MALACCA: Christmas carolling has always been a tradition of the Ayer Salak village.

This year, youths in St Mary Church, organised a carolling group to visit the 50 Christian family homes in the village.

Merry time: Chung Chee Kian and family joining Santa Claus and carollers in celebration at the Ayer Salak village.
The church youth deputy president Martha Chua Swee Chin said it was a time for interaction and sharing in the spirit of Christmas.

She said the 25-member group, aged between 10 and 35, had practised singing for one week before their carolling rounds.

“We have to visit the houses on our motorcycles as the roads are narrow,” she said.

Sensible: Travelling by motorcycle is the practical way.
The carolling group, gathered at Chua’s house before starting their tour at 7.30pm, singing carols and hymns until midnight.

“We would sing four songs in either Chinese or English at the request of each household; our two Santa Clauses would also dance for them.

“The family would normally give us a donation which we channel to the church’s youth association.”
