The song is a celebration and description of activities associated with the Christmas season, focusing primarily on get-togethers between friends and families. In a 2005 interview, Williams discusses how The Andy Williams Show figured into his recording of "It's the Most Wonderful Time of the Year": "George Wyle, who is a vocal director, who wrote all of the choir stuff and all of the duets and trios and things that I did with all the guests, he wrote a song just for the show – I think the second Christmas show we did – called "Most Wonderful Time of the Year". So I did that, you know, every Christmas, and then other people started doing it. And then suddenly it's become – not suddenly but over 30 years – it's become a big standard. I think it's one of the top 10 Christmas songs of all time now."

Yay! Love the Christmas songs!! :D was hoping someone was going to put out some holiday tunes.... Just curious though... are you gunna be doing any more Christmas songs? Is there any way you could possibly do one Christmas song in particular...? "I Want a Hipp" or whatever that song is called? :D Love that song so much. It's me and my dad's favorite Christmas song... would just tickle him silly to watch me play that song on RB, lmao. :)

Think it's a reference to A Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens

well charted drums thanks!

Downloaded his last year, but didn't play it until today. Great track.

But...there's a section towards the end (after the long instrumental break) where the lyrics are missing for a couple of measures. The vocal line is there, but no words.
