When I first heard this song around 2003 I loved it instantly, and it was the best Christmas I ever had.

Have to add that this just may be the best Xmass song by a rock band. Also don't hold you're breath waiting for either peace between men on Earth or from somewhere else. I heard that a long time ago God said to man. 'Man Get Lost and Come Find Me Later. That later just may not be on Earth as many have been led to believe.

I always liked this track. Even though ELP tried to continue and still do. This was definitely their last great work as a band. A nice way to bow out.
As for the religious commentary that's a great topic for an extensive discussion in another forum. I will say that the best work on religion and theology by a rock band besides Aqualung the album is The Only Way by ELP on Tarkus.

"a valid question: where's the "peace on earth, good will toward men" promised with the coming of christ?
answer: it has been accomplished ! however, the peace obtained is between god & man, not man & man! it is a peace that allows sinful man to fellowship with a holy god, in the spirit realm! ask me how i know!"

Yes, but if we were truly at peace with God, we would be at peace with one another. That hasn't happened yet, and in fact, God too often becomes the excuse for yet another war.

Oddly, I've always found this song simultaneous l y depressing and uplifting. The Christmas we get, we deserve!
