We all are barraged with Christmas carols at the end of each calendar year—at home, in church, on the street, in stores, riding elevators. We just can’t get away from them. How is it that so many wonderful songs have been inspired by this season of the year? Where did they come from? Who created them? When? Why? We explore the stories behind our favorite holiday music, some shrouded in mystery spread over centuries, some from a specific time and place. And we’ll be surprised at how many traditional carols originated in America and how much wonder was involved in how our favorites came to be.
