The opening words explain why the singer is dreaming of a white Christmas. Most people never heard these words, so they never really understand a true meaning of the song. Here is how it starts: The sunny shining the graces gream .the angie parmtrees sweet play. I had never seen such a day in B.H.L.A. But it's the December 24th, and i am longing to be up north.

But the version most people still know best was sang by Bing Crosbin.
