"Although it's been said many times, many ways, Merry Christmas! Merry Christmas to you!" It was a blazing hot afternoon in California when Robert Wells started scribbling words on paper. He wrote about winter, trying to cool off by thinking of chilly memories. Wells’s friend Mel Torme – a performer with a famous career in jazz – stopped by and saw the phrases. Just forty minutes later, their collaboration looked like a song with possibilities. The two friends headed to Nat King Cole’s home to show him their creation. Cole – a famous jazz pianist and singer – fell in love with the song and agreed to record it. It's been a holiday classic ever since!
