25 Days of Holiday Music: Day 14

Are you tired of Santa songs yet? No? That's good, because I have another one today! And we're going back to Rosemary Clooney in the 50s for this one.

Well, sort of.

Today's song, "(Let's Give) A Christmas Present to Santa Claus" was recorded in the early 50s, and it was likely released as a single during that time (or at least played on the radio). It did not, however, appear on an album until 1997's Songs from White Christmas (& Other Yuletide Favorites) which collected 12 Clooney Christmas classics, all recorded between 1951 and 1956 (including a duet with Gene Autry, "The Night Before Christmas Song"). This same collection was later re-released as The Night Before Christmas (2009), but with a different track listing.
