My carol songbook says that it was the first Christmas hymn of the church, also called the "Angel's Hymn". Telesphorus, Bishop of Rome, A.D. 129, ordained that "In the Holy Night of the Nativity of our Lord and Saviour, all shall solemnly sing the 'Angel's Hymn.'" Hope that helps.

Glory to God in the Highest! this is mentioned in the Bible as sung by the Angels. Sop the songs- Angels we have heard on High- a.k.a. Gloria, well, that"s a plank holder or, maybe Cloud duster.

What Child Is This tops the list of the mos popular Christmas hymns. Other hymns include Joy to the World, Hark the Harold Angels Sing, The First Noel and Angels We Have Heard on High. Of course, the list can change based on who is putting the list together.

Christmas, since the X stands for Christ. (I have heard it pronounced "X-muss" also.)

They are Christmas Carols. Christmas Carols are songs usually heard at Christmas time.
