This is an old holiday favorite for me. As a child, my family had a Johnny Mathis Christmas album that included this song. I've probably heard it a thousand times, but never tired of listening to it. Every time I hear it, the song conjures up visions of an old-fashioned Christmas. And with those visions come that warm fuzzy feeling deep within me of the simpler times that have passed us by.
Roasting on an open fire.....
Although we have never roasted chestnuts on an open fire, our family has enjoyed plenty o’ campfires. There’s nothing like a good fire and a bag of marshmallows to bring folks together.

There's always some good conversation 'round an OPEN FIRE!
