Christmas Idioms 聖誕節慣用語
The dictionary definition of carol is a 'joyous song or hymn', but the word carol is
almost never heard except in connection with Christmas. So, a Christmas carol is
basically any song meant to be sung at Christmas time. 'A Christmas Carol' is also
the title of a famous work by Charles Dickens which tells the story of Ebenezer Scrooge, a
tightfisted businessman, and how he learns to celebrate Christmas. The term
'Scrooge' has since come to mean anyone who is selfish.
