When I was nine years old, my parents had the good sense to move only a block and a half away from one of the favorite sledding hills in my hometown of Austin, Minnesota. This song attempts to capture the memories of one night of my life as a child, and I am hoping that any children who sing this will also come to know the magic of a January evening under a star-filled sky, screaming and laughing down a hill of fresh snow with their friends.
