‘Tis the season…and for me, it just wouldn’t be Christmas without hearing this song. Haven’t heard it yet on the radio, but I’m sure I will soon.
A silly little ditty, yes, but shouldn’t Christmas (at least the secular aspect of it) be silly and bright?
Welcome to my Christmas song
I’d like to thank you for the year
So I’m sending you this Christmas card
To say it’s nice to have you here
I like thinking that the boys send me a Christmas card every year.
This song was actually released as a single, believe it or not. The B-side is also a Christmas tune called Ho! Ho! Ho! (Who’d be a turkey at Christmas). Another silly little ditty for sure.
So merry Christmas one and all
There’s no place I’d rather be
Than asking you if you’d oblige
Stepping into Christmas with me
Step Into Christmas (1974)
