The Little Drummer Boy

Today’s Christmacious song is The Little Drummer Boy, or as it is sometimes known, The Carol Of The Drum. Written in 1941 by Katharine Kennicott Davis and based on a traditional Czech carol, it was first recorded in 1945 by none other than the Trapp Family Singers. It has since been recorded over 220 times in 7 languages.
