Song 478: Step Into Christmas

Elton John’s “Step Into Christmas” is the somewhat forgotten rock performer original Christmas song from the 60s and 70s. You hear John Lennon’s offering, and the Kinks’ “Father Christmas”, more often than you hear this tune at this time of year.

That’s a shame, it’s a happy and uplifting song fitting for the season. One of the reasons I really like it is because it actually mentions Christmas cards a few times in the lyrics. I’m hopeful that the card tradition will make a comeback in our world, I see them as little gifts received throughout the season with the primary intent of making the recipient a little happier. Why wouldn’t we do that more?
