It's categorized as a Christmas album and there are a few references to the holiday in the songs, but Sting's winter-themed, traditional-folk album plays better on a quiet, cold January night than a festive December gathering.

"And it's that thoughtfulness that does distinguish If on a Winter's Night...; no other Christmas album exists in the head like this. It's a holiday album for people who have never wanted to hear a holiday album, let alone own one. " Stephen Thomas Erlewine
This is the kind of holiday album or winter album that can be listened to beyond the traditional holiday season. Songs about melting snow, the cold, the sea at Christmas time, a hurdy gurdy, and the hounds of winter howling. Much to listen to here and to reflect upon.... during the winter time.

"Take your lute and your stupid made-up name and bugger back to Newcastle!"-Warwick Davis in "Life's Too Short." Also, he ripped this title off from Italo Calvino, just like he ripped of "Nothing Like the Sun" from Anthony Burgess. Get your own damn titles!
