The carol “Christmas Bells,” long a standard of the holiday, is a case in point. Written by the renowned poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow on Christmas Day , a time when it was not yet clear that the North would win the American Civil War, its original verses contain two stanzas that refer directly to that conflict. Longfellow wrote Christmas Bells with the purpose of inspiring people to hold onto hope in times of despair. Asked by Keya D # Answered by jill d .
