Minnie Frisby in Worms Ash, Bromsgrove - December, late 19th Century

from Memories: Minnie Frisby, pages II:10:

Yes, we had our celebrations in those days, and what times at Christmas what with the decorations and the Holly and  Mistletoe, and the Christmas parties; always plenty of good stuff—sometimes makes my mouth water; and always seemed to be plenty of singing, sometimes we would form a party and go Carol singing to our friends, on New Years Eve perhaps go to a Night Watch Service.
