This reason is simple. This EP by Mary Margaret O'Hara is just about the most perfect slice of Christmas I have ever heard and is, I have no doubt, better than any other Christmas recording I have ever heard.
MMO sings in her own inimitable style and gives a quite fabulous rendition of Billy Hayes's brilliant "Blue Christmas". "Silent Night" is a surprise because of the subtle use of a lap-steel guitar which is exquisite and adds a new dimension to the song. "What Are You Doing New Year's Eve" is a gentle and tender version which works beautifully (I love the bass clarinet), but could have been a little longer. As for "Christmas Evermore", this is an original MMO and typical of the keening beauty which she effects so well. It's a beauty and gives an alternative message to Lennon's "Happy Xmas (War Is Over)" with the wish for war to be over - quite pertinent at the moment.
So, even if, like me, you dislike Christmas and act the old killjoy, the humbug, you could not help but to love this 16- minute gem - if you can find it!
