It's about that first tingling feeling of festivity I get every year around December 1st that lets me know Christmas is on its way.

Inspired by my friend, Andy Bickle.


Say, do you feel a change out there?
Electricity in the air?

People crowd Fenwick's Window
They're showing specials of your favourite show
And Sufjan's on the radio
It's Christmas

Red cups keeping our hands from cold
Advent calendar - am I too old?

Red toboggans in the snow
Children's faces all aglow
Relient K on the radio
It's Christmas

The sun's not climbing up quite so high
The moon and Jupiter own the sky

Stockings hanging stuffed to blow
We kiss beneath the mistletoe
Barenaked Ladies on the radio
It's Christmas

In a manger long ago
God showed up in flesh and bone
And as the cattle start to low
It's Christmas
