O Tannenbaum (literal translation O fir tree) is a German Christmas song. Based on a traditional folk song, it became associated with the traditional Christmas tree by the early 20th century and sung as a Christmas carol with the English title O Christmas Tree.
This ragtime style arrangement is lots of fun and a nice change of pace from other Christmas arrangements. Information about the carol is available in the Special Notes section.
