Twas in the moon of wintertime

Twas in the moon of wintertime


This song is also known as the “Huron Carol” and is probably the oldest Canadian Christmas song. It was written around 1642 by Jean de Brèbeuf, who lend the melody from a traditional french song “Une Yeune Pucelle”. The lyrics were written in the native language of the Huron people and the song was called “Jesous Ahatonhia”. Its first line says “twas in the moon of wintertime”.
