Noël is a word of French origin refering either to the Christmas celebration or a Christmas carol.

The dominant opinion holds that Noël is derived from the combinatinon of two Gaulish words used to indicate the rebirth of the sun at the winter solstice: noio (new) and hel (sun) meaning "new sun". In the French language, "Noël" is the main word for "Christmas" rather than an archaic alternative as it is in English.
