The song is written from the perspective of a soldier serving over seas during World War 2. The song particularly struck a nerve with overseas GIs and their families awaiting their return from serving their country in World War 2. The GI magazine said Crosby accomplished more for military morale than anyone else of that era. The song touched the hearts of Americans, both soldiers and civilians, who were in the midst of World War II, and it earned Crosby his fifth gold record. I did a little digging and came across a cool addendum, shall we say? The story goes that around Christmas in the chaplain on the Battleship North Carolina knew that the crew was feeling homesick as they were expected to still be overseas during the holiday season.

Originally written to honor soldiers overseas who longed to be home at Christmas time, "I'll Be Home for Christmas" has since gone on to become a Christmas standard. The song is sung from the point of view of a soldier stationed overseas during World War II , writing a letter to his family. In the message, he tells the family he will be coming home and to prepare the holiday for him, and requests snow, mistletoe , and presents on the tree. The song ends on a melancholy note, with the soldier saying, "I'll be home for Christmas, if only in my dreams". The song was written by the lyricist Kim Gannon and composer Walter Kent. Songwriter and later producer and manager for The Platters , Buck Ram , who said he previously wrote a poem and song with the same title, was credited as a co-writer of the song following a lawsuit brought by Ram's publisher, Mills Music. Later pressings added the name of Buck Ram to the songwriting credit.
