MAR VISTA 2.0

The sun is shining, the grass is green,
The orange and palm trees sway,
There’s never been such a day,
In Beverly Hills, L.A.
But it’s December the twenty-fourth,
And I am longing to be up north.
I’m dreaming of a white Christmas…


Yes, this is the little-known actual intro to the most recorded – arguably the most iconic – of all holiday songs, written by Irving Berlin from the point of view of someone in SoCal longing for an Arctic blast. The wistful version most often heard nowadays, recorded by Bing Crosby in 1947, doesn’t include mention of tropical foliage, but many artists since have chosen to honor Berlin’s original lyrics.

Fittingly, a full version of “White Christmas” by The Carpenters kicks off our holiday playlist: Performed by some of our favorite musical acts, these tunes will set the mood for any festive celebration. Warmest wishes for the best holiday season yet!
