Answer The word carol came from a Greek dance called a choraulein, which was accompanied by flute music. The dance later spread throughout Europe and became especially popular with the French, who replaced the flute music with singing. People originally performed carols on several occasions during …the year. By the 1600's, carols involved singing only, and Christmas had become the main holiday for these songs. Most of the carols sung today were originally composed in the 1700's and 1800's. They include "O Little Town of Bethlehem" and "Hark! The Herald Angels Sing." The words of the famous carol "Silent Night" were written on Christmas Eve in 1818 by Joseph Mohr, an Austrian priest. Franz Gruber, the organist of Mohr's church, composed the music that same night, and the carol was sung at midnight Mass. "O Holy Night" was introduced at midnight Mass in 1847. Adolphe Adam, a French composer, wrote the music. Popular nonreligious carols include "Jingle Bells" and "White Christmas." ( Full Answer )
Origin of Silent Night 'Silent Night' originated in Austria in 1816. The carol was wrote by Fr. Josef Mohr. Josef Mohr was a young priest serving as parish priest at St Nikolas Church in Oberndorf (some sources say this was a village in Austria; others say Germany). Two days before Christmas 1818,… the bellows in the church organ were found to be rotted through, possibly eaten by rats. Needing music that could still be appreciated by the congregation, Mohr wrote a poem. He then asked the church organist and choirmaster, Franz-Xaver Gruber, if he could set it to music which the two men could sing, accompanied by Mohr on the guitar. Late on Christmas Eve, the men practised the song for the first time, and performed it for Mass. The song that Mohr penned was "Silent Night", and it was first sung on 24 December 1818.

The characters in A Christmas Carol would be the same,whether printed or portrayed in either England or America. Manyproducers have adapted the story in unusual ways (like theMuppets), but the story and its people remain the same.
Dickens called his novel 'A Christmas Carol' because he expected the story to be repeated and shared between generations. He also intended it to bring people together as one, just like the singing of Christmas carols spread joy and bring families together. His carol was a song of praise of the Chris…tmas season and of the recovery of Ebenezer Scrooge, form miserable to joyful. Cleverly, Dickens called the five chapters of the book "staves." A musical stave is a stanza with a consistent theme and mood. Each stave in the story delivers a different message and each has a definite mood. As in a carol each stave can stand alone but each contributes to the carol's overall theme. A good carol also contains a memorable refrain, repeated at appropriate times throughout. In Dickens' A Christmas Carol the refrain is no doubt the blessing from Tiny Tim, "God bless us every one!" It's a refrain that has been repeated countless times since the publishing of A Christmas Carol. The story sings the praises of the sentiments of the Christmas season in a memorable way and will be repeated as long as carols and the Christmas season endure. ( Full Answer )

because they are CHRISTMAS carols and people sing them only on Christmas Day! More detail: Christmas carols are sung and played throughout the Christmas season to celebrate the birth of Jesus, and to celebrate the holiday season. Many of the carols are very spiritual, while others are more 'fu…n and upbeat'. But all of them are to celebrate Christmas - the birth of Christ.

Christmas is the day when Jesus Christ, the son of God, was born to Mother Mary, in a humble manger in the small town of Bethlehem, more than two thousand years ago. A shining star appeared in the sky over Bethlehem and guided Three Wise Men to the small manger where the Christ Child lay. The three …Astrologers brought the gifts of gold Frankincense and Myrrh for the Baby Jesus, because they recognized this child was going to be the savior or Messiah of his chosen people.
