But no matter the singer, the message of the tune is always the same. Christmas time is all about gathering together with friends and family to celebrate the birth of our Savior, Jesus Christ. But sometimes, we are unable to with our loved ones during the holidays and that can be very difficult. The words of this song may be simple, but they ring true for so many of us during the Christmas season. Even if we cannot physically be with our families, we will always be together in our hearts.

If only in my dreams'

When the hustle and bustle of the holidays starts to wear on you, just remember the real reason that we are gathering at Christmas. And make sure to give your loved ones an extra hug for all the others that cannot be with us this year.
