Christmas, just like any other holiday, has its very own traditions. Trees. Stockings. Songs. An overweight man riding in a sleigh pulled by reindeer. All those things make Christmas special. One thing it lacks, though, is a connection to football. Thanksgiving has football – Christmas has songs. Why can't Christmas have both?
