Successful recordings in 1937 were by Ray Noble (vocal by Howard Phillips), Billie Holiday, Red Norvo, and Glen Gray (vocal by Kenny Sargent).[1]

Les Brown's instrumental version, arranged by Skip Martin and recorded in 1946 as Columbia #38324, became a million-seller and Billboard top ten song in 1949.[2] That same year vocal group The Mills Brothers also had a chart hit with their version on Decca #24550.[3]

Although not strictly a Christmas song as the lyrics make no mention of the holiday, it has been recorded for many artists' Christmas albums and is a standard part of the holiday song repertoire in the U.S. Artists such as Bette Midler, Dean Martin, Dinah Washington, Doris Day, Ella Fitzgerald, Rod Stewart and Rosemary Clooney are among those who have covered it.[4]
