A festive tune about letting the spirit of the Christmas season into your heart, despite what may be happening in the world or in your tiny little piece of it.
This release was my thank you to everyone who had let some of my music into their lives as I released my back catalog by download. I’ve always loved Christmas records and have always written Christmas songs. This single represents the first time I recorded one. It was a pleasure to do, since I got to use all of those familiar Christmas sounds: sleigh bells, bell chimes and lots and lots of guitars.
My friend Brian Fitzpatrick did the artwork for me. To me, it looks like the door in the last verse. The epilogue to this track, which I released just after Thanksgiving, was that I listened to it being played on the radio on Christmas morning.
