Response to Gidney N Cloyd (Original post)

7. Here's my take.

Carols are hymns.

Hymns which are not carols are to be sung in groups, reverently, earnestly.
Carols are to be sung in groups joyfully, merrily on holidays/holy days.

Those "Christmas carols" that have no reference to the birth of Christ, a la Jingle Bells, Frosty, Rudolph, etc. are all simply Christmas songs.
