As the festive season arrives, so do our favourite Christmas traditions. Such as putting up the Christmas tree, wrapping presents, baking with the family and decorating gingerbread houses. However, one of our favourite Christmas traditions is joyful carols, these old traditional songs have been passed down from generation to generation for centuries. Firstly, these lovely carols were sung as a celebration of Christ's birth. Today they are often heard at churches or around the neighbourhood, noting that many choirs sing purely for charity.
