Every year the Christmas Spirit seems to strike me at some point in time for no particular rhyme or reason. This past week has been so full of activities that were holiday-related that I guess I shouldn’t be surprised it’s struck tonight.
Whatever the reason, I share this video with you of one of my all-time favorites, Nat King Cole, singing “The Christmas Song” written by Mel Torme and Bob Wells on a hot July afternoon in 1945. While the audio of this clip is not the best reproduction, I love being able to actually watch Nat King Cole sing as well as hear his wonderful voice. It brings back many warm, beautiful memories of my childhood. I hope you enjoy it.
