This one goes out to all of my yearbook alums who bring this song to life every year in our beloved room 701. A few years ago, during a particularly stressful deadline rush with yearbook, a few of my editors made a playlist with just this song in it — about 15 copies, to be exact (I don’t think they fully grasped the concept of the “repeat” option in iTunes). It played over and over as they sang again and again, and it lifted the spirit of our room tremendously during those otherwise stressful hours.
Now, that goes back several years when we were two steps ahead of the fire marshall at all times, and we had Christmas lights dangling from the ceiling, running in every direction. This was a most spirited group, and they infused a life into our room that still exists today (despite the lack of lights!).
So — To all of you whoever contributed to the love and the spirit of our publications room no. 701, I dedicate this song to you. You gave me everything I wanted for Christmas — and more! ❤
