Caroling last night was delightful

Each year one of our neighbours on Bowen Island hosts a caroling party. About 30 people of all ages arrive, and a little after 5:30 PM we set out to tour some of the local houses. Homemade song books were provided. This year many of is showed up with headlights to make it easy to read the words and music. Others carried lanterns. Some of the people we visit knew we would arrive, and after our two carols plus singing “We wish you a Merry Christmas,” instead of figgie pudding, we were served hot mulled wine and cookies. As we proceeded, folks would join us and the throng became larger.

The temperature was above freezing, and the Moon with Mars as a very nearby companion, emerged to light our way. Just about the time when folks were tired of walking, and feeling a bit cold, we returned to the host’s where there was a huge pot-luck dinner, and lots more music.
