White Christmas

White Christmas

Did you know? - "White Christmas" is an Irving Berlin song reminiscing about an old-fashioned Chritsmas setting. The version sung by Bing Crosby is assumed to be the best selling single of all time. "Grab your pen and take down this song. I just wrote the best song I've ever written — hell, I just wrote the best song that anybody's ever written!"

According to the National Climatic Data Center, basing numbers upon 1988-2005 data and stations with at least 25 years of data, the probability of a White Christmas (one inch of snow on the ground) at selected cities is as follows:
