The children wait for the homeowners to reward them with coins and other treats. Homeowners may opt not to give anything, telling the children, "Patatawarin!"
The children's closing line typically comes in two forms:
"Thank you, thank you, ang babait ninyo (you are so generous), thank you!"
"Thank you, thank you, ang babarat ninyo (you are so stingy), thank you!"
Formal carollers perform pangangaroling to raise funds for various causes. They may also inform the homeowners ahead about the carolling. Most of the time, they rehearsed for the performance and prepared suitable apparel and instruments.
