  14. Loved carolling in the 50s i was in a church choir and did the rounds of the local churches but 3 of us would then go round the estate and yes we had to sing carols all the way through we were taken into the front rooms to sing it was great what with that and christmas tips on my paper rounds for that week i earned more than my Dad. Now the only thing i hear is we wish you a merry christmas which gets them nothing.
