"Home for the Holidays" is a Christmas song written by Al Stillman and Robert Allen. It was a hit for Perry Como in 1954, but has also been recorded by numerous other artists. The upbeat song intersperses a chorus about the importance of being at home for holidays, with a quirky verse about people traveling across the US to get home.

Lyrics

Oh there's no place like home for the holidays
'Cause no matter how far away you roam
When you pine for the sunshine of a friendly gaze
For the holidays you can't be home sweet home
I met a man who lives in Tennessee and he was heading for
Pennsylvania and some homemade pumpkin pie
From Pennsylvania folks are traveling down to Dixie's sunny shores
From Atlantic to Pacific gee the traffic is terrific
Oh there's no place like home for the holidays
'Cause no matter how far away you roam
If you want to be happy in a million ways
For the holidays you can't be home sweet home
