    Walk Out to Winter isn't a Christmas song though is it? Or is this going to be like the argument about Die Hard?

                Only because it’s on one of the Xmas compilations they play in the place where I’ve spent the last few Xmases. To be honest, I wasn’t even really aware of the sing before then that I can recall.
