"We always sang a lot in our home in general, up in Canada, and we're from Montreal and basically, Santa Claus keeps an apartment there. It's pretty Christmas-y. We've always had a lot of good music in the house all throughout the year. But honestly, there's something about walking outdoors and there's pine trees and a foot of snow that drives sort of a Christmas aesthetic." Singer/songwriter Rufus Wainwright loves his native Montreal at Christmas.
