After World War II, Bob Wallace and Phil Davis have a successful song-and-dance act. With romance in mind, the two follow a duo of beautiful singing sisters en route to their Christmas show at a Vermont lodge that happens to be owned by their former army commander.

With a dazzling score full of loved tunes, White Christmas is uplifting and a holiday musical worthy of enjoying year after year.
