We wish you a Merry Christmas – Helena Paparizou



Helena Paparizou sings We wish you a Merry Christmas, one of the most known Christmas songs all over the world.

It is known that Greece doesn’t feature its own Christmas songs; most of them are Greek adaptations of popular foreign songs that became common and typical for the Greeks as well throughout the years.

Helena Paparizou sings We wish you a Merry Christmas, a pleasant and tender Christmas song, ideal for celebrations and other festive events during this period of time.

This particular song hasn’t been translated to Greek, despite its popularity and has been played and heard in English.

The composer of the song We Wish You a Merry Christmas cannot be traced,  however it is believed to date back to the 16th century and probably to England.

The tradition of carols is associated with being given Christmas treats for singing to wealthy members of the community. This song reflects this tradition, which remains alive in some parts of the world till today.

Christmas carols are the heart of Christmas anyway!
