Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas” is a song introduced by Judy Garland in the 1944 MGM musical Meet Me in St. Louis. Frank Sinatra later recorded a version with modified lyrics, which has become more common than the original. The song was credited to Hugh Martin and Ralph Blane, although during a December 21, 2006 NPR interview, Martin said that Blane had encouraged him to write the song but had not had anything more to do with writing it. In 2007, ASCAP ranked “Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas” the third most performed Christmas song written by ASCAP members of the past five years.[

  1. Obama Gives Holiday Message

    HONOLULU—President Barack Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama on Saturday wished the country a Merry Christmas and asked Americans to take some time to support the troops in Iraq and Afghanistan.

    The Obamas, who are vacationing in Honolulu through the New Year, said the holidays are a time for family and friends to come together and to look out for those who are less fortunate.

    “This is the season when we celebrate the simplest yet most profound gift of all: the birth of a child who devoted his life to a message of peace, love and redemption,” the president said in his weekly radio address to the nation. He added, “A message that says no matter who we are, we are called to love one another—we are our brother’s keeper, we are our sister’s keeper, our separate stories in this big and busy world are really one.”

    Obama’s Hawaii vacation mixes golf with such topics as arms pact and reelection

    KAILUA, HAWAII – Almost immediately after he walked off Air Force One early Thursday morning, a relaxed-looking President Obama had a green lei around his neck and a smile on his face.

    It was the first sign that while the president will be working while he is on vacation, it’s not a “working vacation.” Administration aides emphasized that the president wanted real down time after an intense two-month period after Election Day, and Obama started his 11-day trip with several hours of golf Thursday. He spent much of Friday afternoon at the beach with his daughters, Sasha and Malia.

    Forced to delay his vacation by five days as Congress worked on a series of the president’s top priorities, Obama added a day on the back end. He will now depart for Washington on Jan. 2, instead of Jan. 1 as originally scheduled.

    White House spokesman Bill Burton said Obama would spend time “recharging his batteries, spending time with family and dealing with presidential duties.”
