Editor's note: I changed the performer name because the one that was originally listed (Caroline Putron) is not one who the public has heard of; she is not a publicly acknowledged recording artist of the song. If your own kid (or someone you know) sings it, that's nice, but the performer as listed in the 'artist' field has to be one who is publicly and officially acknowledged. For older Christmas songs, such as this one (with no "original" recording), the custom is to put 'Traditional'.
