Blog Caroling 2018 – White Christmas

footnoteMaven has posted the reminder for Blog Caroling 2018, so it’s time to share one of my favorites – which happens to be the best selling Christmas song of all time – White Christmas by Irving Berlin.
Of course, the original version was sung by another favorite of mine – Bing Crosby – in 1942 during World War II.
This year, I discovered a new version of the song from a 1957 Christmas special, which I really like. It’s Bing (of course) singing with Frank Sinatra.
As I live in Tucson, we don’t generally have any chance of a white Christmas, but growing up in the East, I loved snow flurries on Christmas Eve as long as I didn’t have to shovel the sidewalk the next morning. 🙂

Dad and Me, 1952
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
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,
Just like the ones I used to know
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

May your days be merry and bright
And may all your Christmases be white
And may all your Christmases be white (all your Christmases be white)
And may all your Christmases be white (all your Christmases be white)
And may all your Christmases be
(All your Christmases be white)
(All your Christmases be white)
