Movie Song of the Week: "Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas"

Wow! I had been warned that this song was a lot darker in its original context than in its more modern version. But I never realized how dark until just this week. Then again, this song was first written and performed in 1944, a year when many Americans had little reason to feel optimistic about the future due to World War II. And, of course, in view of recent events, it would be foolish of me to not feel a bit leery about enjoying myself in the wake of any holiday song -- especially since my siblings and I once had to move around Christmastime. But that's just me.

Please feel free to enjoy the coming holidays if you can.
