♪♫ Christmas greetings gone wrong

By Melissa Bell

Caroling is the original flash mob, when strangers show up on your front stoop and sing a litany of songs for your home audience. It's a great holiday tradition of a neighborhood-building, spirit-raising sort. Except for when it's set to heavy metal.

Or take this video (it has some mildly inappropriate language so go find it over here). The carolers took to the streets at 1:30 a.m. People really, really don't like being woken up to "Little Drummer Boy." What is a Christmas miracle is how the police deal with the situation.

I have to go wrap presents, so it's a half day for this blog. Merry Christmas Eve Eve!
