On Christmas Eve, I watched CBS Sunday Morning as I am wont to do. The last story was about “White Christmas”. The story was nice and all, although I pretty much knew most of the facts about how the song came to be such a hit.
The best part was after the story, when Charles Osgood himself sat at a grand piano and sang the holiday song. It was such a surprise, but it was a nice start to the special day. It’s not something you’re likely to see on other news shows, and is part of why I keep watching CBS Sunday Morning.
