I discovered this on this very site, in fact! There is, however no entry for it in the 'meanings' section of the site.
I had always thought it was 'doing the rounds' or 'making the rounds', which sounds like an electioneering or milk-round related phrase, but 'going the rounds' sounds more lke something to do with boxing. Does anyone know which is correct, what is its origin and can it be added to the site?
Merry Christmas everyone!
