Christmas songs

The Christmas songs are small booklets in which the words of the Christmas carols are grouped. These are carefully stored and come out of the drawers from the first days of December.

The texts and melodies of these songs originate from medieval France and are more precisely from the regions of Lyon and Avignon. The texts are in French (sometimes with some passages in Latin).

However, each song has its creole refrain (which does not appear on the hymn) and it is the moment of release when drum, ti-wood, sillac, clapping of hands, fully come into action.
