This quiet tune started out as a Dave Solo feature in early shows, and was included in Remember Two Things as one of the Dave and Tim tracks on the album compilation. Throughout the years, this song has regularly been played during the the pre-holiday
season, paying ode to the story of a man who had a profound impact on humanity. This song has always featured Carter on backing vocals and was recorded during the Everyday studio recording sessions for release on the Platinum Christmas
compilation disc. During live play, Dave usually quotes a line from The Beatles' "All You Need is Love" and "Can't Buy Me Love".
When introducing the song, Dave often gives a disclaimer that the song is "not a religious song, just a story" (09.18.10
The song's debut (introduced that night as "Blood of Our Children") was long thought to be 12.23.92
. When the unknown 12.21.92
show was released by management on June 8, 2010 as part of the DMBlive series, Christmas Song appeared in the encore, moving its known debut date back two days. There is no dialogue before or after the song to mark its first time being played, so it is still possible that the real debut came earlier than this even.
