I was wondering if anyone out there had any information on the origin of
Christams caroling.  I guessed that it was probably out of period, seeing
as how most carols come from around the 18th and 19th centuries.  However,
I have heard of medieval celebrations and festivities that might have been
an early forerunner.  Are these things totally unconnected or does
caroling have its roots in medieval europe?
