In 1944, the movie Meet Me in St. Louis introduced America to what became one of it’s best loved Christmas songs, Have Yourself a merry Little Christmas. The haunting music was written by Birmingham, AL native Hugh Martin, lyrics by Ralph Blane, and over the years has been sung by some of the prettiest voices in the business. My favorites have been Judy Garland, Rosemary Clooney, and Annie Lennox. Maybe this little woodland fawn has come to St Louis to meet somebody special! Or maybe he’s in Philadelphia, Madison, New Orleans, Stevens Point or Sarasota, where special people around the world are waiting to meet someone special tonight.
Hang a shining star upon the highest bough, and have yourselves a merry little Christmas now.
Live your lives in color!
