MERRY CHRISTMAS FROM THE NIBBLE

No one knows when the first Christmas goose was roasted or the first Christmas pudding steamed. Some dates are very vague: the first bûche de Noël (Yule log cake), for example, “could have been as early as the 1600s.”* Other sources attribute it to an unnamed Parisian pâtissier in the Victorian Age, sometime after 1870.

But we do know when our favorite Christmas songs debuted.

This list was compiled by Marnie Hanel for the New York Times Magazine issue of December 15, 2013.
