It’s almost impossible to write a new Christmas song that can compare with the classics. Once a decade there may be that one song that can hang out with “White Christmas.” Every idea has already been done several different ways. Good luck finding a new way to sing about the desire to have snow for Christmas. A good song must convey a universal truth with a specific story. My song called “Cat in the Christmas Tree” will never be a classic but it works. Anybody with a cat knows this song speaks a universal truth. Cats will always mess with the Christmas tree. Are ugly sweaters a universal truth? Maybe I should write about ugly sweaters.
