Dtm,
Which seasonal song? I did exactly the same thing. I wrote a local historic song based around the tune and first verse of a well-known carol, only to find Mike Waterson had done precisely the same thing 50 years ago. Not exactly the same words of course, but using the same template and basing it on the same event.
