I still remember the first time heard this little number several years ago. It was of course while I was in the car with my mother as she was dragging me around the city knocking out your typical Christmas errands. I couldn’t put a year on it but I am guessing this is back when I couldn’t just stay home by myself. Not sure why she would want to drag a ball and chain (me) with her everywhere she went in December, but for some reason I was with her in the family SUV and this song seemed to brighten up my misery. It was actually the first Christmas song I had heard that tells it like it is and carries so much truth and character with it.

Now don’t get me wrong, I love the traditional Christmas music that celebrates the birth of Jesus, but I especially have a bond with this song and I am happy to share! Cheers!
