Alle Jahre wieder (English: "Every year again") is a well-known German Christmas carol. The text was written in 1837 by Wilhelm Hey. It is usually sung to a melody attributed to Friedrich Silcher, who published it in an 1842 song cycle based on a book of fables by Otto Speckter.
Alternative settings stem from the pen of Ernst Anschütz and Christian Heinrich Rinck. The latter's is nowadays more frequently used for one of Hoffmann von Fallersleben's poems, Abend wird es wieder.
