When I was a kid myself, I knew that my neighbors would go out every night for the entire month of December to go caroling. I bet it was fun to just be with friends and knock at neighbors’ houses to sing out-of-tune carols to music created by cans, stones, and bottle caps. And the fact that you get to earn some money on the side makes it all the more fun. weeeee
But sadly, my parents did not allow me. They felt that they would put me at risk to go on caroling because it is already nighttime and well, there are dogs roaming the neighborhood and I can’t really run fast like my friends. I just thought that I missed an opportunity to make a fun childhood memory.
As for Dindin, I never really thought about it anymore until her school organized caroling for her and the kids. And they are going to do it for three days! Weeeee I love the idea! Yesterday, they went to three different offices for this. And she said she had fun because they got gifts from those who hosted the caroling. 😀 They was no cool and proper blending and they garbled the words of the Christmas carols, but wearing red shirts and Santa hats, the experience was worth it for the kids. They brought so much cheer to the people because they themselves were very happy with what they were doing. 😀
Now, I am thinking of organizing caroling stints with friends’ kids just so she can experience it all over again and earn some money, too. 😀 That will give her another opportunity to learn–handling money that she earned.
