White Christmas

This is my favorite Christmas song!!! I just think this song really brings out the mood and spirit of Christmas~~ The version I used here was sang by Bing Crosby.

 

The following is a short story I found on the Internet about this song:

 

The song White Christmas is undoubtedly the most famous and popular of all the 
Christmas songs. The music and lyrics for White Christmas were written by Irving Berlin in 1942 and originally featured in the movie Holiday Inn starring Bing Crosby. The lyrics of White Christmas struck a chord with the soldiers fighting in the Second World War and their families who were waiting for them back home. The song and recording of White Christmas by Bing Crosby with John Scott Trotter's orchestra and the Ken Darby Singers was so popular that it was later reprised in the movie called after its name - White Christmas. The film White Christmas once again starred Bing Crosby together with Danny Kaye, Rosemary Clooney and Vera-Ellen. The costumes of red velvet and white fur worn in the film charmed cinema goers everywhere and these together with the wonderful lyrics of White Christmas has ensured its continuing popularity to this day.

 

White Christmas

I'm dreaming of a white Christmas 
Just like the ones I used to know 
Where the treetops glisten, 
and children listen 
To hear sleigh bells in the snow

 

I'm dreaming of a white Christmas 
With every Christmas card I write 
May your days be merry and bright 
And may all your Christmases be white 

I'm dreaming of a white Christmas 
With every Christmas card I write 
May your days be merry and bright 
And may all your Christmases be white
