December 9 (16 Days to Go): Judy Garland ~ Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas

A melancholy little tune, fitting for today’s theme of loss on my Facebook Friends List, “Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas” comes  from Meet Me In St. Louis, one of Metro Goldwin Mayer’s classic Golden-Age musicals. The movie, made in 1944, was directed by Judy Garland’s husband-to-be, Vincente Minnelli. (It’s their first film together. Liza was merely a glint in the eye at the time.) The movie from produced two hits for  Garland. (“The Trolley Song” was the second.)

I can sing this song by heart, but it always leaves me sad afterward. The holidays aren’t always happy.
