Blue Christmas

Nearly every morning I wake up with a song in my head. It seems very random -- it can be an old pop song, a hymn, a stupid commercial ditty -- I usually have no idea why that particular song comes to mind.

This morning it was "Blue Christmas." It keeps making me laugh because I know very little of the lyrics and it reminds me of a story my sister told me. She told me she was with my dad one day and she noticed that each time she came near to him he was singing, "...this masquerade...". Only those two words. He apparently didn't know any others.

Today, I keep singing in my mind, "...I'll have a blue Christmas without you, you'll be doing all right [probably not the right words] with your Christmas of white, but I'll have a blue, blue Christmas." Over and over.

  1. After I read this, *I* was singing "Blue Christmas."
