The Christmas Spirit
One of the things I like the most about Christmas is that with certain exceptions, everyone seems nicer during the holidays. People wish you "Merry Christmas" or "Happy New Year" and they actually seem to mean it. It's kind of funny how two or three words can instantly brighten your day.
Johnny Cash probably isn't the first name that comes to mind when you think of Christmas music. But he was a deeply religious person, and he recorded four different Christmas albums over the course of his career. In "The Christmas Spirit," Cash recalls a dream where he traveled all over the world, and relates the various ways people in other countries celebrate and spread the spirit of the holiday. It's the title track from his 1962 album The Christmas Spirit.
