Frank’s birthday was December 12th. There are 12 tracks on A Jolly Christmas from Frank Sinatra — his first Christmas album, released by Capitol Records in 1957. We’ll bring them your way in order, between now and December 24.
Track #3, “Mistletoe and Holly,” was written specifically for this album by Frank Sinatra, Dok Stanford and Hank Sanicola.
Upbeat and evocative, it quickly evolved into a holiday favorite.
“Fancy ties an’ granny’s pies
An’ folks stealin’ a kiss or two
As they whisper, ‘Merry Christmas’ to you.”
