The whole point of me doing a Christmas record and what I centered it around was the song 'Christmas with You' from the point-of-view of the soldiers in Iraq.
From a commercial point of view if Christmas did not exist it would be necessary to invent it.
Brits and Americans have hundreds of different phrases for the same thing. Luckily it's usually a source of amusement rather than frustration. A flashlight by any other name is still a torch. My personal favourite is 'fairy lights ' which we boringly refer to as 'Christmas lights.'
I've been playing on Christmas for the last 10 11 12 years. So just got to get up early with the babies and give them their toys and try to get a nap in and just come to play.
I remember wishing there was snow in L.A. And how jealous we used to get of those Christmas specials with kids playing in the snow.
There's never really been a real hood Christmas movie.
If you pray enough for things I am proof that they can happen. I feel like a kid on Christmas day now every day. It's something I have wanted for a long time and I am as happy as anyone to be here. It is great to be back at my first love.
One Christmas build-up tradition however has totally bypassed me - that of going up to town and 'doing a show.'
It may be a cliche but it's true - the build-up to Christmas is so much more pleasurable than the actual day itself.
Black Friday is not another bad hair day in Wall Street. It's the term used by American retailers to describe the day after the Thanksgiving Holiday seen as the semi-official start of Christmas shopping season.
According to an ancient Sardinian legend the bodies of those who are born on Christmas Eve will never dissolve into dust but are preserved until the end of time.
I beg people not to accept the seasonal ritual of well-timed charity on Christmas Eve. It's blasphemy.
My favorite traditional Christmas movie that I like to watch is All Quiet on the Western Front. It's just not December without that movie in my house.
So we're considering doing a new Christmas album because there's been Christmas episodes since then and maybe finally do the version of 'The Most Offensive Song Ever' with lyrics intact.
Online there's no time. It's always Christmas.
Christmas in L.A. is weird. There's no snow. It's not even cold.
You don't want your jewelry to make you look fat. A lot of what's out there now does - you just wind up looking like a Christmas tree.
When I was 12 all I wanted for Christmas was a trampoline or a four-wheeler. I ended up getting both presents for Christmas.
When you have kids you instantly feel that you do not want to do them wrong. Those dads that go off to Florida and start a new life I couldn't imagine that: seeing my kid once every Christmas every three years. If I'm gone for six days it feels like too much.
The sharpest memory of our old-fashioned Christmas eve is my mother's hand making sure I was settled in bed.
Tax cuts should be for life not just for Christmas.
On the whole I prefer Christmas as an adult than I did as a child.
You can't allow the forces of political correction to shut you up. I mean why are people afraid to say 'Merry Christmas?' Give me a break. If people don't like it yeah they can go do something else.
The cheese board is my big treat at Christmas that I have to deny myself during the rest of year.
