“It’s Beginning to Look A Lot Like Christmas” by Bing Crosby

This is a carol I like by many different artists. I chose Bing’s version because I really like the wistful, sweet way he sings the last line–“Sure, it’s Christmas once more!” I haven’t really heard anyone else add that little line at the end.

I also like that this song takes me back to a time and place that I never actually experienced, but that somehow feels familiar–five-and-dime stores, trees in grand hotels, children caroling in the snow, department stores stocking up on toys. Today’s world really doesn’t afford these experiences any longer. And yet, they still represent a Christmas we all understand.
