More Classic Christmas Music

Judy Garland - Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas
Obviously recorded during World War II - I found the images of GIs in Europe (they would have been fighting the Battle of the Bulge over Christmas, 1944 if my history serves) coupled with the hopeful lyric, "Next year all our troubles will be out of sight" to have a poignant connection to the present.
This one is for those currently serving in Iraq and Afghanistan, in hopes that they won't have to spend next Christmas away from their families fighting to fatten Dick Cheney's wallet and to defend George Bush's fragile ego.
