It's Beginning to Look a Lot Like Christmas

By Mitchell

And after a half-foot of snow this weekend, it certainly looks that way here. So who better to sing about it than Perry Como?

Como's TV Christmas shows were a tradition for 40 years; after his regular series ended in the 60s, his specials often took him to exotic places such as Mexico (1975), Austria (1976), Williamsburg, VA (1978), Israel (1980), Paris (1982) and Dublin (1994). His laid-back smoothness became something of an affectionate joke (SCTV's Perry Como: Still Alive), but there was no joke when it came to the talent of the barber from Milwaukee.

Here he is singing "It's Beginning to Look a Lot Like Christmas" from his Christmas show in 1958.
