Ticket 66: Write An 'Occasional' Song

A song to celebrate a national holiday or a commonly shared life experience (all the things you might buy a greeting card for).

Christmas Time Is Here Again


Auld Lang Syne
Father's Day (Groucho Marx)
First Of May (Jonathan Coulton)
Happy Birthday (Stevie Wonder)
Happy Birthday To You (trad.)
Happy New Year (Abba)
Shrove Tuesday (Matt Blick)
We Are The Champions (Queen)

And of course too many Christmas songs to mention.
