Christmas Carolling with American friends

This is an unusual, fun part of American culture that is almost extinct!

Maybe 40-50 years ago, many Americans would get together during the month of December and walk through their neighborhoods at night, stopping at the homes of friends and singing Christmas songs (called "carols"). Since singing songs together is a lot of fun, about 40 Americans and students from our American culture program, ChatRoomLIVE, practiced these old songs, and then Christmas carolled at some homes Wheaton in December. Then we finished with a great meal in the last home!
