Some might remember Burl Ives for the various roles he played on film or television or for the various albums he recorded over the decades of which there were many (eight albums in 1963 alone!), but to this day, his most famous works are those relating to Christmas whether it be his songs or voicing the snowman in Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer T.V. special. His voice is one of the most unique to ever grace the world and when his music hits the ears of those listening, it is readily apparent just who it is that is singing. One simply cannot have Christmas without Burl Ives as evidenced by his output over the years. No matter if it is more popular fare like White Christmas, lesser known tracks like Grandfather Kringle or his most popular Christmas anthem Holly Jolly Christmas, Burl Ives makes Christmas feel exactly like it should and more than likely, will continue to do so until for as long as Christmas exists.
