Christmas Carols are banned by proxy everywhere. If you listen to the so-called "Holiday Music" playing at your typical shopping center, you will only hear "jingle Bells" or "Frosty the Snowman" type of music. It's politically incorrect to play "Silent Night" or "Oh Come All Ye Faithful". The really moving and beautiful carols are not to be heard at "Christmas". Even the name "Christmas" is not heard being replaced by the more generic "Happy Holidays". A few years back I noticed that it's near impossible to find even a "Christmas" card having been replaced by "Holiday" cards. It's strange because I don't even feel like it's a holiday anymore. The corporate society pushes the "holiday" because they need the profits, but in a way they are killing their golden goose because I don't feel very "festive" with all the traditional Christmas icons and sounds. They want us to BUY but they refuse us the JOY that is Christmas. Part of the reason their sales suffer more each year is they are choking the life out of Christmas.
Beware the cult of "government"...
