  • Deck the Halls with Boughs of Holly


This song’s music (but not its words) was developed in Wales.


It resembled songs by English Madrigals in the 1500’s.


  • Decking the Halls with Boughs of Holly or decorating for the first day of winter was a tradition dating back to ancient Egyptians, Romans, Greeks and Northern European Druids.


Deck the Halls begins to distinguish between Holy Day and Holiday with its festive theme for a joyous New Year.


It was basically a dance, where folks would circle a harp player, who played the Fa la lalala portion.


Later, they sang Fa la lalala, la lalala as a sort of medieval folly.


One London harpist, Edward Jones published an early version of the song in 1784 in his book: Musical and Poetical Relicks of the Welsh Bards.


The song came to prominence when Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart added it to his repertoire in a duet for violin and piano.
