I love old movies, but there are some that do not hold much interest for me. “Meet Me In St Louis” is one of those films. But what I do find interesting about the movie is that the well-known Christmas song that was introduced, “Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas”, is not in fact a merry little number. It was sung by Judy Garland’s character as a way to cheer up her little sister as the family prepares to move from their home and relocate to New York.
Looking back at this past year, between Sandy and the horrific events in Newtown, this holiday season has been about making the best of sad situations and hoping that ‘someday soon our troubles will be miles away.’ And so, for Breezy Point, for Staten Island, for Seaside Heights, for Long Beach Island, and for Newtown CT, we hope that you can find some joy in the holiday season. Or, if nothing else, find the belief that things will get better from here.
