XXXmas Cheer - Part 2

More Holiday love for ya… This time it comes from long time personal faves Old 97’s. I didn’t even know this song existed until today when Rhett Miller posted the following on Twitter:

I asked Murry if we should play "Here It Is Christmastime" and he said, "What's that?" It's our song! Hello?

This made me laugh and so I looked the song up and found it on Youtube. I’ve not explored enough to see exactly what it’s from, but it’s a nice little western waltz that follows one of Rhett’s familiar themes of strained love with a little “but it’s Christmas” undertone (complete with sleigh bells).
