"Christmases When You Were Mine" and "Christmas Must be Something More" are the two songs on the album that are complete originals by her. "Christmases When You Were Mine" is angsty. It speaks of a certain someone not being there at Christmas. Swift took a chance in writing that--if you think about it, there aren't exactly many sad Christmas songs, and the ones that do exist have been around for seemingly forever. As usual, she pulls it off, though.
"Christmas Must be Something More" can only be described as touching. It tackles the issue of whether Christmas is anything more than a big commercial event.
"What if happiness came in a cardboard box?
Then I think there is something we all forgot" it says. It's deep for a holiday song, but it's the perfect touch on an awesome album. Taylor's rendition of "Silent Night" has gotten a large amount of attention, although the other songs are also great. I definitely don't regret adding this to my collection of music.
