We Wish You A Merry Christmas is a traditional English Christmas carol. The most famous version hails from the West Country in the 1930s but the song itself is thought to date back to the 16th century. It was popularised by Bing Crosby on his 1963 album I Wish You A Merry Christmas.
The carol probably originates from when wealthy people used to give Christmas treats to carollers on Christmas Eve, including the famous figgy pudding (which was very similar to a modern day Christmas pudding, although often didn’t contain figs!).
