Christmas Carol Spotlight: The Cherry Tree Carol

The Cherry Tree Carol is one of the oldest known Christmas Carols with what you would call a "traceable timeline."  It is traced back as far as the Feast of Corpus Christi in the early 15th century. I love it because it's full of suppositions about Joseph, who's role in the Christmas story is so often and easily overlooked.
