"Mistletoe and Holly"

"Mistletoe and Holly" was written by Frank Sinatra and cronies Hank Sanicola (with whom Sinatra wrote the beautiful "This Love of Mine") and Doc Stanford. It was recorded for the 1957 album A Jolly Christmas with Frank Sinatra. Here it is used as the opening number for the 1957 Christmas special of "The Frank Sinatra Show":

"Well, Merry Christmas ladies and gentlemen, and welcome to our Christmas show, from Bulova, the gift of a lifetime, and Chesterfield, my cigarette." - Frank Sinatra
