It has such a “feel good” sound to it.
No matter what kind of day I may be having, hearing that phrase brightens my mood.
Why do we say Merry Christmas?
Merry conjures up a sense of cheerfulness and liveliness.
What a happy word. No it’s more than happy. It’s MERRY and bright.
It seems the slogan “Merry Christmas” became the default message
on a new tradition of exchanging Christmas cards
introduced by Victorians in the 1800’s.
But it was Charles Dickens’…… ‘” A Christmas Carol” ……that made the phrase popular and lasting.
One more reason to love that story.
Side Note…..How exciting. My daughter and I ……along with the hubby’s… are going to a
production of “A Christmas Carol” next week.
And one of the all time favorite songs of the season remind us to…….
Have yourself a merry little Christmas
Let your heart be light
From now on,
our troubles will be out of sight
Have yourself a merry little Christmas, Make the Yule-tide gay,
From now on, our troubles will be miles away.
Here we are as in olden days, Happy golden days of yore.
Faithful friends who are dear to us
Gather near to us once more.
So have yourself a
Merry, Merry Christmas Season.
