- Christmas Present (Wooden Heart) is that rare thing, a front-cover-gracing poem, and accompanies the cover art.
- Xmas On The Wagon and Xmas Off The Rails take opposing looks at festive times spent, respectively, sober and sozzled – and come with a note, "with apologies to John Lennon", having taken some clear inspiration from the opening lyrics of his seasonal classic Happy Xmas (War Is Over).
