Tori explained that on "Midwinter Graces" she wanted take out the guilt, repression and shame that go along with Christianity and focus on the joy of the “rebirth of light”—a more accurate sentiment of what Christmas used to mean hundreds of years ago. Though she claims “shocking the Christians” is one of her favorite pastimes, she wanted to make a holiday album that wouldn’t hurt her mother’s feelings but also stay true to her beliefs. Adding, while doing research for this album, she found that some of the traditional English Christmas songs we’ve come to love were stolen from drinking songs.
