Count Your Blessings (Instead of Sheep) 1954
Written by Irving Berlin

Bing Crosby
May 3, 1903 – October 14, 1977

"Count Your Blessings (Instead of Sheep)" is a popular song written by Irving Berlin and used in the 1954 movie White Christmas. It is commonly performed as a Christmas song, although the lyrics make no reference to the holiday.

The song arose from a personal experience of Berlin when his doctor suggested he try "counting his blessings" as a way to deal with insomnia brought on by stress.

Berlin then incorporated the song to the film White Christmas to advance the relationship between the characters played by Bing Crosby and Rosemary Clooney. The sentimental theme reminds listeners to remember how much they are blessed instead of fretting about short-term problems.
