"Step Into Christmas" was released in 1973 and reached #1 on the Billboard Christmas Singles chart. During the instrumental break, Elton's lyricist Bernie Taupin can be seen "hitting" the gongs (actually played by percussionist Ray Cooper), after which Elton holds up his beloved Watford Hornets Football Club membership card.
