Yes and no.

Yes because you can include it in a Christmas collection and few would bat an eye, for the reasons mentioned above.

No because you can play it when it's not Christmas and nobody bats an eye.

Best of both worlds. Plus, it rocks. But I just can't quite handle the syncopation. In my mind, there's always a half-beat between the theme and the jazzy part. Drives me nuts, but try as I might, I just can't tap my foot the way the sheet music implies I should, during the theme.

Oh well. I play it anyway. My head's just in the wrong place when I do. I doubt anyone's ever noticed my error.
