Here’s wishing you a white Christmas.

The biggest selling Christmas song of all time is White Christmas. This rendition of White Christmas was recorded by Clyde McPhatter and the Drifters in 1953. When this song was first recorded the label stated Clyde McPhatter and, in tiny print,  the Drifters.   It was #2 on the charts in 1954.  Animation for this is by Joshua Held in 2002. Please enjoy this classic as my gift to you:

White Christmas was written by Irving Berlin for the Movie “Holiday Inn” and recorded by Bing Crosby in 1942, and received the Academy Award in that year.  Crosby recorded it again in 1947, and that recording has become the standard.  It was also featured in the 1954 movie White Christmas with Bing Crosby, Danny Kaye, Rosemary Clooney, and Vera-Ellen.
