Here we go a wassailing

I have very fond memories of caroling as a child. We had these ancient hand typed cheat sheets that were packaged with our Christmas decorations. They would come out every year for general singing, but were also used as we walked around with our family and friends going door to door holding candles.

Somehow in my ‘haste’ to return to a normal working week after my training a few weeks ago, I forgot one of the best things I brought back.
