A favorite Christmas Carol

Most of my favorite carols are deeply traditional, written AT LEAST a hundred years ago. But there are a few more recent ones that I like

Carly Simon’s “Night Before Christmas” is one.

I like the specificity of it’s urban nature. This is a carol that takes place in a city. (“Silver Bells” is another, and I like it for that reason.) I live in a city. I have lived in cities most of my life. I don’t have a lot of experience with sleigh rides.

It’s not super-deep, perhaps, but I like it.
