"When did 'Count Your Blessings' become part of the standard Christmas repertoire?" That's what I'd like to know. I guess just from being featured in the 1954 movie "White Christmas", it acquired the connection. The connection doesn't work for me. It's NOT a Christmas song!!!!! It's not even a properly seasonal song!
There are many songs you only hear during "the season" that aren't strictly Christmas songs (Sleigh Ride, Frosty, Let It Snow, etc.), but this song is too much of a stretch to call it a Christmas song. So stop it! (Unless you really think it is a Christmas song, in which case, please don't play it when I'm around)
