Christmas carols

Carolling isn’t a big deal in Australia but we certainly learn carols at school and enjoy Carols by Candlelight in various parks. And there is something special about being together, singing fun songs and listening to a combined voice.

There are traditional carols, fun (children’s) carols and even local variants of carols (such as an Aussie 12 days of Christmas). Some evoke an emotional feel while others bring a smile (like Santa kissing Mummy last night).

So what is your favourite Christmas carol? If that questions is too hard – what is your favourite type of carol?

Where do you like to sing Christmas carols?

Your favourite Santa gift

What is the best and/or most memorable gift Santa ever left for you?

WHat is in the gifts held by Santa?

Did your favourite gift from Santa come in a box like these presents?

Do you remember why that thing was so special and stands out from everything else? It isn’t always the biggest or flashiest thing that stays in our memories – and now is the time to acknowledge how Santa got it right for you!

Favourite Christmas songs

What are your favourite Christmas songs (not carols)? How often do you listen to them (by choice rather than when walking through a shopping centre!)?

Some of the songs I can think of are:

6 White Boomers by Rolf Harris

I’m dreaming of a White Christmas

Do they know it’s Christmas time at all?

I saw Mummy kissing Santa Claus

12 days of Christmas

Rudolph the Red Nose Reindeer (so well known I think it is almost counted in amongst the carols, but I don’t think it really fits there)
