One of my old times favorite Christmas movies – ever since I can remember – is Meet Me in St. Louis and I am thrilled that it remained a Christmas favorite in our family!

The musical Meet Me in St. Louis follows the events of a whole year in the lives of the colorful Smith family at the very beginning of the 20th century. You have fun and laughter, lots of singing and a worry-free lifestyle, at least for the children of the family! An MGM production, the movie was based on a series of short stories by Sally Benson, originally published in The New Yorker magazine under the title “5135 Kensington”, and later in novel form as Meet Me in St. Louis.

Moonlight glow, sparkles and a red dress on Christmas Eve…

Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas
(as sung by Judy Garland)


Have yourself a merry little Christmas
Let your heart be light
Next year all our troubles will be out of sight
Have yourself a merry little Christmas
Make the yuletide gay
Next year all our troubles will be miles away
Once again as in olden days
Happy golden days of yore
Faithful friends who are dear to us
Will be near to us once more
Someday soon we all will be together
If the fates allow
Until then we’ll have to muddle through somehow
So have yourself a merry little Christmas now


Songwriters: Hugh Martin / Ralph Blane

Note: the line “Until then we’ll have to muddle through somehow” was replaced by a more celebratory “Hang a shining star upon the highest bough” when Frank Sinatra recorded this song in 1957.
