WHITE CHRISTMAS

This is one of the most famous and popular Christmas songs. 
It was written by Irving Berlin in 1942.

White Christmas by Bing Crosby (1947)
  
I'm dreaming of a white Christmas                I'm dreaming of a white Christmas
Just like the ones I used to know                    With every Christmas card I write
Where the treetops glisten                               May your days be merry and bright
and children listen                                           And may all your Christmases be white
To hear sleigh bells in the snow 

Christmas cartoon - Sung by The Drifters (1954)
White Christmas by Human Nature  (2013) 
White Christmas Karaoke
A White Christmas means that at least 2.5 centimetres of snow have fallen on Christmas Morning. This is more common in some countries than in others. For example, in the United Kingdom there are not a lot of White Christmases but in Canada there is almost always a White Christmas.

RUDOLPH THE RED-NOSED REINDEER

Father Christmas has nine reindeer.  Their names are Dasher, Dancer, Prancer, Vixen, Comet, Cupid, Donder, Blitzen and Rudolph. They are all very special but Rudolph is extra special- he has a shiny red nose! The other reindeer laugh at Rudolph.
