holiday, mithras

Interesting (possibly only to me)

In celebration of the festive season, my office building has had a
rotating cast of musicians in the lobby for the past couple of weeks,
singing or playing carols. This morning it was the quartet dressed up as
Victorian carollers. As I came in, they were starting "Here We Come
a-Wassailing"... but they sang it as "Here we come a-carolling". Which
was... odd.

Is this a common change? I'd never heard it before, but then it's not
one of the most common carols you here around here.
