We Wish You a Merry Christmas

We just learned about the Christmas carol Deck the Halls.

Another famous Christmas carol is We Wish You a Merry Christmas.

This song was written some time around 1935 by an organist named Arthur Warrell.
When he first wrote it, he used the words "I wish you a merry Christmas" instead of "We wish you a merry Christmas".

One of the funny things is the figgy pudding that people demand before they go.
That is an old dessert that was usually like a sweet cake with honey fruits and nuts.

There were also some funny people who had a different version of the song and had the ending of "New Year" rhyme with "barrel of beer".
