About Christmas 2019 - Carols - Set Mint

The word carol comes from the French word carole, meaning circle dance, or song of praise and joy.

There are historical records from as early as 129 AD of songs written specifically for Christmas celebrations. These Christmas songs were primarily written in Latin, and were not called Carols, but hymns.
