I've often wondered about the stories behind some of the popular Christmas carols I hear every Christmas season on the radio. Many songs have become so familiar that it's easy to take them for granted. But each Christmas carol has a fascinating history of how it came to be written and performed.

Here are some profiles of famous Christmas carols that tell the stories behind the songs:

* Hark! The Herald Angels Sing

* Angels From We Have Heard on High

* Angels From the Realms of Glory

* It Came Upon a Midnight Clear

* Silent Night

* O Come All Ye Faithful

* O Holy Night

* Mary, Did You Know?

* The First Noel

* Go Tell it on the Mountain

* O Little Town of Bethlehem
