Bob Hope: Christmas With The Troops

American Comedy

Bob Hope [1903–2003] entertains the troops. I remember seeing many of these Christmas specials during the 1960s and ’70s, where Hope, through the use humor, brought these men and women stationed overseas a sense of normalcy, a little bit of home, and a warm feeling of all that is good in America. This was his gift, and a fine gift it was. The ending of these special shows with “Silent Night” is indeed, well, special, a song that continually has the power to stir and uplift the soul. Sleep in heavenly peace. Peace, wherever and whenever it can be found, is always welcome and necessary. Merry Christmas to all.
