The joy of singing Christmas Carols!

Christmas Carols Tradition

 

As the festive season arrives, so do our favourite Christmas traditions. Such as putting up the Christmas tree, wrapping presents, baking with the family and decorate gingerbread houses. However, one of our favourite Christmas tradition is the joyful carols, these old tradition has been passed down from generation to generation for centuries.

Firstly, these lovely carols were sung as a celebration of Christ’s birth. Today they are often heard at churches or around the neighbourhood, noting that many choirs sing purely for charity.

Carol by carol…

“Oh Holy Night”…

The word ‘carol’ means dance or song of praise and joy. However they could be sung on every occasion, the Christmas Carols seem to have been the only tradition that has really survived. Besides, carolling at your doorstep it is believed to have been originated when the carolers weren’t allowed to sing in the church, so they would march door to door, fueled by the festive spirit on the Holy Night.

 

 

 

“Joy to the World”

Christmas Carols have been bringing joy to our world from a really long time. Our children learn the songs at school bring them home and sooner rather than later we are all happily singing Christmas Carols all together.

At Let’s Go Punting, we have hosted for the past two years, a special ‘Christmas Carols on the River‘ event. Moreover, this event was a partnership with the Traditional Punting Company and the Choir from St John the Evangelist. However, sadly this annual charity event won’t happen this year due to the current pandemic circumstances.

 

The whole concept of this charity event of Christmas Carols on the River Cam is that for an hourly slot, where all the sales will be donated to the assigned charity. On 2018 the donation reverted to Christian Aid, while the money raised on the year after was donated to East Anglia’s Children’s Hospice. All tickets could be booked to punt along two boats where the choir will be singing all along the journey. Fingers crossed we will be able to bring this event back on the years to come.

 

 

 

“Silent Night”

Don’t let your Christmas be filled with Silent Nights, let there be joy, light and festive songs all around. We want to wish you a very Merry Christmas!!
