Just a happy Christmas song. Somewhat fictional, but based on true events. I really don't get all that excited about Christmas anymore.

Story behind the song
On Christmas Eve, the Associate Warden (who was a good guy) would actually have a laundry cart full of 'goodie bags' wheeled into each cell block, one-by-one, and and you would, personally, be called down and he would hand you your bag (a carton of Camels, some hard candy, and some mixed nuts, etc.), and then shake your hand and wish you a Merry Christmas. I thought it was pretty cheesy at the time, but in retrospect, I think it was mighty white of him.
And those are my fondest memories of Christmas. No wonder I'm such a sick bastard.
