In case you are new here, I am on day three of 25 days and 25 different performances of the Christmas song, “O Holy Night”. For those that are not new here, please pardon my repetitive opening throughout the course of these 25 days.
Two of my sisters and I love the song “O Holy Night”. After a series of emails with one of my sisters, I came up with the idea of sharing different versions/performances of the song “O Holy Night”.
Welcome to version number three.
Today’s version comes from a snowman, rather the man behind the snowman.
Raise your hand if you have seen the children’s Christmas classic, “Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer”. Raise your hand, GG – I know you’ve seen it.
You may recall the narrator of “Rudolph the Red Nose Reindeer” was Sam the Snowman. But do you recall… the most famous reindeer of all… Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer had a –
Sorry, I got a little carried away. To continue, Sam the Snowman’s voice was the actor/singer, Burl Ives. Some of you may remember Burl Ives as the Luzianne Tea man. “Luzianne tea, the one tea that’s always clear as a bell.” ‘Ting!’
If you happen to catch “Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer” during this holiday season, I hope you’ll think about Sam the Snowman singing ‘O Holy Night’. Now, without further ado … I present Burl Ives’ performance of ‘O Holy Night’.

Another great pick. I loved Burl Ives singing “Rudolf” and I loved him in the movie “Summer Magic” singing “The Ugly Bug Ball”…delightful man.
Thanks, Georgette. I miss Burl Ives. He was such a jolly man. He made the perfect Sam the Snowman, don’t ya think?
I am passing along the Liebster Award to you. I have created a permanent page for this award. Please reference the link for the rules.
Thank you, Ari. I’m grateful for the nod. Congrats to you for snagging the award!
Burl Ives is so great. I hope he wasn’t some monster in real life, because he seems like he’s who you’d hope to have as your neighbor.
Now that you mention it, Byronic – I am glad Burl died before the age of Twitter, Facebook and the growing span of internet. Ignorance is bliss. Like you, I always thought of Burl Ives as being a great neighbor. I even thought he’d be an awesome Grandpa.
Thanks for visiting my neighborhood. I hope you’ll return to hear other performers sing/play.
Yep, this is one that gets a big star from me, Lenore.
These songs are bringing back memories of when I was a kid. My Mom played Christmas music all night on Christmas eve and all day on Christmas day. Album, after album, after album. I am glad you liked this one.
I haven’t heard his version. Will have to check it out (after the football game).
Which football game, Patti? UGA lost to LSU, not that I keep up with football. Hope your team won! Hope you came back to hear the song! 🙂
I hope you were able to make it back and give the song a listen, Patti. Hope your team won, too!
Raising my hand! Watched and loved it every year!
Beautiful version, and I, too, would have loved to have Burl as a Gramps.
I love that you are going through all these versions, AA. You have super good taste!
