OK, in answer to your first question, I know it’s Midsummer, so why am I writing about Christmas carols? Well, this particular hymn is not, in so far as I can see, directly connected to Christmas. At any rate, there is no mention of that specific festival in the lyric, though it is usually performed in the Advent/Christmas season.
