Performing Bob & Doug 12 Days again today. Last year daughter said the other guy, who's Irish, did the better Canadian accent! Oh well, as least I have the song's best line. Half-way through: "This should just be the TWO days of Christmas. It's too hard for us." Cheers

All is fantastic -- just not sunny! And now I'm late for school!

Good morning from Ireland, Timo. Or indeed, good night from Ireland. Tough game. Off to last day of school before Christmas, you're off to the land of nod, I trust. Lots more hockey to be played. Cheers

Agree. Great story also told by Bing Crosby about doing war-time concerts for the troops at Christmas time. They would beg him to sing White Christmas and he always tried to get out of it because he knew they would all just cry. They always persuaded him and they always cried.

(Did this for a CD booklet) Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas This was originally a sad Christmas song, written by Hugh Martin (still going strong at 96!) for Judy Garland in the 1944 MGM musical Meet Me in St Louis. Over the years it was gradually tweaked into a brighter and irresistibly sentimental bitter-sweetness. At the draft stage, however, both Garland and director Vincente Minnelli had pleaded with Martin to make some alterations to his original words: Have yourself a merry little Christmas, It may be your last. Next year we may all be living in the past. Yikes! But even after Martin agreed to a few changes, US troops still wept openly when Garland sang it in concerts for them during the war. In 1957 Frank Sinatra tinkered with it further, for a Christmas album, being among those ill-at-ease with the idea that "until then we'll have to muddle through somehow". And who knows? Maybe some day we'll hear it in the Service of Nine Lessons and Carols, seeing as how Hugh Martin himself re-worked the words once more, this time into a church-friendly version: "Have Yourself a Blessed Little Christmas"!

It's interesting that you would shingle one out like that, Burly.

Et tu, Front? So many posters have previously told me I "Better go watch curling"!

Hey twilight! Your recommendation is good enough for me, and that was some offer -- many thanks. But just ordered it on Amazon. Very glad you didn't skip by my current Big Jean avatar! Cheers
