"Child of Winter (Christmas Song)" is a Christmas song written by Brian Wilson and Stephen Kalinich (and incorporating in its structure the opening verse from "Here Comes Santa Claus" by Gene Autry and Oakley Haldeman).
The song was recorded by the American rock band The Beach Boys and was released as a single in 1974 backed with "Susie Cincinnati" (and with "Good Vibrations" in some other countries such as France). It was the only Beach Boys single between the albums Holland and 15 Big Ones. It was re-released on their 1998 Christmas album Ultimate Christmas.
