2008 Canada $20 Holiday Carols (TAX Exempt)

Singing and the Holidays go hand in hand. It's a natural impulse to express one's joy in song; one that predates Christianity when people used to dance and chant in a circle. Etymologists today speculate that the earliest meaning of "carol" actually suggests "circle" rather than "song." The word "carol" began to refer strictly to nativity songs when singing became a regular part of formal church services during the 13th century. The charitable aspects of carolling evolved from beggars who sang in the streets hoping their songs would please passers-by and earn them a gift of food or money.

The custom of carolling from house to house is believed to have been inspired by the watchmen of historic Europe; they too would sing as they walked the streets of their walled cities. No doubt, hearing voices in song is a treat for the listener; but it's also a delight for the singer. Just watch the smiling faces the next time you see people carolling around a Christmas tree.
