Home for Christmas

Home for Christmas

Bing Crosby recorded, “I’ll Be Home for Christmas (If Only in My Dreams)”, in October of 1943. The song was reportedly written to honor soldiers deployed overseas during World War II. The BBC quickly banned the broadcast of the song based on fears that the melancholy theme would negatively impact troop morale. The song reached #3 on the music charts and has since become a Christmas standard.
