My homework
This is Steve Ember with the VOA special English holiday programme .Music fills the air colourful lights shine brightly at windows . Children and adults open gifts from loved ones and friends . These are all Christmas traditions . Aother tradition is snow . Christmast in the northern part of the world comes a few days after the start of winter . In many of places , a blanket of clean white snow covers the ground on Christmas day . This is what is meant by a white Christmas . Of course , many places do not get snowy at Christmas. In fact they may be very warm this time of year . People who like snow but live where it is warm can only dream of having a white Christmas .American song writer Evring Berlin captured these feelings in his song White Christmas .It is one of the most popular Christmas songs of all time . The opening words explain why the singer is dreaming of a white Chris.Most people never hear their words so they never really understand the true meaning of the song . Here is how it starts* . The sun is shining ; The grass is growing ; The orange palm is swaying.

I've never seen such a day in Beverly Hills LA,but it is December 24. and I am longing to be up north , upnorth where it is cold and snowy not south where is warm and sunny . Over the years , hundreds of singers and musicians ever recorded white Christmas , but the version most people still know best was some by Bing Crosby .
Song writer EB was born in Russion in 1888.He did not celebrate Christmas as religious holiday . He was Jewish but his song celebrates the idea of peace and happiness that anyone anywhere snowy or not can enjoy .To all of you best wishes this holiday season from all of us in VOA special English. This is Steve Ember.
