These tiny figures were seen in the gift shop at Winterthur Estate Museum. They appear ready to burst into song, and they are all dressed up for their evening of singing Christmas carols door to door! The grandmother wears her best cameo and lace. The little girl has long wisps of hair, maybe in braids. Little brother is so serious, while Dad seems well prepared to spread some Christmas cheer, or at least to ward off the cold night air!

Here We Come A-Wassailing (or Here We Come A-Caroling) is a Christmas carol and New Years song. It refers to ‘wassailing’, or singing carols door to door. An old English wassail song is a song to wish good health. (Wikipedia)
Here we come a’wassailing’
Among the leaves so green,
Here we come a wand’ring,
So fair to be seen.
Love and joy come to you,
And to your wassail too,
And God bless you and
send you a happy New Year,
And God send you a happy New Year.
