  1. Met Bing in 1952 when he stayed in the hotel where I worked in Dundee, Scotland. Absolute Gentleman

  2. This song stops me in my tracks no matter where I am and transports me back to my Nan’s house making Christmas decorations, laughing at silly things and love, lots and lots of love. This was her favourite Christmas Carol and also mine. No-one sings it like Bing.
