The joyous topics for many traditional Christmas carols were banned in England from the staunch Protestant Oliver Cromwell and many of the very old Christmas carols and songs were then lost for all time. Christmas carols were just completely popularised again during the Victorian era when they again expressed joyful and merry themes in their carol lyrics as opposed to the standard, more sombre, Christian legends seen in hymns. As spiritual observances in the USA and England were closely connected the popularity of Christmas carols grew in both nations in the 19th century.Many Christmas traditions are relatively recent for example Santa Claus and reindeer and bear no relation to Christmas carols.
