Wallpaper Description:

To my dear Desktop Nexus friends,

This wallpaper is for all of you...but I think you will especially appreciate it if you have had a rough, difficult year.

My original wallpaper design simply said, "Have a Merry Christmas." But a song started going through my head, and I couldn't get it out... so I changed my design to the title of that song.

At the bottom of this wallpaper description is a link to Judy Garland singing it. While I was researching the song and hunting for the link, I read an article that said this song brought tears to people's eyes when they watched it in the 1943 movie. They also said that many people consider it one of the saddest Christmas songs of all time...

Honestly, that was NOT my plan! I wanted this wallpaper to make you all HAPPY, not Sad!

But I can't change that now... Don't have time to make another wallpaper, this one is it!

As many of you know, I've had some major losses this year. Some of my wallpapers commemorate some of them...including extensive flood damage to my house and area in August, and the passing away of my Dad back in September.

Was it a coincidence that I was drawn to a Christmas song like this one? Probably not.

So many of you sent me notes and sympathy cards. Part of the reason I love this website so much is that people really care up here. We may go through sad times, but we are all in this together!

Have yourselves, a wonderful, meaningful, Christmas. Remember with me, that hard and painful times do pass. If we didn't go through the rough times, we would not realize just how good and joyful the better times are.

With Love & appreciation,

CollieSmile :)

PS. Here is the link to the song, along with the lyrics. Warning-- Tears are a possible side effect of this link.


Have yourself a merry little Christmas
Let your heart be light
Next year all our troubles will be out of sight
Have yourself a merry little Christmas
Make the yule tide gay
Next year all our troubles will be miles away
Here we are as in olden days
Happy golden days of yore
Faithful friends who were dear to us
Will be near to us once more
Someday soon, we all will be together
If the fates allow
Until then, we'll have to muddle through somehow
So have yourself a merry little Christmas now.
