Art History

It is remarkable that carol singing, the gathering of singers around the fireside or in the streets at Christmastime, should still prosper in this age. This delightful ritual survives, despite the age of television and mass entertainment. It has outlasted many other customs that have disappeared in the face of modern pressures, and other rites that had a less certain hold on peoples true feelings. It still symbolizes to us the spirit of peace and brotherhood, the unity of the family, and the values of stable community lifeideals that transcend its Christian meaning.
