What do you think is the most famous Christmas song in the world? I don’t know the answer, but if White Christmas isn’t the most famous, it is definitely the Christmas song with the most recorded versions: so many that this year’s musical advent calendar will consist of twenty-four different recordings, and I’ll still have to leave some good ones out. If you think that sounds repetitive, just wait. (Plus, don’t tell me you wouldn’t be happy to listen to White Christmas once a day throughout December even if it was always the same version.)
Of course, Bing had to go first or last, and since there’s no surprise if I leave him for Christmas Eve, we get to enjoy him today. Happy Advent!
