I read a lot of reviews about that album, some people were leery of why he was he doing a Christmas album, was it for money? was it a joke? I read he donated the money he made from the album to charity. I don't know if that was true but it would be a nice sentiment. My kids and I really have enjoyed this song and video, if you look at the part where they show the starry sky, there is a shooting star. I always told my boys that it was Santa in his sleigh since Santa was in one of the next scenes.
