GeneaBloggers ~ Blog Caroling!



Footnote Maven challenges us GeneaBloggers:


I challenge each of you to blog your favorite Christmas Carol - Blog Caroling. We'll all sing along! You can view the first year's A Choir Of GeneAngels, and Do You Hear What I Hear.


I believe this is the third year of fM's caroling and this is be my second year participating. One thing I can not do is sing. I am so excited about participating however in this caroling event! I just pray all of the other Genea-Bloggers drown me out a bit. If I get to loud and out of tune, please let me know!


I have chosen one of my favorite songs, White Christmas, to add to our caroling this year. I think I loved this song so much as I was growing up because that is exactly what I did, dream of a white Christmas, I had never seen one where I am from in sunny California. White Christmas originally was sung by Bing Crosby, and that is my favorite edition. I grew up listening to him sing this every year. The music and lyrics were written by Irving Berlin in 1942.  It was originally featured in the movie Holiday Inn which I just so happened to watch last night. So here we go!


                                                                     White Christmas
                                                    

I'm dreaming of a white Christmas
Just like the ones I used to know
Where the treetops glisten,
and children listen
To hear sleigh bells in the snow

I'm dreaming of a white Christmas
With every Christmas card I write
May your days be merry and bright
And may all your Christmases be white

I'm dreaming of a white Christmas
With every Christmas card I write
May your days be merry and bright
And may all your Christmases be white

Thanks for stopping by! 

Wishing you success in all of your genealogical treasure hunts!

  1. Our family just started watching this movie last night, too! It's also one of my favorites. I spent my high school years in FL, but my early and some middle school years were spent in MI and OH(in that order!). I knew what "snow days" were all about, so it made it worse! Now I live in South GA, which is a lot like FL. Long story to say I still feel like it should be snowing after
    Thanksgiving! There's nothing like a white Christmas!

  2. I remember a Bing Crosby Holiday album as a Christmas favorite while I was growing up.

  3. Hi CJ, You are lucky to have enjoyed a white Christmas and then be able to choose where you leave and whether you will have them again!

    Hi Lindalee, Bing Crosby had a great voice, his Christmas songs had me hooked.
