Although the song is at Big Generator which is doubtfully a prog album.


I checked the lyrics for this one and didn't find much of a Christmas connection either. Is there anything I might be missing?

Holy Lamb was about the harmonic convergence which was the first global meditation and not about Christmas.

My mistake, I was quoting extension written to Chris Hedges' book about Yes, written by polish journalist.
 
I don't know of a Chris Hedges book about Yes. There was a Chris Welch book and a Dan Hedges book(long out of print). Maybe you are conflating the two.

Might very well be, since I read both Wink
yet you still have time!

LOL my buddy and I literally joke about this being one of the biggest cringe lyrics, ever LOL.

There are parts on the Maxophone record that have a festive, Christmas feel to them:


"What is Prog?"-verslibre


Mellotron or GTFO.

Robert Fripp's first guitar was a Christmas gift!   Patricia Fripp told me that this photo was taken the day after Christmas.  Bob was 11 or 12.  

Merry Christmas, one and all!

I mentioned this one on the bottom of page 3 and also included a link to the video.

One I don't think I mentioned is "blood on the rooftops" by Genesis. It has the line "we always watch the Queen on Christmas day" and so for that reason I like to hear it on Christmas. Over all it's not a Christmas song though but the sound is kind of wintery imo.

Ok, it looks like I did mention that Genesis song on page 1. Ok, now I know my memory is going to crap. Lol. 

I guess after that one the closest thing Genesis have to a christmas song is "snowbound."

Not a Prog song, so off-topic, but as it is Christmas (at least it still is where I live).




"Here comes Santa in his sleigh
Those silver bells they sound so gay
His shiny sleigh is heaped with toys
To give to all good girls and boys...".

Ok, these songs maybe aren't quite prog but they are from a legend in the genre so they should get mentioned. Also, neither are Christmas songs exactly but are from his Christmas album and have christmas tunes embedded in them.
