Now, for all of the nay sayers, we are not talking about a case of abuse here. This is a couple who has become very comfortable with one another. Way too comfortable. The bills, the kids, the job.

Carol of the Bells: My first memory of this carol is from an album recorded by my high-school choir. I was riveted.
