Yes, I know it's not Thanksgiving yet... I have tons of songs to share with you this Christmas season. I thought I would start posting them now. My piano students have been preparing a Thanksgiving recital at one of the local skilled nursing facilities in town. They are also starting on Christmas music and this is the #1 choice song with the teenagers. Enjoy!
