Merry Christmas!

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 Yule-tide 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.
Lyrics: Ralph Blane; Music: Hugh Martin, 1943

I'm told that "Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas" is one of the saddest Christmas songs ever. I suppose it must be one's perspective because I don't feel the sadness. I am blessed to be surrounded by my family this Christmas.

And Cat is enjoying her first Christmas in Canada. She was very excited by all the treats Santa brought.

Merry Blessed Christmas Everyone!

Merry Christmas. I hope that you, Time Traveler and Cat had a wonderful day. It really is a blessing to be home for Christmas.


p.s Thanks for the shortbread recipe. I have a few other of Grandma's holiday recipes but not this one. I can't wait to try it!
