The Damn "Christmas Shoes" song

Six years ago this month, my sister called me to tell me she had decided the fight was over and she was not going to take anymore cancer treatments.  Instead, she was going to spend the rest of her time on earth enjoying her family as much as she could.

She died two weeks after Christmas.

Never once before or after my sister's death has that damned song "Christmas Shoes" brought me comfort.
I wish IT would die.

I'm sorry. That's terrible!

I have never actually heard the Christmas Shoes song, but I have heard about it from so many people!

Here's wishing you a merry Christmas, in spite of all that.

I have always hated that manipulative, trite, horrific song. I'd really like to punch the person who wrote it.
