Lovely Christmas

The 15th track on His ND Xmas is "Lovely Christmas" by Jason Ringenberg & Kristi Rose.

This is another track from Yep Roc's Oh Santa comp, and it's also on Jason's Best Tracks And Side Tracks via the same label.

In the song, Kristi celebrates the holiday season in a joyous chorus worthy of Dolly Parton or Tammy Wynette..

Christmas is a lovely time of year
Sitting by the fire with a cup of cheer
Everyone's so happy
So sweet and so sincere
Christmas is a lovely time of year

While Jason's punk rock verses keep getting more and more exasperated about Christmas anxiety

Christmas Christmas what a stress
All the presents, all the stress
One more card and I will scream
My face is turning red and green

Almost like a bipolar mashup between two different songs, which in other words, is an ideal selection for my Christmas mix. Christmas is a lovely time of year, but it's also a stressful one, and some of us can experience both extremes over the course of a three minute song.
