The Christmas Song (Merry Christmas to You)

Today we are doing something different. Since I didn’t finish today’s post, I am doing a Christmas Carol instead.

Today’s Christmas Carol has two different names, but most people don’t recognize them by it. It is known as The Christmas Song (Merry Christmas to You) or The Christmas Song (Chestnuts Roasting on an Open Fire). This song was written in 1945 by Bob Wells and Mel Tomé as they were trying to stay cool on a hot summer day.

It is one of the best Christmas Carols, my absolute favorite singer being Bing Crosby.
