"On Christmas Eve, New Year’s Eve and the Epiphany Eve, children go out carol singing, knocking on door-to-door shouting “shall we sing” and household owners respond with “yes you shall”.

As a reward, children are offered money, sweet Christmas cakes, treats and candy which are placed into their boats." - Panagiota Andreadakis 'The ABC of the Twelve Days of Christmas' book.
