"My partner and I, we were talking about Christmas. And it's a holiday of the heart, and you know, like we listened to 'Silent Night' and 'In the Bleak Midwinter,' and that to me was like a lullaby, ... And after all, this holiday's about a baby. So I wanted to put a human face on this, and I said, 'Well, what would you say if you were singing to your baby, telling your baby about Christmas? What would you say?' And so I came up with this song."
