do you give cash to carollers?

In our country, carollers expect to be handed money after their singing.  Young and old carollers all expect the same thing.  I wonder what the practice is in other parts of the world, but I am talking about carolling in the Philippines where a group could really collect huge amounts during the X'mas season.

I have started a trend in my own area.  I bought some goodies like candies and cookies which I give out to carollers of all ages.  I remember during my childhood that we were given X'mas goodies when we went carolling from house to house.  Things seem to have changed now but I am trying to bring back that practice.
