This is Steven Ember with VOA Special English Holiday Program, music fills the air, colourful lights shine brightly and windows. Children and adults open gifts from loved ones and friends. These are all Christmas traditions.

Another tradition is snow. Christmas in the Northern part of the world comes a few day after the start of winter. In many places a blanket clean white snow covers the ground on Christmas Day. This is what meant by a white Christmas. Of course, many places do not get snow with Chritmas. In fact, they may be very warm this time with you. People who like snow but leave where it is warm can only dream having on white Christmas.

American song writter Everbellious capture this feelings in his song white Christmas. It is one of most popular Christmas songs all the time. The opening words explain why the singer is dreaming of a white Christmas. Most people never hear these words, so they never really undertand the ture meaning of the sun. Here is how it starts.

The sun shining
The grass is green
The orange palm trees sway
I never see such day in Berverly Hills LA
But it is Dec 24 and I am longing to the North.
Up North where is cold in snowy.
Not South where is warm and sunny

Over the year hundreds of singers and musicians ever called it white Christmas, but the version most people still know best was song by Bin Crospy.

Song writer Heavy Belling was born in Russian in 1988. He did not celebrate Christmas as religious holiday, he was Jewish. But the song celebrated an idea of peace and happiness that anyone, anyway, snowy or not get enjoy.

To all of you, that wishes this holiday season for all the bus in VOA Special English. This is Steven Ember.
