This is a charming song of a child that sings to Santa Clause asking him to not forget his shoes when he passes by his house and to make sure that he covers up properly as it is cold outside.

Vive le vent is the French version of Jingle bells. Contrary to the English version where you “jingle all the way”, the French song appreciates the wind and the Christmassy atmosphere.

The equivalence to “O Christmas tree” is an ode to the beautiful decorations that are set up in a Christmas tree. Lights, colors, gold, and glee is what makes our decorations extra special.
