Written by Irving Berlin, and performed beautifully in the 1954 movie of the same name.
THanks Stella. The song, and the movie, are holiday favorites of mine.
One of my Christmas time fantasies is to be able to spend a day, and an evening wandering through a small New England town from post war America, all decorated for the holidays, and of course, snow covered. To see the lights at night, the families together.
I would like just a few hours to see the sights from the time and the world of this movie.

It is a fun movie to watch, and one of our favorites too! Another oldie that my daughter particularly likes is Christmas in Connecticut. Silly, and fun.

I have always loved old movies. Here I thiught I could find them on tv, what with over 100 channels and all, but it isnt so easy. My kiddo enjoys the musicals like me so if I find the whole movie its going in the dvr!
I finally bought dvd’s of our favorites.
If nothing else, YouTube and Amazon have it for rent at $2.99. Amazon has the HD version at $3.99.
ADD: If you are a Prime member, Amazon has a number of Christmas movies included with your Prime membership.
Thats my last resort. I should go dig around at walmart and see if they have cheap copies. I liked Danny Kaye as a kid too. Goofy and fun.
Do you have a GameStop (or similar) store in your area? They usually have good prices on used DVD’s.
Gamestop, yes, ill check there too, thx Stella.
This is the first version of White Christmas in the movie.
Now I’m crying.
Every year before Christmas my mama would get out the old albums. Bing Crosby and Dean Martin first of all. Then we would have Rudolph by Gene Autry and Frosty the Snowman by Jimmy Durante. Then on to those she considered totally second tier, like Perry Como.
I have added a few favorites of my own to the list of Christmas music I learned to love as a child, but none are as well loved as my old favorites.
So many fine songs in this movie – Count Your Blessings.
YouTube has the interview with Rosemary Clooney about the making of the movie, the stars, and Irving Berlin.
