This 1963 pop standard was released by Andy Williams for his first Christmas record and is a celebration and description of the many and varied activities associated with the holiday season. It focuses on friends and family, spending time with loved ones, sledding for children, and kissing under the mistletoe. A dynamic, jazz waltz setting by Joel Raney captures the energy and verve deserving of this Christmas sensation. The optional parts for Synth & Percussion enliven the presentation. There are two versions available, a 3-5 oct. Level 3 and a 3-6 oct. Level 4.
