Christmas Eve Caroling Thread [Weirddave]

Every year we have people over for Christmas Eve. Every year I think how much fun it would be to go caroling like we did when I was a kid. Every year my suggestion is met with a giant "meh" from everyone I know IRL.

Scrooge 'em. Bunch of killjoys, no appreciation for the classics.

So this year I'm going to have my caroling party, I'll just do it here. Everybody bundle up. Cochran, you got that flask stashed? Good, I'm going to need a nip later. Get the kids together, watch the traffic, let's cross the street and start at the Johnson's house.

Alright. Good job, they liked it. I don't know the next folks down, so lets keep it simple.

Huh. They didn't come out, just peeked at us through the window. No wonder I don't know them. Next up is Al and Katie. She teaches Sunday School, so everyone turn to page 7, lets be a bit less secular this time.

Nice job! That was pretty cool of them to give us cookies. Everybody got one? Excellent. Everybody cross back over and we'll hit the Fulbrush house next. Down there, with the inflated Santa on the lawn.

Cochran, give me a nip of that brandy, would you? You drank it all? Jeez, I never should have given it to you. *Sigh* No matter. How are the kids holding up? They're not too cold? No? OK, couple of more houses and we'll call it a night. Santa should be coming by on the fire truck soon anyway, and then we have Mass.

I dunno where to go next. The corner house? I think they're Jewish. Let's sing anyway. Page 15. On three. One, two three....

Well, if they are Jewish, they sure enjoyed the song anyway. I wanna sing for the Tracers and the Abbots, then we'll call it a night. Everybody find song 5, I know they like this one, that's why I made sure to include it in the song packet.

Man! Those Glor-ooor-ooor--ooooor-oooor-orrr-ias really wear you out. Last house folks! Soon as we get back home they'll be cider and cake. Lets wrap this up with my favorite carol. Song 1. Really go for it, I love this one. It's what the night's all about.

Alright! Look, it's starting to snow. I've got cider, beer and wine at home for the adults, and punch and hot chocolate for the kids. Thanks for coming out, I know this is old fashioned, but come on, admit it, it was a lot of fun, wasn't it? One final thing for the Morons...

God bless and keep all of you tonight, and have a merry and joyous Christmas!
