This is one of three Train originals on Christmas Tahoe
(the others being "Wait For Mary Christmas" and "Shake Up Christmas

"I remember telling a friend of mine, Lyle Workman, I said, "Man, I want to write, like, classic Christmas songs,'" he added. "I said that to Vince Gill, too. Vince said, 'Yeah, man, we all do...'"
