They DISH you a merry Christmas!
DISH Network desired a contemporary take on the holiday classic, “We wish you a merry Christmas”, which dates back to the 1800’s.
The song is in the public domain & thus open to rearrangement, allowing Kansas City composer, Julian Bickford to spike the classic cordial tune.
If you’re interested to know more holiday songs in the public domain, here is a list:
“Deck the Halls”
“The First Noel”
“Hark, The Herald Angels Sing”
“Joy to the World”
“Come All Ye Faithful”
“The Twelve Days of Christmas”
Please note however: just because a song is in the public domain, there very well may be copyrights to particular arrangement of the song.
