Interesting festive facts…. the words Christmas and Noël don’t look alike at all so what’s the connection?
I’ve always wanted to know: why the word for Christmas in French is ‘Noël?
The word Noël comes from the French word ‘noël’ meaning ‘the Christmas season’ and is a variation of the Latin word ‘natalis’ which in Western Christian traditions references the birth of Christ.
The word Noël first appeared in English sometime in the late 14th century as ‘nowel’ meaning ‘feast of Christmas’.
Well, know you knowël!!
