The first Carol song, according to legend was sung by angels appearing to the shepherd of Bethlehem and declaring the birth of Christ and "peace on Earth goodwill to men".
Traditionally carols were sung to remind every one of the true meaning of Christmas. With Christmas coming more secularized and commercialized, it is important to remember he is the reason for the season. Popular holiday songs like jingle bells Frosty the Snowman and many others. Even though the songs aren't bad songs they can still be listen to and enjoyed this Christmas season along with many others to come. However we have traditional Christmas carols to help remind us what the real season of Christmas is about.
"God rest ye Merry gentlemen let nothing you dismay me, remember Christ our Savior is born on Christmas Day to save us all from Satan's power though we have gone astray" "and I are deeply troubled world, where there seems an abundant dismay, we can indeed take comfort and joy from the knowledge that Christ our Savior was born on Christmas Day, to save us all from sings power when we were gone astray." Close quote
Thomas S, Monson said in the 2011 christmas devotional "
Through this Christmas season create Christmas time with comfort and joy with your families and other loved ones that you can share fond memories with in the future Christmases to come.
