A Merry Little Christmas

(1 customer review)

Designer: Sandra McLeod

Songwriters Hugh Martin and Ralph Blaine wrote the classic song “Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas” for Judy Garland’s 1944 movie, Meet Me in St. Louis. Martin began the song with the melody but couldn’t make it work, so he threw it away.  Blaine  had heard the tune and liked it so they dug through the wastebasket until they found it and then started working on the words to the melody.  As in the movie, sometimes the sad scenes in life need an upbeat song to keep us encouraged.

Have yourself a merry little Christmas
Let your heart be light
From now on our troubles will be out of sight

Have yourself a merry little Christmas
Make the yuletide gay
From now on our troubles will be miles away

Here we are as in olden days
Happy golden days of yore
Faithful friends who are dear to us
Gather near to us, once more

Through the years we all will be together
If the fates allow
Hang a shining star upon the highest bough
And have yourself a merry little Christmas right now
