I’m more inclined to say batten down the hatches than Merry Christmas at this time of year, and I used to say I would never record a Christmas song ever – but this may one day be the only exception, being the first on the seasonal subject I can relate to.
It’s a love song really, for family, and that kind of love can make this time of year so special, or so lonely.
If you’re feeling the former, I hope time slows and you can soak up every sparkling moment. If you’re in the latter group, I’m working on a time machine and will keep you posted.
In the meantime, I’ll be humming this tune. Here’s to the holidays.
