Christmas Around the World – Christmas Caroling

As you look at Christmas around the world, you may find Germany’s Klopfelnachte

What is that, you may wonder???

Christmas Around the World – Christmas CarolingKlopfelnachte is literally “Knocking Day“.  Each Thursday during Advent is celebrated throughout German communities by youngsters visiting homes and singing carols, and offering gifts of fruit and candies.  You might see it as the opposite of “Trick or Treat”.

This is a wonderful tradition to be enjoyed in your covenantal communities.

Christmas caroling is also a tradition in England.  Groups of carolers, called “waits” make the rounds on Christmas Eve, singing before doorways & under windows.  The carolers are called “waits” because they were waiting fro the angels of Christmas.

If you haven’t gone Christmas caroling with your kids, do it now.

I still have fond memories of our home church going Christmas caroling in Idaho. We sang for the neighbors and ended back at our leader’s home.  Hot chocolate was the main course because it was a cold, cold evening.
