"Oh, the weather outside is frightful…"

Man, this brings me back to my youth, and the Christmas records that my father used to play on our big wooden HiFi in the living room.    (Anyone remember the Firestone Christmas albums?  I imagine for countless Americans, THAT was the sound of Christmas in the ’60s.)  Our  house would be filled with the sounds of the Ray Coniff Singers, Vic Damone, Julie Andrews, Andy Williams and Maurice Chevalier, whose saucy rendition of “Jolly Old St. Nicholas” has never been matched.

Anyway: another Christmas classic, this time a medley (c. 1965?) from Ray Coniff.
