"Christmas in Fallujah" is a single written by Billy Joel and performed by Cass Dillon. The single was released on December 4, 2007 exclusively from the iTunes Store and is included on Dillon's album A Good Thing Never Dies. The proceeds from this single were donated to Homes for Our Troops, a nonprofit organization that builds specially adapted homes for American service members returning from Iraq (Fallujah is a city in Iraq) and Afghanistan with severe disabilities.
"Christmas in Fallujah" was the second single released in 2007 by Joel, who had not released a song with lyrics since 1993. Joel began performing "Christmas in Fallujah" live in Australia in November 2008—marking the first time he sang the lyrics to the song instead of Dillon. On December 11, 2008, Joel announced that a new recording of the song that day at Sydney's Acer Arena concert would be released as a download and CD single in honor of the US and Australian soldiers serving in the Middle East. This is the only official recording of Joel singing "Christmas in Fallujah" that is available.
