Pastor Unger’s writing of “Christmas Cards” was informed by childhood Christmases in Vermont filled with love of faith, family, and friends. It was out of the overflow of this love that he was taught to make a renewed commitment to caring about, and for those who suffer and were in need.
The uplifting seasonal song is one of Pastor, Peter Unger’s more popular songs. Christmas Cards has already garnished impressive views on Youtube, with Christmas just around the corner we thought we would reflect on this song.
Christmas Cards features acoustic guitar, accompanied by piano, with added strings to give a great overall feel and atmosphere. The lyrics are well formed and compliment the song perfectly. One can only imagine, that Pastor Unger is reflecting on past experiences of his own, these also easily relatable for anyone listening to the song too.
The music video contains snap-shots of familiar scenes amongst families around the world. Decorations, snowy villages, children and families having fun. In addition, the song also delivers a religious message, something which is obviously close to Peters heart too.
Style wise, “Christmas Cards” has a definite folk feel, along with Country and acoustic elements.
Pastor Unger writes songs to express his own thoughts, feelings and experiences. He often modestly states that he does not write or produce songs for fame, rather to express his feelings and in some cases his concerns.
