Walking in a Winter Wonderland - Merry Christmas Carol Countdown



The world may look like a lovely winter wonderland indeed, if fresh-fallen snow adorns streets and sidewalks. A white Christmas seems to be the stuff of childhood memories, with snowball fights, sleigh rides, and snowman construction drawing everyone outdoors.

Here’s a Christmas song standard, recorded by Macy Gray.

At least 150 recording artists (from Bing Crosby to Billy Idol, from Ella Fitzgerald to Elvis Presley, and from Johnny Mathis to The Jonas Brothers) have produced covers of the 1934 hit, with words by Richard B. Smith and a tune by Felix Barnard.

OK, “Walking in a Winter Wonderland” is not technically about Christmas, but the tune has taken its place on holiday playlists for 80 years.

Crunch! Crunch! What’s that sound? It’s Christmas celebrants, walking out there in that winter wonderland. (Now, if we’d only see some snow)
