Another sad song in Erik's musical Advent calendar today, Merle Haggard's 1973 single "If We Make It Through December" off his Christmas album Merle Haggard's Christmas Present, deals with a father who's lost his job and can't give his little daughter a proper Christmas celebration. But he's got plans for a better life if they make it through the December. A heartbreaking song and a real tearjerker, and also one of the finest Christmas songs there are. Go, Hag!
