Information based on version Current game version is

You meet an Irish Pirate who wants you to lend him a hand - and your voice - with an old Christmas tradition. This involves spreading cheer by caroling door by door and singing 'A penny to bury the Wren', (don't worry, no birds will actually come to harm). He would like to get a few of the local citizens into the holiday spirit, so you need to help him convince them to sing.

Mission Notes

This mission is only available during the Christmas season.

You will have to visit three houses and convince the residents to sing you a Christmas carol of their own (and learn something about each Nation's Christmas traditions, if you choose). This will get progressively harder to achieve, until you end up at a British puritan's house at the end.

The second house deserves a special mention: during the conversation with an impoverished mother, you can get the option to help her out with a donation. If you choose the third option (give her 1000 doubloons), you will be eligible to receive another title as a follow-up for this mission. Review the article for the follow-up mission For Your Generosity... for details about which conversation options to choose to get there.
