"I'll Be Home For Christmas" ęBing Crosby 1942

"Bringing Home the Tree"

I'll Be Home For Christmas
Bing Crosby

Written by Walter Kent, Kim Gannon and Buck Ram

In 1943, "I'll Be Home for Christmas" joined "White Christmas" to become one of America's most popular holiday songs. The recording by Bing Crosby shot to the top ten of the record charts that year and became a holiday musical tradition in the United States. The idea of being home for Christmas originated in WWI when soldiers at first thought that the war would be quick and they would return by Christmastime. This inevitably did not happen, hence the line "if only in my dreams".
