Songfacts®:

  • This song had been around for about ten years before Sonata Artica found the time to record it. Finally during the 2014 Pariah's Child sessions, they managed to do the basic tracks and in the fall of 2015 they finished the song.

    The band explained: "I guess the main reason for the delay was getting the lyrics done, it's nearly impossible to get into the Christmas mood unless it's actually… you guessed it, Christmas. Hats off to Tony (Kakko, vocals) since he did it anyway, this autumn, and without any snow, we might add."
