On the fifth day of a Tony Bennett Christmas, Thursday, December 18, 2014, Tony Bennett sings “Deck The Halls.”
“Deck The Halls” is a traditional Christmas song. The tune is Welsh and dates back to the sixteenth century and is from a winter song called “Nos Galan.” The English lyrics were written in 1862 by a Scottish musician names Thomas Oliphant. The “fa-la-la-la” comes from the original Welsh song, however.
Tony Bennett recorded “Deck The Halls” with The London Symphony Orchestra and Chorus.
