Dreaming of Snow

I haven’t posted this in a while (not since 2015, to be exact), and I’d forgotten how cute the cartoon is. The animation was done by cartoonist Joshua Held back in 2002. The song was performed by The Drifters on their 1954 Christmas album.

Here’s an interesting note about this version:

“We wanted to do something different with ‘White Christmas’,” Bill Pinkney said in his autobiography, Drifters 1. “We did it in a ballad-with-a-beat version that became a big hit. Atlantic [Records] wondered what composer Irving Berlin would think. He surprised everyone when he gave our version his blessings. He really liked it and he contacted Atlantic with a letter of congratulations.”

For a more extensive history of the song please see my 2018 post.
