For refusing to sing more Christmas carols a 20-year-old man was hacked dead in Sitio Kama, Brgy. Malabohan, Siaton town in Negros Oriental, recently.

The carolers refused and started leaving the area but one of the drinkers, a certain Reneboy Pilongo of Canaway, Siaton, followed them and hacked Polonio in the nape, the police said.
