LINER NOTES: These lyrics were inspired by a few of the cards we received during the holiday season of 2005. My mother-in-law, Phyllis Kelly-Bouza, is a painter and sends out a card-sized version of one of her paintings every year. This one was called "Tree of Life" and it had an array of colors that remind you of an abstract stained glass. The other was from my cousin, Dean, who lives on the East Coast. It was of a lone pine bough lying in the snow. I loved its simplicity.
Just a note to say, despite this song's content, I am in no way judgmental about the Christmas Card thing. There have been years we haven't gotten around to sending one out. I do love to get the notes and letters that tell what a person has been up to, but I'm not dissing those who don't have time for that.
CHRISTMAS CARDS is also included on IDAHO HO HO, a compilation CD published in 2010 by Moxie Java
