Everything you love and maybe what your family hates
It's not actually the Dar Williams Christmas song I love, although I like it. The one I love is "Your Fire Your Soul," which always makes me cry when she gets to, "You are not a punching bag my dear. I think your darkest days should have some light this year, oh, I think you should stay right here"--because I am in a position to be the "I" in that song, the person who has dear friends who go off to be with difficult families and I wish so much that I could protect them.
