"White Christmas" has sad story

   Bing Crosby's "White Christmas" is probably the most popular Christmas song of all time, but did you know it was written by Irving Berlin, a Jewish man who never celebrated Christmas.

   He wrote it just after the bombing of Pearl Harbor, dreaming of better times in America. As for he and his wife, they went to the cemetery every December 25, to visit the grave of the 3 week old son they lost on Christmas Day.
