Christmas Countdown 2012: 1 day!

Meet Me in St. LouisToday is Christmas Eve! Time to finish up all those loose ends for the big night tonight! It’s time to get the cookies and milk ready for Santa Claus, too — and don’t forget a carrot or two for the reindeer!

The now-iconic modern Christmas song Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas is identified primarily with two singers — Judy Garland and Frank Sinatra. It was Garland, however, who introduced the song to audiences in the 1944 MGM musical Meet Me in St. Louis — 68 years ago. Here’s a look back at the first time audiences heard the song.

And, of course, have yourself a merry little Christmas!
