Why I Love These Holidays
Music and Lyrics by Chris LaVancher BMI 2017

Come and sit down by the fire
Rest and warm your chilly bones
I’ll put on a pot of coffee
And we’ll talk ‘til the night grows old

Chorus:
The wind might blow
And the snow might fall
When the world outside is cold and gray
Nothing like being with an old, old friend
That’s why I love these holidays

Tell ‘bout your children
Did Michael make it home this year
I know you’ve been awfully worried
That they’ll deploy for another tour

And is Sara still in Athens
With the man she met in Spain
It’s like a romance novel she’s walked into
She’s livin’ life like a dream

What about you
What have you been up to
Are you still writing poetry?
I haven’t touched this guitar that much
But tonight you’ve inspired me

Chorus:
The wind might blow
And the snow might fall
When the world outside is cold and gray
Nothing like being with an old, old friend
That’s why I love these holidays

Let me fill your cup one more time
It sure is hard to let you go
Once a year’s just not enough
I miss you, I hope you know

Chorus:
The wind might blow
And the snow might fall
When the world outside is cold and gray
Nothing like being with an old, old friend
That’s why I love these holidays
Nothing like being with an old, old friend
My love to you this holiday
