Kay Thompson's Jingle Bells

Happy Birthday Andy Williams.

Here are the Williams Brothers doing a holiday medley with the Osmond Brothers
(in what may be the whitest Christmas ever).

After Andy Williams passed on earlier this year, I wanted to pay tribute by starting off my 2012 Christmas mix with one of his songs. I grew up with the 1963 Andy Williams Christmas album, which has become omnipresent over the past 50 years.

You can't enter a store during the month of December without hearing "It's the Holiday Season" or "It's The Most Wonderful Time Of The Year" at least a dozen times, but my favorite songs off the record were always "A Song For The Christmas Tree" (his version of "12 Days Of Christmas") and "Kay Thompson's Jingle Bells" (which should be called "Andy Williams' Jingle Bells").
