We Wish You A Merry Christmas by Anonymous

“We Wish You a Merry Christmas” is a popular secular sixteenth-century English carol from the West Country of England. The origin of this Christmas carol lies in the English tradition where wealthy people of the community gave Christmas treats to the carolers on Christmas Eve such as ‘figgy puddings’ that were very much like modern day Christmas puddings. It is one of the few traditional holiday carols that makes mention of the New Year celebration.
