  10. Christmas in France In France, yule logs made out of cherry wood are often burned in French homes. The log is carried into the home on Christmas Eve and is sprinkled with red wine to make the log smell nice when it is burning. There is a custom that the log and candles are left burning all night with some food and drinks left out in case Mary and the baby Jesus come past during the night.

  11. Christmas in France The main Christmas meal, called Réveillon, is eaten after everyone has returned from the midnight Church Service on Christmas Eve. Another celebration in France is that 13 different desserts are eaten! All the desserts are made from different types of fruit, nuts and pastries.

  12. O Holy Night Oh Holy Night, ‘Cantique de Noel’, was composed by Adolphe Adam in 1847 to the poem ‘Minuit chrétiens’ written by his friend Placide Clappeau, a commissioner of wines in a small French town.

  13. O Holy Night It was translated into English by the American Unitarian minister John Sullivan Dwight in 1855. He was an ardent abolitionist and favoured the reference in the third verse: "for the slave is our brother". It became a very popular carol in the anti-slavery North during the Civil War.

  14. O Holy Night On 24 December 1906 Reginald Fessenden, a Canadian inventor, broadcast the first AM radio programme which included him playing O Holy Night on the violin. There is a possibility that this was the first song ever broadcast over radio.

  15. O Holy Night Performed by Julie Williams, K School of Music accompanied by Becky White

  16. O Holy Night Oh holy night! The stars are brightly shining It is the night of the dear Savior's birth! Long lay the world in sin and error pining Till he appear'd and the soul felt its worth. A thrill of hope the weary world rejoices For yonder breaks a new and glorious morn!

  17. O Holy Night Fall on your knees Oh hear the angel voices Oh night divine Oh night when Christ was born Oh night divine Oh night divine

  18. O Holy Night Led by the light of Faith serenely beaming With glowing hearts by His cradle we stand So led by light of a star sweetly gleaming Here come the wise men from Orient land The King of Kings lay thus in lowly manger In all our trials born to be our friend.

  19. O Holy Night Truly He taught us to love one another His law is love and His gospel is peace Chains shall He break for the slave is our brother And in His name all oppression shall cease Sweet hymns of joy in grateful chorus raise we, Let all within us praise His holy name.

Mass is celebrated on Christmas morning.

Ave Maria – Greece/Italy Hail Mary or Angelic Salutation is from the Greek and then later Latin Ave Maria (Salutatio Angelica) and is a traditional Catholic and Eastern Orthodox prayer calling for the intercession of Mary, the mother of Jesus.
