True story - Alan once had a dream that he walked into a studio where former O Positive band mate Dave Martin was recording and had brought in a group of kids to sing along with him on a chorus. Although he couldn't make out the lyrics, the melody the kids were singing got stuck in his head. After waking up, Alan kept thinking about how catchy that chorus was, and then realized, wait a minute, that was a dream, he hadn't visited Dave in a studio recording a chorus of kids. So he quickly grabbed an acoustic guitar and started writing music and words to the melody that had come to him in the dream. When it came time to record "Christmas Wishes", Alan chose two eleven year old kids to sing together as if they were brother and sister. Veronica Ingham, daughter of good friends Eileen & David Ingham, and Alan's nephew, Alex Petitti did a great job singing and delivering the script in true Christmas fashion. 

Christmas Wishes (Petitti)

All I want for Christmas is your best wishes

Just like I gave you before

But there's just no stopping

People just keep shopping

But you won't find it at the store

It's a real good start when it's from the heart

So give any way that you can

Cause there's one good reason

It 'tis the season and that's what Christmas is for

Well it's a holiday a time to sing and pray

Cause that's when Jesus was born

So bake some bread with yeast and we'll have a feast

On turkey, potatoes and corn

If you hear Santa walking to your Christmas stocking

Don't get giddy and shout

This December just remember what Christmas is all about

All I want for Christmas is your best wishes

Just like I gave you before

But there's just no stopping

People just keep shopping

But you won't find it at the store

It's a real good start when it's from the heart

So give any way that you can

Cause there's one good reason

It 'tis the season and that's what Christmas is for

While I lay in bed I know my father said it's better to give than to receive

But what I'd really like is a big red bike

But that's just something I need

Well I told my mother about my brother and she said that's it's just greed

Then at the shopping mall I saw a brand new doll

And she was pretty indeed

All I want for Christmas is your best wishes

Just like I gave you before

But there's just no stopping

People just keep shopping

But you won't find it at the store

It's a real good start when it's from the heart

So give any way that you can

Cause there's one good reason

It 'tis the season and that's what Christmas is for

Cause there's one good reason

It 'tis the season and that's what Christmas is for

And that's what Christmas is for

That's what Christmas is for
