The word Christmas Carol refers to a piece of vocal music, which uses the Christmas season as its theme. Christmas Carol are religiously based and centre on the Christian belief  of the Birth of Jesus

Here are a few examples  We Three Kings (an Epiphany song), Deck the Hall (a pagan Yuletide drinking song) and  Silent Night – ( composed in 1818 by Franz Xaver Gruber to lyrics by Joseph Mohr ) of carol’s I sang.

 

My favourite Christmas carol is the Drummer Boy.
