We Wish You a Merry Christmas

by admin on October 21, 2012

"We Wish You a Merry Christmas" is a popular secular sixteenth-century English
carol. The origin of this Christmas carol lies in the English tradition where wealthy
people gave Christmas treats to the carolers on Christmas Eve such as 'figgy
puddings.' It is one of the few traditional holiday carols that makes mention of the
New Year celebration.
