John:  So, Steph, who’s your favorite Christmas singer.

Steph:  Well, you know, there are so many people who sing Christmas songs, but I have to say, when it comes to Christmas songs the traditional way, it’s Bing Crosby.

John:  I’ve heard of Bing Crosby, but I couldn’t name any of his songs.

Steph:  Well, he sings, ya know, the White Christmas song. You know that song, don’t you?

John:  No. How does that go?

Steph:  It goes, ‘I’m dreaming of a white Christmas.’

John:  Oh, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah. What else does he sing?

Steph:  Well, he sings, um, Here Comes Santa Claus.

John:  Oh, really?

Steph:  Yeah. You’re not gonna ask me how that goes, right?

John:  No, I know that one. What else?

Steph:  He has so many records and CDs out. I think that if you heard his voice, you would totally recognize it. And you would say, ‘oh, that’s who Bing Crosby is.’

John:  I’m sure. I’ll have to go pick up one of his CDs.

Steph:  Definitely. When you’re, when you’re at your folks’ house for Christmas, check it out and see if they have any Bing Crosby CDs or records.

John:  They probably have some old records I can stick on.

Steph:  I bet they do. And it’s really cool if you’re having a holiday party to put on a little *Bing.
