A cherry Xmas: "Christmas Holds No Joy for Me"--Harry Black (1928)
Please don't be misled--I do want you to have a joyful ninth day of Christmas. I want everyone to. Harry Black, however, harbors terrible memories of the holiday--memories that sound like something out of a sad 1928 country song. By no coincidence, this is a sad 1928 country song, concocted by Carson Robison and Frank Luther. Thanks a lot, Carson and Frank.
The flip side, Jesus the Light of the World, is much cheerier, if that helps. Far more conventional Christmas fare, too.
