RTBN 25 Days of Christmas: Day Eight
Meet Me in St. Louis
Rachel
RTBN 25 Days of Christmas is the RTBN staff's irreverent exploration of our collective holiday pop culture traditions.

Technically I'm a day late on this, but whatever, it's the holiday season and I can't be held accountable for anything.

Meet Me in St. Louis. It's emblematic of Christmas in that you can have a totally mediocre year and then one stand out day that changes everything. That standout day is the Judy Garland performance of "Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas."



Because while the rest of Meet me in St. Louis might be a totally whatever experience, this performance is THE quintessential Christmas experience: nostalgic strangly stirred by cheer, all wrapped up in a bow that makes you unsure whether you're happy or sad. Meet Me in St. Louis is an adult Christmas experience, one you don't exactly know what to do with but have to go through nonetheless. So watch it.
