1. A noisy, boisterous celebration or parade.
2. A mock serenade with pots, pans, kettles, etc., given for a newly married couple. Also known as charivari or shivaree.

The dead were known to go about
Callithumping well into the night
By order of irate neighbours
They got chained into their stone beds
