Winter wonderland

  • It is written by a musician and a song writer Felix Bernard and Richard Smith in 1934. It has been recorded by great artists like Tony Bennett, Bing Crosby, Jhonny Mathis. Dolly Parton and Frank Sinatra to name a few. Smiths inspiration in writing the song the place outside the home where he grew up was all covered with snow and the park where he usually goes, Honesdale Central Park. He wrote the song from the Sanitarium where he was being treated for tuberculosis.


Due to its holiday theme, the song "Winter Wonderland" is regarded as the Christmas song, although you cannot see any mention of the holiday in the lyrics of the song. The sleigh bells however was mentioned many times referring to the Christmas holidays


The bridge of the song has the following lyrics:

"In the meadow we can build a snowman,
then pretend that he is Parson Brown.
He'll say 'Are You Married?' We'll say 'No man,
but you can do the job when you're in town!"

Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer had a very shiny nose…. was created as a story then later on becomes a song in 1939 by Robert L. May, an employee of Montgomery ward. The storyline is owned by The Rudolph company, L. P. and has been sold in numerous forms like television and commercials. A man named Johnny Marks decided to make it into a song and first sung commercially by Harry Brannon.

Rudolph became popular and became a Christmas folklore. The song depicts the tale of Santa Claus lead reindeer who has the power to see and illuminate through the dark lights because of his bright red nose.

Joy to the World -- Joy to the world, the Lord has come……it is a well known Christmas carol and the words are made by Isaac Watts, but the music was arranged and adapted by Lowell Mason (but was believed to came from the “Messiah” which is the work of Handel). This song was suppose to celebrate the second coming of the Lord, although the lyrics of the song has nothing to say about Christmas, it clearly states the coming of the Lord. The song has been recorded and modified a lot of times by the conductor Percy Boney in the album The 20 Greatest Christmas songs. John Rutter arranged the carol in the tradition of Handel. Then the Cambridge Sisters recorded it. The Kings Sisters introduced a new a cappella version of the song into their repertoire in 2008, arranged by their current first baritone Philip Lawson. Michael Bolton and Mariah Carey have a version of this song too.

The 12 Days of Christmas - Thought we might forget this one, didn't you? Not a chance. On the first day of Christmas….who can ever forget this song. This song is said to be French in origin but it was said to be first published in England. The song tells the twelve gifts to be received on the twelve days of Christmas. Its verse is built on the previous verse in which the twelve gifts are twelve Drummers Drumming, eleven Pipers Piping, Ten Lords a Leaping, Nine Ladies Dancing, Eight Maids a Milking, Seven Swans a Swimming, Six Geese a Laying, Five Golden Rings, Four Calling Birds, thee French Hens, Two Turtle Doves, and a Partridge in a Pear Tree.

Although I'm not a Christian, members of my family were influenced by our sponsors and so adopted Christmas as an American holiday. We do just about everything every other American does with the exception of going to church. Thank you for sharing the origins of these Christmas classics Maita.

About two days ago when I went out to buy something from the store, I noticed that the way the wind blows and how I felt it on my skin make it seem that it is already Christmas. In fact I even wondered when I would be hearing those Christmas carols. Perhaps I should already be preparing coins for the kiddy carolers singing "Ang Pasko ay Sumapit".
