2010 Advent Calendar Day 24: White Christmas

According to legend, Irving Berlin originally wrote this song while poolside in Beverly Hills. When you look at the rarely sung opening verse, it’s highly possible that the legend is true:

“The sun is shining, the grass is green,
The orange and palm trees sway.

There’s never been such a day
in Beverly Hills, L.A.
But it’s December the twenty-fourth,
And I am longing to be up North”

Here are four radically different versions of “White Christmas.” Have yourself a merry little Christmas weekend.
