Today’s Christmas writing prompt –
A Christmas Carol or Noel comes from the French word Christmas.
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
Growing up as a child, I sang many Christmas carols, at church, in school and my neighbour’s front door. 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.
