Interesting facts and trivia about It's the Most Wonderful Time of the Year. By Songfacts®.

"It's The Most Wonderful Time Of The Year" is a collaboration by composer George Wyle (known for writing the <i>Gilligan's Island</i> theme) and his regular partner Eddie Pola. It was written specifically for <b>The Andy Williams Christmas Album</b> and the crooner performed it on his popular variety show, <i>The Andy Williams Show</i>. He went on to record seven more Christmas albums, and this song appeared on every one of them. The song's popularity, paired with the singer's penchant for gaudy sweaters and holiday TV specials, earned him the nickname "Mr. Christmas."

Surprisingly, this song was not released as the promotional single for the album. Columbia Records decided to release Williams' cover of Bing Crosby's "<a href="https://www.songfacts.com/facts/bing-crosby/white-christmas">White Christmas</a>," instead. It topped the special Billboard Christmas Singles chart and was the #1 selling Christmas single.

Williams recorded this song as a duet with Contemporary Christian music singer Kathy Troccoli in 1999.
