what do you do when christmas carolers come to the door?

what do you do when Christmas carolers come to the door? and you're busy and don't want to listen? How do you politely shoo them away? Sally was busy cooking dinner and a bunch of girls came to the door singing Christmas carols. I was expecting a UPS package so I went to check it only to be greeted by a bunch of lousy sounding prepubescent girls and their older sister escort. I had to endure 5 minutes of bad singing while my food was unattended but I didn't want to be rude and tell them to go away

at the end I lied through my teeth, told them they were good, and even gave a faint golf clap.

Re: what do you do when christmas carolers come to the door?

I either...

1. Lie and tell them I'm Muslim and this is not a good time.
2. Tell them to shut up and leave.
3. Shut the door in their face.

It's really quite fun.

It's never happened to me. Doesn't really happen in the UK, I think.

Sally, I think you are supposed to feed them holiday cookies and candy. Sort of like Halloween.

Re: what do you do when christmas carolers come to the door?

ask each one in turn to marry you and tell them that you will love them and hug them and dress them up like ducks nd say anything else insane that comes to mind as long as you say that you will marry them. they will be gone in no time. particularly if you talk about how the last person you asked to marry you said no and found themselves dying in many interesting ways.

Thankfully this doesn't happen in Australia.

Sally, answer the door naked - regardless of what you look like this should get rid of them.

Re: what do you do when christmas carolers come to the door?

The whole ordeal was really rather awkward. They sounded like crap and While they were singing I had to do my best to look interested (and not burst into laughter) while they sang 3 verses from O Come All Ye Faithful badly. It's fine at the mall or some other public place but isn't coming to my door crossing the line? Next time I release the hounds

Re: what do you do when christmas carolers come to the door?

I look out from the upstairs window, where they can't see me. See who it is. If it's carolers, then I don't open the door
