Christmas Songs part 5: White Christmas

White Christmas-Bing Crosby

I believe this song once held the record for biggest selling single of all time. For all I know it still does. The fact of the matter is, for me it just isn't Christmas without hearing Bing Crosby sing "White Christmas" It was composed by Irving Berlin back in 1942 for the movie "Holiday Inn", and won an Academy Award for his writing efforts. It was successful enough to inspire a movie called "White Christmas" several years later. Since then, many have tried, but no one has been able to equal the original. Rest in peace, old crooner. We'll be talking more about you in another song.

This song reminds me of the great legend of the candy cane. Each time you need to have an inner rebirth, reflect on the story. I have been alive on 3 different occasions where I became lost and wandering. Believe me, the middle of the highway at midnight is NOT where you want to be when you are suppose to be in confession. Let me know Ishmael! I do have an extra sign up sheet if you need a new one!
