The Way I See It

Have yourself a Merry little Christmas now

 

 

I ’m one of THOSE people. You know the ones who actually look forward to Christmas music on the radio.

Imagine my surprise when I tuned into Q109.1 before Thanksgiving and they had already started mixing in some holiday tunes!

Happy? Yep. I’ve had it on that station the entire time. Plus, at home I’ve been listening to them on TV as well as CDs and iTunes.

One of my favorite songs is “White Christmas” and just saw the play at the Woodlawn Theatre on Saturday night with friends.

It was great production and just like the movie with Bing Crosby and Danny Kaye – we all sang along to “White Christmas” during the finale.

But one of my favorite songs was made popular by Judy Garland, but my favorite rendition was by the Carpenters – being the 70s kind of gal that I am. I would take the record (yes, those round, black vinyl things) and put it on my turntable – on repeat. Something about Karen and Richard Carpenter

The lyrics pretty much sums up my thoughts about

Christmas – so I am going to share them.

Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas (Lyrics by Hugh Martin)

Christmas future is far away
Christmas past is past
Christmas present is here today
Bringing joy that will last

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

now

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 now

The way I see it, I hope you can hear
your favorite Christmas song this season,
too.
