Where do Christmas Carols come from? A brief history

The original Christmas Carol dates back to long before the appearance of the religious holiday, a few thousand years back in fact. Pagans would celebrate in song throughout the year but particularly during the winter period. Sung to highlight the celebration of the winter solstice, the shortest day of the year, Pagans would dance around circular megalithic structures during ritual ceremonies. The etymology of the word "Carol,” from Old French "carole" denotes both a song of praise and joy as well as the action of in circles.
