Here's a great seasonal tune I learned a zillion years ago under the name "Old Christmas." Last January I ran into Tom Sauber at the Old Time Gathering in Portland and asked him about the tune. Turns out the Deserets & yers truly had the name wrong. The tune comes from Oklahoma fiddler Uncle Dick Hutchinson and he called it "Christmas Eve."
