I’ll be home for Christmas
You can plan on me
Please have snow and mistletoe
And presents on the tree
“I’ll Be Home for Christmas” is a Christmas perennial written by the lyricist Kim Gannon and composer Walter Kent and recorded in 1943 by Bing Crosby, who scored a top ten hit with the song. The song is sung from the point of view of a soldier stationed overseas during World War II, writing a letter to his family. In the message, he tells the family he will be coming home and to prepare the holiday for him.
So, with that little intro, I want to wish everyone a very merry Christmas and hope that you are all home with your family and friends, enjoying delicious nibbles and a glass of bubbly in front of a roaring fire.
