Let's Make Christmas!

A couple of lines from my new Christmas song sum it up:

"Maybe Gabriel was right
And there's nothing to fear.
All I want for Christmas
Is Christmas this year."

and later

"But, I can't do it alone.
Jesus was homeless
Let's make him a home."

TUTTI-                       I can confess if you can forgive it. 
  
N-Maybe Gabriel was right, 
  
TUTTI-                                   and there’s nothing to fear… 
                                    All I want for Christmas is Christmas this year.
