    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.

      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.
