The famous Christmas song Winter Wonderland was first published in 1934. The composer was Felix Bernard (1897-1944) and the lyricist was Richard B. Smith (1901-1935). Probably the most popular versions of this classic Christmas song, Winter Wonderland, were recorded to high acclaim by the Andrews Sisters and Perry Como.
The lyrics of Winter Wonderland have undoubtedly contributed to the magical vision of snow at Christmas together with the tradition of building snowmen and therefore turning fantasy into reality by creating a real Winter Wonderland.
I recall one year in elementary school, we had a "talent" show - not that anyone really had any talent in those years. But some kids took piano lessons or dance lessons so were in their glory. A friend and I wanted to participate and all we could do was sing - we were pretty good for 10-year-olds. So because the show was around Christmas, we decided to sing "Walking in a Winter Wonderland" with some actions along with it. Looking back, I don't think we were that good, but I'm glad we had the courage to get up and do it. I've always loved that song and it reminds me of that day we sang for our classmates and parents.
Where I live, winter is usually rainy rather than snowy, but I think the last time we had snow at Christmas was in 2008 - and it was quite nice. However, we usually pray for sunshine and we are often blessed. Anyway, here's Amy Grant serenading you all with Walking In A Winter Wonderland.
