This is one of my all-time FAVORITE Christmas songs, and I am tickled pink that I was able to find a link to the Dick Haymes version, which is the first version I ever heard of this song. I have found wonderful covers of it by Frank Sinatra and Harry Connick, Jr., but this one remains my favorite.
Dick Haymes was a big band singer and actor, also working in radio during the 1940's and 1950's. I remember seeing him in the 1945 version of the musical "State Fair". His voice was perfectly suited for this song; it is pretty darned dreamy, if you ask me.
A little secret: I have always wanted to dance to this song with someone special. A perfect Christmas slow dance by the Christmas tree. I hope you enjoy this song as much as I do.
