I wouldn't really have thought of this as a Christmas song really, but it seems to appear on a lot of the lists and compilation albums. Watching the video, there is a lot of dressing up for the cold weather, and a lot of fake snow too.
Musically, there are bells again. It's strange to me how many of the seasonal songs seem to rely on these to make what might otherwise seem odd fit better with the season.
The song was actually written after someone known to the band killed themselves and this puts the lyrics into a different context altogether. Even so, it's still going to be one of my selection.
