12 Days of Arbor Christmas - Day 12: Til' Next Christmas Eve by Jon Montague

For the past 12 years, musicians from South Jersey, Philadelphia, and beyond.. have gathered to record a compilation album and live play called the Arbor Christmas Show. It's inspired by "the old Christmas TV specials that had the celebrity host "at home" and all of their celebrity friends would stop by and hang out and maybe perform a song." The songs have been amazing year after year, so I wanted to share my top 12. But feel free to explore for yourself! All of the compilations are available for downloaded/stream at
Day 12: Til' Next Christmas Eve by Jon Montague

"Christmas comes just once a year, I know this much is true. But only once a year to be with you my dear is just too hard to do."

Jon Montague created the show, and sadly he was only here for the first two years. His perfectly written, closing of the Christmas season song was the one to start it all off in 1999. Without him and this song, the Arbor Christmas show and compilation wouldn't be what it is today. The bar was set high, right from the start. Check out both versions of the song below.
