I learned this round by rote in school some forty years ago. After writing it out from memory, I called Mr. Kent, who had taught it to me, to ask for its origin.
He admitted to writing the music himself, the words having been supplied by a colleague, Miss Emma Mueden. Maybe Miss Mueden wrote them herself. They are certainly expressive of her cordial personality. Simon featured several other translations by Mr.

We wish you a merry Christmas We wish you a merry Christmas We wish you a merry Christmas and a happy new year Good tidings we bring to you and your kin We wish you a merry Christmas and a happy new year. Many traditional versions of the song have been recorded.
In , Roy Palmer recorded George Dunn of Quarry Bank , Staffordshire singing a version close to the famous one, which had a familiar version of the chorus, but used the song " Christmas is Coming " as the verses; this recording can be heard on the Vaughan Williams Memorial Library website.
The greeting "a merry Christmas and a happy New Year" is recorded from the early eighteenth century,;  however, the history of the carol itself is unclear. Its origin probably lies in the English tradition wherein wealthy people of the community gave Christmas treats to the carolers on Christmas Eve , such as " figgy pudding " that was very much like modern-day Christmas puddings ;    in the West Country of England, "figgy pudding" referred to a raisin or plum pudding, not necessarily one containing figs.
The song is absent from the collections of West-countrymen Davies Gilbert and  and William Sandys ,  as well as from the great anthologies of Sylvester  and Husk ,  and The Oxford Book of Carols In the comprehensive New Oxford Book of Carols , editors Hugh Keyte and Andrew Parrott describe it as "English traditional" and "[t]he remnant of an envoie much used by wassailers and other luck visitors"; no source or date is given.

After they are allowed in and perform a Mummers play , the boys are served beer by the farmer's maid.
