Ian Anderson about the song Birthday Card At Christmas: "my daughter Gael, like millions of other unfortunates, celebrates her birthday on a hair after Christmas.Overshadowed by the big event such birthdays can mat and superficial fleetingly included in their uneventful passing. The anxious extensive celebration of the Christian calendar overshadows too, some say, the humble birthday of one j.
