On My Soapbox: 12 days of Taylor Christmas

This column represents the thoughts and opinions of Jason Hennington. This is NOT the opinion of the Taylor Press.

Has anyone ever written a Christmas song about Taylor? A few years ago, the Dabbling Duck submitted a Taylor Christmas story, which was awesome by the way. But I don’t know if a song has been written. So, I decided to take a crack at it.

I think I’ll start working on my 2020 rap up for next week while you enjoy this.

Read the entire column, then go back and sing it to the tune of 12 Days of Christmas.
