carol singing

пение рождественских гимнов. В США во время Рождества их исполняют группы людей как в помещениях, так и на улицах и площадях, в торговых центрах и зданиях вокзалов, во всех общественных местах. Обычно при этом идёт сбор денег на благотворительные цели. Иногда дети ходят от дома к дому, исполняя рождественские гимны и собирая деньги; их часто приглашают в дом и угощают какао с пирожными
