This was a favorite Christmas song during my childhood (still is). I was listening to this song on my stereo Christmas Eve when I heard my allegedly asleep little sisters, then about 5 and 7 years old, in their shared bedroom next door whispering that they heard bells. After a few minutes of intense discussion, they deduced that it was because Santa had landed on the roof. The beginning of this song has bells in it. My sisters swore they heard the bells from Santa’s sleigh at the same time I was listening to it. Coincidence? To this day, I still like to think not.
