With visions of sugar plums and dirty, sidewalk Santas dancing in my head, I produced this EP.

The opening track sets the stage. I hate the cold. I really don't dream of snow -- it's more of a nightmare, really.

Santa's Sweatshop -- like an angry, buzzing beehive. The drones and the workers are constantly working to keep up with demand. It NEVER ends.

Last Night I Dreamed of Maria -- Long story short, a girl I used to know. It's nothing major.

Carols in the Night -- Singing the songs we know so well.

The Color of Winter -- The doors swing open to reveal freshly fallen snow.

I devoted every hour I possibly could to creating this EP -- and there weren't too many hours available between working a full-time 9-5 and spending each weekend (including working Thanksgiving AND Black Friday) moonlighting in Retail Hell. Then came the mounting bills, the health scares and the aching fatigue of burning a candle at both ends in the hopes that maybe, just maybe, I'd get to the end of this month with a little cash left over for myself. Suffice to say, it's been a stressful holiday season for this particular wage slave.

If you can find it within your heart to give just $4 to download this EP, I'll be eternally grateful. Otherwise, feel free to continue streaming it from this page or from YouTube as much as you'd like. It's my gift to you.

And so, I'm offering this simple phrase to kids from 1 to 92. Although it's been said many times, many ways, Merry Christmas to you.
