many groups lay claim to the winter season as their
own special time of the year, it occurred to me that
in the spirit of Rodney King's plea "Why can't we just
all get along?", I decided to write a holiday song
that shared the winter season with everyone. After
all, before all the celebrations, and all the belief
systems, winter was here first, in all its frozen
majesty for anyone to enjoy.
despite our differences, let's all come together and
acknowledge the Winter Festival as an all encompassing
umbrella event which hosts the many celebrations of
Christmas, Hanukkah, Kwanzaa, Winter Solstice and
even, Festivus (for the rest of Us).
