Synopsis

Amazon.com
His is a voice of great depth, able to reflect growing pains and heartbreak with a slight crack in his otherwise manly voice. It is great testament to his interpretive powers that even when delivering a series of holiday songs Merle Haggard is able to make it something deeply touching and personal. This is an interesting collection that puts "Santa Claus Is Coming to Town" up against a tale of deep economic woe ("If We Make It Through December"), while still managing to include several sentimental Christmas tales ("Bobby Wants a Puppy Dog for Christmas," "Grandma's Homemade Christmas Card"). Whether he's singing about hobos, prisoners, fugitives, or family, Haggard always keeps it real. --Rob O'Connor

Our First Christmas LP
Kathy Hodge | Jonesville, NC USA} | 11/15/2001
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This was our first Christmas LP and we bought it 27 years ago. It is The family favorite. Some of the songs may be a little different but I think you will like it. The song "If We Make It Through December" became our theme song. This is the first time I have found it in a cd so I bought it."
