Merry Christmas, Everyone!

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.[

    Ok, one last post. This is why I love FLOTUS. For the last 2 years I believe, FLOTUS has answered phone calls for NORADS Santa tracking program. One of this year’s calls was awesome. Here’s the brief convo between 11-year-old Anthony from Fort Worth & FLOTUS:

    “MRS. OBAMA: Hello?

    ANTHONY: Hello?

    MRS. OBAMA: Hi, is Anthony there?

    ANTHONY: Yeah.

    MRS. OBAMA: Hi, Anthony, it’s Michelle Obama, the First Lady. How are you?

    ANTHONY: Good.

    MRS. OBAMA: How old are you, Anthony?

    ANTHONY: Eleven.

    MRS. OBAMA: You’re eleven? Where do you live?

    ANTHONY: Texas.

    MRS. OBAMA: Texas, nice. Well, have you been — are you calling to find out where Santa is right now?

    ANTHONY: Yep.

    MRS. OBAMA: Because I’m working with the people who track Santa by satellite, and I’m looking at the screen right now and they say that — it’s showing that he was last spotted in Italy — Venice, Italy. Can you imagine that? He’s all the way in Europe. And in about 20 seconds he’s going to be headed for Croatia. That’s another country in Europe. It’s one of the European countries. So it’s close to Italy and all that, but it’s still in Europe.

    ANTHONY: Can you come visit me in Texas?

    MRS. OBAMA: Yeah, he’s heading your way. He’s heading your way. But you know what, Santa doesn’t come until you’re fast asleep. You do know that, right?

    ANTHONY: Yeah, I was talking about you trying to visit me.

    MRS. OBAMA: Oh, me come to visit you. (Laughter.) Well, I don’t know if I’m going to be able to come and visit before Christmas tomorrow, but if ever I find myself in Texas next year — and I know I’m going to be coming to Texas one time next year — hopefully we can see each other then. How does that sound?

    ANTHONY: Will you come to my house?

    MRS. OBAMA: Yeah, I don’t know if I can come to your house. I might not be able to do that. But I’ll be keeping an eye on you, though.

    ANTHONY: How about my school?

    MRS. OBAMA: Your school — maybe your school. What school do you go to?

    ANTHONY: (Inaudible).

    MRS. OBAMA: All right, well, I’m going to tell my assistant right now. What part of Texas are you from?

    ANTHONY: Fort Worth.

    MRS. OBAMA: You’re at Fort Worth? I was in Fort Worth last year. So maybe we can come back. But until then, I want you to have a merry Christmas, okay Anthony?

    ANTHONY: Okay.

    MRS. OBAMA: All right, you give your family my best — what did you say, babe?

    ANTHONY: Can I talk to your husband?

    MRS. OBAMA: He’s not here right now. (Laughter.) But you know what, I will tell him that you asked about him. Okay?

    ANTHONY: Okay.

    MRS. OBAMA: All right. You keep being a good kid. Work hard in school, okay?

    ANTHONY: Okay. Tell your daughters I said Merry Christmas.

    MRS. OBAMA: I sure will. Thank you so much. You give your family my best, okay? You give them all a Merry Christmas from all of the Obamas, okay?

    ANTHONY: Okay. Thank you.

    MRS. OBAMA: All right, bye-bye.

    ANTHONY: Bye-bye.”
