"Santa Baby" was written in 1953 by  Philip Springer and Joan Javits, niece to Senator Jacob Javits. 

It was intended as a humorous Christmas list of extravagant gifts,

addressed to Santa Claus by a woman who wished sables, yachts and gifts from Tiffany's. 

It was originally recorded by Eartha Kitt in 1953, and remained one of Eartha's favorite songs. 

It  has been performed and recorded by countless others - even today, 62 years later.

However, I am not certain anyone could sing it quite like Eartha.

And we apologize for the 'paraphrase' - we just could not help ourselves!

 


 

Christmas carols as we know them today did not enter general use until the 19th century. 

Although it is hard to imagine, for many years, Christmas was quiet. 

It was not until the 13th century that carols were sung in native languages -

but then more by minstrels and wassailers.

For a short history of carols (in verse), you can click here or the first catalog below.
