It's been a discouraging year for many Americans. But cheer up, chin up; a new year full of new chances is on the way.
Have yourself a merry little Christmas,
Make the Yule-tide gay,
From now on,
our troubles will be miles away....
Sing it, Judy!
And a big MERRY CHRISTMAS as well to our returning troops:
Christmas Eve will find them
Where the love-light gleams
They'll be home for Christmas
And not just in their dreams......
Merry Christmas and warm wishes to all Deafening Silence readers, religious or not. I hope everyone will have an opportunity to hug a loved one, raise a glass to treasured friends or simply take a deep breath and get ready for the New Year ahead.
