Santa Claus Is Comin’ To Town:

“This was written in 1932 by Haven Gillespie and J. Fred Coots while traveling on the subway to a music publisher’s office. They had trouble convincing anyone to produce it because it was seen as a kids’ song, which would have been very hard to sell. The big break came when Eddie Cantor sang it on his radio show in 1934, and the song became an instant hit.”

      Birgit,
      I found the explanations on a site and thought them so interesting I’d include them. Old Christmas music was my hunt today.

      I also liked the old pictures in that video.

      The last one from 1962 brought back the fears of what would have happened if the Russians had refused to leave. I remember it all.
