Christmas Music is a big deal and while people have varying opinions, for many Montanans the sounds of the season are one of the best parts of the holidays.  Oh sure, there are different TV shows and Christmas movies.  Rudolph, Frosty, Charlie Brown, Elf, Christmas Vacation, and The Christmas Story are all popular, but the music, well that is like walking down a candy can-filled memory lane.

Originally recorded by Sir Paul McCartney back in 1980, the song has been re-done by various artists. The song has an upbeat feel with the use of different instruments including a synthesizer and while it's been around for over 40 years, you probably wouldn't call it traditional. However, you certainly can't argue that it hasn't stood the test of time.
