Introducing “Blog Caroling”

I was introduced to a new term a couple of days ago, and that is “Blog Caroling”.

If you’re like me and hadn’t heard it before, it is where you blog about your fav Christmas carols, an apparently well-known geneablogger, footnoteMaven (aka fM) has made an annual tradition of it and welcomes everyone to join in.

As part of her intro to it footnoteMaven writes …

From the comfort of my blog, with Hot Toddy in hand, my flannel jammies and furry slippers on, I will blog my favorite Christmas Carol on Friday, December 22, on this blog and Facebook. So my fellow GeneaBloggers, I challenge each of you to blog or post to Facebook your favorite Christmas Carol – Blog Caroling. Blog Caroling is posting the lyrics, youtube video, etc. of your favorite Christmas carol on your blog.

So Blog Carol by Friday 22 December (US time), which of course is Saturday 23 December (Australian time), and post a note in the comments on her original post.

So Blog Caroling … I do love Christmas carols. Though I’m not one to put them on about 6 weeks before Christmas. About 1-2 weeks before is enough.  Fortunately I don’t work in a shopping centre where they do that, as seriously I would be “so over” carols that you just don’t want to hear them anymore.

Anyway I just wanted to share my favourite Christmas carol with you. It is performed by a capella group Pentatonix and I think they do a simply amazing version of “Little Drummer Boy”.


But another seriously awesome one is the “Angels We Have Heard on High” by The Piano Guys.

I hope you enjoy my carols. Are you into Christmas carols? Do you have a fav?

    Pentatonix – love them! You selected one of my favorite Christmas songs.

  2. Little Drummer Boy is my all time favorite, too, although I love most of the traditional carols. I hadn’t heard Pentatonix version – they did a great job. The Piano Guys were kind of mesmerizing – I hadn’t heard of them before.

    Pentatonix is amazing — those five singers pack a punch with just their voices and this carol they sang was beautiful. And The Piano Guys — I thought this version was amazing. Who knew a piano could be played so many ways! Thanks for sharing two of my favorite caols.
