Remember, “The Christmas spirit is not what you drink”
Jethro Tull’s “Christmas Song”, an adaptation of the classic Christmas carol, “Once In Royal David City”. The lyrics were originally penned in a poem written by Miss Cecil Frances Humphrey in 1848, which was set to music a year later by Henry John Gauntlet. “Christmas Song” can be found on Jethro Tull’s 1972 album, “Living In The Past”. This version, composed by Tull’s frontman, Ian Anderson, reflects on the true meaning of Christmas (the birth of Jesus Christ) and reminds us that the holiday season was never intended to be celebrated by an overindulgence of food and drink, but rather, by sharing our abundant blessings with those less fortunate than ourselves…from YouTube
