Christmas carols are based on Christian lyrics and relate, in the main, to the Nativity. Christmas carols were
introduced in to church services by St Francis of Assisi in the 12th century. As for the word carols, "carol" is
a derivative of the French word caroller, the interpretation of which means dancing around in a circle. Carol
and carols, eventually came to mean not only to dance but included music and lyrics - hence Christmas
The joyous themes for many traditional Christmas carols were banned in England by the staunch Protestant
Oliver Cromwell and many of the very old Christmas carols and songs were subsequently lost for all time.
Christmas carols were only fully popularised again during the Victorian era when they again expressed joyful
and merry themes in their carol lyrics as opposed to the normal, more sombre, Christian lyrics found in
hymns. As religious observances in the United States and England were closely linked the popularity of
Christmas carols grew in both countries in the 19th century. Many Christmas traditions are relatively recent
such as Santa Claus and reindeer and bear no relation to Christmas carols. We have reflected this in the
unusual and beautifulVictorian Angel Pictures we have included for your pleasure and enjoyment. Today
Christmas songs and carols are also fast becoming a tradition.
