The lyrics—which focus on giving back at this special time of year—are incredibly heartwarming and wholesome; they are a reminder that despite the chaotic pace of life, there is still beauty in moments of simplicity. Lyrics like "When we give more than what we've got and carry this tune from me to you and spread a little joy and share a little love -- with a bow" speaks about the spirit of giving and sharing love towards others. It's a reminder that there is more to life and that it's important to remember what the true essence of Christmas is – peace and love. The song itself has a timeless quality that transcends contemporary trends; its luscious strings, tender vocals, and delicate acoustic guitar come together to create a warm and comforting atmosphere that instantly feels like home.

It was and is one of the most magical aspects of the holidays for me, and it always brings me back to my childhood," Isabelle said.

Isabelle has not only provided the world with beautiful music but has used her platform to make an impact in Uganda. In 2017, she established the Bulamu Raise Your Voice Foundation, which works to bring sports and extracurricular activities into local schools, create a recycling program and educate the public of Lake Bunyonyi about water safety. The foundation works closely with community leaders to coordinate its efforts and is constantly finding ways to increase its impact.

The timeless track has become something of an anthem during the winter season. Its cheery melody and gentle acoustic guitar riff serve as a reminder that there is beauty and serenity to be found in life’s simple pleasures. Meanwhile, Fries' vocal performance is nothing short of awe-inspiring; her voice soars through each line of the song with heartfelt emotion and soulful expression.
