Saint Jean de Brebeuf was born in France in 1593 and became a Jesuit missionary who arrived in North America in 1625 to evangelize Native Americans. Amazingly, he lived among the Huron people for over 15 years.

In order to help the Huron understand Christmas, he wrote a verse in the language of the Huron and coupled it with a traditional French tune. This was the first Christmas Carol of North America and it has become known as “The Huron Carol.”
