9 Days Left Until Christmas
At the North Pole:
One thing the North Pole gets all the time is letters from kids. The North Pole has a mail processing center where they receive all the letters and e-mails from children all around the world. The letters and e-mails are read and then the child’s wishes are entered into a computer database so the elves at the toy making plant will know what the child wants for Christmas.
I’ll Be Home for Christmas was written by American lyricist Kim Gannon, and the Jewish-American composer Walter Kent. Buck Ram, who previously wrote a poem and song with the same title, was credited as a co-writer of the song following a lawsuit. The song was first recorded in 1943 by Bing Crosby who scored a top ten hit with the song. This Christmas song has since gone on to become a Christmas standard. I liked the version from Rascal Flatts the best!
