The following text is from the back cover of the album:
The wondrous enchantment of Christmas and the festive holiday season has been
told in many ways and in many languages down through the ages. From the moving
biblical stories to the immortal lines of Dickens' Christmas Carol, we have come
to know and understand the true meaning of this most revered day.
However, our feelings as Americans towards Christmas in other than a
religious vein, have been been told by Tin Pan Alley and the present day song
writers. In their words and melodies they have truly captured the thoughts of
children and adults during the Christmas season.
They have depicted the sheer excitement of children when they know Santa will
soon be on his way - their angelic faces and well mannered behavior - the
anticipation of shiny new toys and a stocking crammed with delicacies. Their
music has expressed our warm feelings of brotherhood, and our heartfelt desire
for good will among men. The longing thoughts that stem from Christmas spent
away from loved ones to the crackling spirits of a bright fireplace, and the
sparkling freshness of a newly fallen snow have found their way from their pens
to our hearts and imaginations.
In this musical greeting from Lawrence Welk, he and his Champagne Music
Makers have chosen a group of selections that are wholly representative of the
American Christmas spirit. Whether you spend Christmas in the sunny climates of
Southern California and Florida, or in the snow covered countrysides of Maine
and Minnesota, Lawrence Welk extends to you best wishes for a Merry Christmas
and a happy holiday season.
