that her husband shouldn't leave his cycle in the front garden without a padlock.

On the other hand you could say you shouldn’t need to. And would not expect carol singers to be un Christian?

I sometimes answer the door, let them sing, and then say, "Thanks" close the door and go back to what i was previously doing.

Carol singers, haven't had those round since the incident of Christmas 1998, jesus that was gruesome, my 2 dogs lept over the dog guard, barking and yelping, before I knew what had happened the Gordon Setter was dry humping the leg of the Soprano and the Pointer was licking the face off her son!
