I've always been a huge fan of this song (even when I was little and totally got the words wrong.). It's one of those songs that tells a clear story you can see in your head. But I never knew the title, so I couldn't look it up. Amy has provided the title. I am grateful.
Usually the music stations only play it around Christmas, because the song's events take place on Christmas Eve. But I really think it deserves more play than that.
