Musical Musings from Christmases Past

Advent Calendar, December 21: Music

Chestnuts roast on open fires,
snowflakes nip at Nat King Cole's nose;
Crosby dreams of a white Christmas,
and where's Dean Martin? No-one knows.

In the manger, Johnny Mathis
awaits a sleigh ride just with you;
while in St. Louis, Garland hangs
a shining star on highest bough.

Burl Ives spreads his holly jolly,
and Chipmunks just can't stand the wait;
"Oh, Hurry Christmas, hurry fast!"
And, Santa don't you dare be late.

Very cute, Chery! That picture of Judy Garland reminds me that I learned that "Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas" was first sung by her in Meet Me in St. Louis, when I borrowed that movie from the library this summer. Interesting, as it wasn't a Christmas movie at all, but that song has become a Christmas classic!
