      It's not a Yes song, as such, since the band didn't exist at the time it was made and released, and it's only associated with the festering season because hunting and killing foxes has 'traditionally' been a 'recreational' pursuit of the landed classes and idle rich at this time of year! Thankfully something being consigned to history where it belongs.
      Offhand, I can't think of any Yes songs that could be called Christmas songs. Which is a relief.
      Trans-Siberia Orchestra have Christmas music all sewn up.
      Sometimes the lights all shining on me, other times I can barely see.
      Lately it occurs to me what a long strange trip it’s been.

          Chris Squire's Swiss Choir is the closest you'll get to a full album of christmas Yes, Run with the Fox is a fun song I always listen to it at this time of year

              I always like the song.

              It's much better than the garbage on the last two studio albums.

                Really nothing interesting on those albums?

                  Run with the Fox is one of those lost Christmas originals, which only the hardcore fans even know exists. I think it got a little bit of airplay when it was released, but it never got the traction that some other classic rock bands achieved with Christmans tunes, such as ELP, The Eagles, Springsteen, John Lennon etc

                  But it's a good tune, mostly because of the bass - Squire put it so high in the mix, no surprise!

                    I like listening to Run With The Fox at this time of year. Also Chris Squire's Swiss Choir.

                      It’s one of my favorite Christmas songs. I don’t know how this happened, but I heard it played in Chili’s two days ago. Merry Christmas!

                        I had forgotten (already) that there is a version of Run With the Fox with Jon Davison on vocals. It came up today on a Spotify prog christmas playlist. It was good, but I think the original version is a little more powerful, instrumentally.

                            There’s also an excellent version by I Am the Manic Whale. Of course, nothing tops the original, but it’s very good.

                              Great album that I played quite a bit as well.
