Perry Como 1969 Christmas Special

Christmas Specials & Holiday TV Shows
 After years of The Hollywood Palace Christmas episodes hosted by Bing Crosby it was Perry Como who had the honor on the December 20, 1969 broadcast.

The crooner opens with a medley that includes I'll Be Home For the Holidays and Love in a Home from Li'l Abner. Is the group behind him The New Christy Minstrels? I believe so...

In this beautiful segment Como croons my favorite carols, those about the birth of Jesus like The First Noel and Hark the Herald Angels Sing.
