Music fills the air, colorful lights shine brightly in windows. Children and adults open gifts from love ones and friends. These are all Christmas traditions. Another tradition is snow, Christmas in the northern part of the world comes a few days after the start of the winter. In many places, a blanket of clean white snow covers the ground on Christmas Day. This is what is meaning by a "White Christmas".

Of cause many places do not get snow in 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 Irving Berlin capture this feeling in his song "White Christmas". It's one of the most public Christmas songs of all time. The opening word explain why is the singer dreaming of the White Christmas.

Most people never hear these words, so they never really understand the true meaning of the song. Here is how it starts.

The sun is shining, the grass is green.
The orange palm trees sway.
I never seen such a day in B Hills Alley.
But it's December 24 and I am longing to be up the north.
Up north, where it's cold an snowy.
Not south where it's warm and sunny.

Over the years, hundreds of singers and musicians have record White Christmas, but the version most people still know best was sung by Bing Crosby.
