Ă˘€śI've wanted to make "A VERY MERRY PERRI CHRISTMAS" my whole life,Ă˘€ť says Perri. Ă˘€śChristmas is so big in my family, and IĂ˘€™ve been singing these songs since I was three years old. This EP is a collection of my all-time favorite Christmas songs, plus one original, "Something About December" which my brother and I wrote about finding Christmas wherever you are in the world, because it lives in your heart.Ă˘€ť
