I'll Be Home For Christmas

Origin and History | I'll be Home For Christmas Lyrics | Youtube Video | Music Sheets


With the recent surge of Overseas Foreign Workers (OFW) flocking to 1st world countries these days and the hundreds of soldiers fighting in the Middle East; it wouldn’t be so hard to imagine that this song has sent countless tears down the faces of almost half of the families around the world, after hearing it again and again on the radio or television.

History of Christmas Carol - I'll be Home for Christmas

The song, which was first recorded by Bing Crosby, became famous on 1943 when it was included in the “White Christmas” album and in fact, it skyrocketed to the top of the charts for that entire year. Although the song was originally intended for the soldiers fighting during the World War II, its relevance and sentiment can still be felt by every soldier fighting outside their country, anyone who has lost a love one and like I mentioned earlier, all the Overseas Foreign Workers who are so far away from their families just trying to make ends meet and saving up for a better life for their children.

This is such a meaningful, yet sensitive song for those spouses or children left behind who can relate to every word of its lyrics and who would disagree. It’s never easy to wish that that your loved ones could be with you during Christmas “even if only in your dreams.”

I’ll Be Home For Christmas Lyrics

I'll be home for Christmas;
You can count on me.
Please have snow and mistletoe
And presents on the tree.

Christmas Eve will find me
Where the love-light gleams.
I'll be home for Christmas
If only in my dreams.
