Caroling was an oral tradition used to communicate and it was not necessarily limited to this season. Later, travelers went door to door to give greetings of the festivities. Due to the cold climate, the home dwellers offered them spiced hot beverages. The singing and dancing eventually evolved from this. Caroling around the city with family and friends is one of the best feelings during the holidays. Enjoying the snowy weather, the hot chocolate, singing, and making merry are a few things that keep the Christmas spirit alive.
Wine and Dine
Wine is not just to keep the cold in check but also to keep the jolly mood in check. A glass of lightly warmed, spiced wine can surely turn things into a carnival. There is always an option to come up with homemade wines or even family recipes of wines. It adds a personal touch and you can customize your tonic.
