Many times, many ways...

This concludes a Monday feature on Christmas songs. 

Legend has it this song was written during a sweltering summer.

Bob Wells wanted to cool off. Mel Torme saw the opening lines scratched on a sheet of paper. Quietly came "The Christmas Song."

Let's not let the facts get in the way of a good story, so we'll go with it.

This is my favorite Christmas song. Always has, always will.

Everybody knows (no pun intended) the 1961 version. Here is the version Nat Cole recorded with his trio in 1946.

Such a song to savor, huh?

Here we are, the holidays upon us, holy cow.

We'll talk again, but just in case:

Although it's been said, many times, many ways, Merry Christmas to you...
