Then As Now, Carols
Were Holiday Tradition
Bac k in the* 1 S90's. every
well-furnished home luid a
piano and one of the favor
ite pastimes was to gather
around the family piano to
sing the popular tunes of
the day. At Christmas
time. the joyous singing of
Christmas carols was an
important part of the hol
iday scene, adding to the
festive mood of everyone
from Papa down to little
sister.
Todays fashions have
changed significantly and
the color TV set may now
occupy the place of honor
in most \merican homes
hut you'll still find Christ
mas carols a well-loved tra
dition in family observanc
es of the Yuletide season.
The sounds of favorite
carols are more apt to em
anate from a stereo set
than from a player piano
but they're the same songs
that young ladies and their
beaux sang at the turn of
the century, with a few
modern additions. How
ever, the traditional singing
of carols has not complete
ly died out here ? many
church groups make a prac
tice of caroling in local
hospitals and institutions,
and some carolers still go
from home to home in true
holiday fashion.
Many churches feature
an evening of beloved
Christmas music during
the holiday season, and of
course TV and radio sta
tions offer many programs
of traditional and new
carols.
Folks from the Nineties
might be ama/cd at the
Christinas customs of today.
Taking the opportunity
to wish our customers a
happy, healthy Christmas
