I've wanted to write a Christmas song for my whole life, and this is my first try. I wrote it during the first snowfall of the year. It just felt right. It was recorded live - all of us in the living room right next to the Christmas tree. I hope you all like it, and I hope it brings you joy this Christmas season. Merry Christmas everyone!


Christmas, it's not just any old holiday
Its not just jingle bells jingling all the way
Its not just Santa and his sleigh

Christmas, is so much more than silver bells
More than candy canes and caramels
So much more than just "Noel"

Christmas is always with us
Christmas will never leave us
With Christmas in your heart every day
Your troubles will be miles away
All of your worries will be led astray
Whether is white, or if its grey
Christmas is here to stay
