The word carol or carole is a medieval word of French and Anglo-Norman origin, believed to mean a dance song or a circle dance accompanied by singing.

It is unclear when the first carol was written but it is believed that circa 1350 to 1550 is the golden age of English carols and most of the carols followed the verse-refrain pattern.

By the 16th century though, the popularity of carols faltered, almost disappearing entirely if not for the revival that happened by the middle of the 18th century. Most of the carols we know today were written during this period.

JINGLE BELLS

Jingle Bells” is one of the best-known and commonly sung Christmas songs in the world.

It was written by James Lord Pierpont (1822–1893) and published under the title “One Horse Open Sleigh” in the autumn of 1857. The “Jingle Bells” tune is used in French and German songs, although the lyrics are unrelated to the English lyrics. Both celebrate winter fun.

“Jingle Bells” was the first song broadcast from space, in a Christmas-themed prank by Gemini 6 astronauts Tom Stafford and Wally Schirra.

THE 12 DAYS OF CHRISTMAS

The Twelve Days of Christmas” is an English Christmas carol that enumerates a series of increasingly grand gifts given on each of the twelve days of Christmas in the manner of a cumulative song.

The song, first published in England in 1780 without music as a chant or rhyme, is thought to be French in origin.

In the northern counties of England, the song was often called the “Ten Days of Christmas”, the gifts numbering but ten.

FROSTY THE SNOWMAN

Frosty the Snowman” is a popular song written by Walter “Jack” Rollins and Steve Nelson, and first recorded by Gene Autry and the Cass County Boys in 1950.

The song recounts the fictional tale of a snowman that is magically brought to life through a top hat that a group of children place on his head.

Although Frosty enjoys roaming throughout town with the children who constructed him, the sun becomes too much for him to bear and Frosty is forced to leave town, promising he will be back again someday.
