Picture of the Day: Christmas Carols

Students from Wah Yan College, Kowloon singing carols
On the weekend I was invited to the Hong Kong Country Club for lunch followed by an afternoon session of Christmas carols.

I've never been to a designated caroling session so it was interesting to see an all-boys' school choir from Wah Yan College, Kowloon performing.

Accompanied by a fellow student on the piano, the students sang many popular carols like Silent Night, Jingle Bells and Hark the Herald Angels Sing and we were encouraged to sing along with them.

Back home I wouldn't think a carol sing along was strange, but it felt a bit stiff probably because it was held in an upper crust club with taitais in fur shawls, designer bags and coiffed hair, while some of their husbands sang their hearts out. Perhaps it reminded them of their school days in Hong Kong or in the UK.
