Sara Groves told Christian Music Today that this song, "is a snapshot of my family at Christmas." She explained: "To anyone else, I think these images will seem simple, but to our family they are loaded with meaning. My Grannie is always with the baby-of-the-year, humming. My Grandad always pulls out toys from his childhood, including a toy train that runs on real steam. And my mother is always baking and making the most amazing food. We always sing the Doxology before dinner, some years with tears and other years with great joy."
