    "The Christmas Song" (commonly subtitled "Chestnuts Roasting on an Open Fire") was written in 1944 by Mel Tormé and Bob Wells.

    According to Tormé, the song was written during a blistering hot summer. In an effort to "stay cool by thinking cool", the most-performed Christmas song was born!
    "I saw a spiral pad on his piano with four lines written in pencil", Tormé recalled. "They started, "Chestnuts roasting..., Jack Frost nipping..., Yuletide carols..., Folks dressed up like Eskimos.' Bob didn't think he was writing a song lyric. He said he thought if he could immerse himself in winter he could cool off. Forty minutes later that song was written!”

    The song’s been made popular by Nat King Cole, who actually recorded it no less than four times during his career.

    We hope you’ll enjoy listening to our version... And if you really like it, you can download it for FREE until the 25th!

    “Although it’s been said,
    Many times, many ways,
    Merry Christmas to you...”
