Judy Garland’s Original Is Still the Most Wonderful Christmas Song of All Time

Just as lovely as I remember it! There is something about this song that makes me want to rush out and be with my loved ones. The tenderness in Judy Garland’s voice and the sentiment in the lyrics create an incredible feeling every time I hear this song.

Originally written in 1944 for the film Meet Me in St. Louis, this song resonated with people during World War II, capturing the feeling of loss and the hope of being reunited with loved ones. When Judy Garland performed this song at the Hollywood Canteen, it is said that the soldiers were moved to tears.

“Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas” is not only one of the most beloved Christmas songs, but also one of the best written in the 20th century. It is a heartfelt tribute to those who cannot be with us during this special time of year. And who better to sing it than the master of song herself, Judy Garland?
