Russian folk carols - short, cool songs for Christmas

In order to keep the traditions and collect a bag full of very tasty presents for Christmas, you will have to carefully prepare for the holiday and memorize short, funny and funny texts of Russian folk carols. The brighter and more original it will be possible to perform these perky songs, the more candies, gingerbread, fruit and coins will be presented to grapemen by grateful listeners. But before you start the presentation, do not forget to ask the owners of the house for permission to speak to them with short laudatory verses and cheerful, daring carols. Of course, no one will deny this, but, according to the ancient ritual, the question must be asked.


If caroling is done by senior schoolchildren, students or young people of 22-30 years old, it makes sense to pre-select suitable carols and rehearse them several times so that all participants remember the words of the text and the sequence of verses.Only a clear, well-coordinated and beautiful number will give the owners the desire to generously give koliadnikov presents and delicious, and the company of adults who forget the text of carols and embarrassed their actions, will look ridiculous and will prompt the idea to slam the door as soon as possible so as not to spoil your joyful and pleasant mood .


Koljadaem, koljadaem
We wander from family to family
We will tell you poems,
Give us pies

Well, it would be better coins
We will buy the candy ourselves,
And a handful of nuts,
And take the wine thimble!


Coleda - molode,
White beard,
Nose - a bowl,
Head - a bast basket
Hands - sabels,
Feet - rake,
Come on New Year's Eve,
To magnify honest people!


You master, do not torment
Give it as soon as possible!
And as the current frost
Do not order to stand for a long time
He orders us to serve soon:
Either from the oven pies,
Or money penny,
Or soup pot!
God bless you
Full yard of the bellies!
And in the stable of horses,
In the calf barn,
In the cabin guys
And in the backs of kittens!

Kalyada came
Christmas Eve
Who will give the cake
That is full of cattle,
Ovin with oats
A stallion with a tail!
Who will not give the cake, Tom chicken leg,
Pest, yes shovel,
Humpback cow.


Kolyada, kolyada,
We open all the houses
All windows, trunks,
We give sweets and pies,
So that it will be good for you
Say thank heaven,
God will give health to all of us
After all, he is ready for this!

You can learn Russian children's carols not only at home, but also at school and in kindergarten. To memorize texts quickly and easily, they are better to rehearse to the music. The number of such works is more than simple and it can be mastered by any adult person who is at least familiar with the musical certificate. It will be much easier for babies to perceive the words and rhythm of children's carols, backed up by a simple, fervent melody.

If you are supposed to play carols during a children's matinee, you can play the accompanying melody on the piano, which is available in the assembly halls of almost all schools and kindergartens. When there is no such musical instrument at the disposal of the children's institution, an accordion, a balalaika, a guitar and even a violin will do.

Older children will surely enjoy singing carols at school, accompanying the text by playing percussion instruments. This will give the room a modern style and vivid originality. In this way, it will be possible to combine in one speech elements of folklore and fashionable pieces of musical styles accepted among the youth. The most creative students will like to read children's carols in the manner of popular repersky texts or accompany the numbers with spectacular dance compositions and costumed performances.

Those who plan to go caroling around houses and apartments, of course, will not want to carry with them some musical instrument, and, among other things, it will be very inconvenient. Therefore, there are only two possible options: sing the short text of the carol without music, or grab a small audio player with a small portable speaker and play a suitable melody on it.By the way, portable mini-acoustics can be connected even to a mobile phone, which has already been downloaded from the Internet music, suitable as an accompaniment to short, merry Christmas carols.
