  • This Christmas single by Christian Grammy Award-winning recording artist, producer and songwriter TobyMac features Sixpence None The Richer vocalist Leigh Nash. It is his first holiday single since 2002's "This Christmas."
  • Talking about the season and what it was like making the song, TobyMac said, "Christmas is the most celebrated time of the year for my family. While we were recording the song, we had a week-long Christmas party at my house…in JULY!!! I wanted to write a song that captured that pure delight without missing the spirit of the season… when love came down to let us live."
