Abstract

The singing of Christmas carols has echoed through the ages to contribute much to our spirit of Christmas today. In the year 129 the Bishop of Rome instituted the custom of celebrating the Nativity with Christmas carols, and the first known carol was "Gloria in Excelsis Deo." The words of the song were taken from the Bible, which was only a group of stories at that time.
