What are the all-time greatest hits of Christmas? What inspired them, who made them famous and why has hearing them every Yuletide season become a best-loved American tradition?

This 10-hour special counts down from Number 100 to Number 1 all of your favorite Yuletide hits. The music includes not just the most timeless hit singles but key tracks from the best-loved (and best-selling) Christmas albums ever made.

Every form of Yuletide evergreen is here, from the goodtime gold (“Holly Jolly Christmas”), the sentimental songs (“I’ll Be Home For Christmas”), and the deeply romantic (“Merry Christmas Darling”) to the beloved carols (“Silent Night”) and the Santa/Rudolph/Frosty fantasy favorites (“Santa Claus is Comin’ to Town”).

Showcasing each song is a brief story behind it. Our host, legendary radio and TV personality Wink Martindale, supplies all the fun facts, augmented by insightful commentary and Yuletide greetings from the hitmaking stars themselves.
