“White Christmas” Revisited: Field Trip Reflections, A Holiday Message From Heather French Henry, And A Look Back At This Beloved Christmas Classic

About this episode


Candy & Ashley have recorded a new opening to this favorite episode from the 2021 Scandal Water archives including details of the recent visit Ashley & Brian made to the Behringer-Crawford Museum to tour their traveling exhibit featuring costumes from the film “White Christmas” on loan from the Rosemary Clooney House.

Ashley recalls a few details from the bonus experience of getting to hear a talk from Heather French Henry (Miss America, 2000) speak about some trivia and little-known facts surrounding the costumes, and reveals a touching story about Heather French Henry’s motivation behind becoming the curator of the Rosemary Clooney House.  

Candy and Ashley then move on to their correction corner, where they set the record straight/offer their apologies about a few things they left out of the “Christmas Story Christmas” episode from two weeks ago!

Finally, we end our 2022 with a special message from Heather French Henry herself! 

If you go: The “White Christmas” exhibit can still be viewed at the museum through January 8, 2023 and more details can be found on their website at:

The original 2021 episode description read as follows:

What’s the best-selling Christmas song of all time, as well as the best-selling single ever, according to the Guiness Book of World Records

If you guessed “White Christmas,” you’d be right!

But here’s the harder question: Do you know the story of how that song originated, and the series of events that followed, ultimately resulting in one of the most beloved Christmas movies of all time? Or how that film eventually spawned a stage version of the work?

In this 2-part episode entitled “Still Dreaming of a White Christmas,” Candy and Ashley will discuss all this and much more! They hope you’ll spend some of your Christmas spilling the tea with them about this classic, feel-good story.
