This is Steven Ember withe the VOA special English holiday program.
Music fills the air , colorful lights shine brightly in windows. Children and adults open gifts from loved ones and friends.These are all christmas traditions. Another tradition is snow. Christmas in the nortern part of the world consists a few days after the start of winter. In many places a blank of clean white snow covers the ground on Christmas day.This is what is meant by as white chrismas. Of course, many places do not get snow with christmas, in fact they maybe very warm in this time of the year. People who likes snow but live where it is warm can only dream of having a white christmas. American song writer C.Berling captures 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 white christmas. Many people never hear these words, so they never really understand the ture meaning of the song. Here it starts: the sun is shining, grasses is green, the pumptree is sweigh. I've never seen such a day in B.H. But it is december 24th and I am longing to up north, up north where it was cold and snowy, not south where is warm and sunny. Over the years, hundreds of singers and musicians have called it white christmas. But the version most people still know best was sang by Bing Crosby.~~
Song writer Berling was born in Russia in 1888.He did not celebrate Christmas as a religious holiday. He was Jewish.But his song celebrates an idea of peace and happiness than anyone anywhere snowy or not can enjoy it. To all of you, best wishes this holiday season from all of us in VOA special English.
