Merry Christmas Y'all! Our Little Gift To You!

Hey everybody,

Merry Christmas! We are approaching 4 years of blogging every day consecutively, and Meredith and I want to share our gratitude with all our faithful followers, friends, and family who check the blog daily - it's really nice to know that I have y'all out there who care about us enough to check in, and that I'm not just sitting here wasting an hour a day for four years. Haha!

Anyway, it's Christmas! We've been giving gifts for the past 24 hours (though, most of them haven't been properly wrapped), and wanted to give y'all your own unwrapped gift. It's not much, just a song.

In 1997ish, when I was in high school, I was playing Canon in D around Christmas and a commercial came on tv that was playing Jolly Old Saint Nicolas and I realized it had a similar chord progression. Then, I started playing other Christmas melodies to the tune (since then, there has been a couple arrangements of Christmas carols put to Canon in D that I've heard), but this version is a Dale Benfield original. ;) I hope you enjoy it!

Merry Christmas!
Dale, Mere, Ellie, and Cece
