Joy to the World

Few things remind us of Christmas like the songs we’ve been listening to for most of our lives. Starting weeks before Thanksgiving, we hear them on television and almost everywhere we go. When anything becomes this familiar, it’s easy to appreciate the feeling, but lose the meaning behind the words. Some of the most popular Christmas carols have histories that have gotten lost through the years. In this series, we’ll explore these songs, hear them again for the first time, and remember they were written to bring joy to the world!
