Christmas Carols

Here's a little Christmas gift from Triogenius to you...
Maybe Tree-o-genius this time...??

                                                ...and presents under the tree....

"Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas"
-1944, Hugh Martin and Ralph Blane, for the movie "Meet Me In St Louis"

By Christina Perry:

"The 12 Days of Christmas"
-This was first published in 1780 and possibly has French origins.

A mixed-up version:

"White Christmas"
-1940, Irving Berlin
This is the best-selling single of all time, selling 50 million copies as sung by Bing Crosby and over 150 million total (and counting)

Here's the version you hear in the movie "Home Alone"  by the Drifters

"Jingle Bell Rock"
-1957, Joseph Beale and James Boothe

"Frosty the Snowman"
-1950, Walter Rollins and Steve Nelson

"Silent Night"
-Lyrics by Joseph Mohr, 1816; Music by Franz Gruber

This was written by Germans. Here is the German version of the first verse:

1. Stille Nacht! Heilige Nacht!
Alles schläft; einsam wacht
Nur das traute heilige Paar.
Holder Knab im lockigten Haar,
Schlafe in himmlischer Ruh!
Schlafe in himmlischer Ruh!

Sung by David Archuleta:

"Sleigh Ride"
-1948, Mitchell Parish and Leroy Anderson

House with synced lights:

"Deck the Halls"
-This was an old Welsh dancing song. The words were added later by John Hughes. It is thought that the "Fa la la la la" part was meant to be filled with words but it never happened.

Pets singing it:


"Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer"
-1949, Walter Rollins and Steve Nelson. They also wrote "Frosty the Snowman."
Punkish version:

"Winter Wonderland"
-1934, Felix Bernard & Richard Smith
With Mickey and Minnie Mouse:

"I'll Be Home For Christmas"
-1943, Kim Gannon and Walter Kent
This song was written from a WWII soldier's point of view'll%20be%20home%20for%20christmas%20soldiers&qs=n&form=QBVR&pq=i'll%20be%20home%20for%20christmas%20soldiers&sc=1-35&sp=-1&sk=#view=detail&mid=A81BA0EB611857CFA74CA81BA0EB611857CFA74C
