Joey+Rory's It's Christmas Time has a stream of consciousness quality to it. Rather than attempt to focus on just one particular aspect of the holiday, this fiddle and mandolin-driven bluegrass song produced by Carl Jackson touches upon multiple factors of the season. There's a nod to American serviceman, who cannot be home for Christmas, but there is also a line about noticing a certain favorite Christmas special on TV and an admonition for those little ones to stay in bed on Christmas eve. In the end, it's a pretty aural reminder that there's sure a whole lot to think about during the Christmas season.
