Have yourself a merry little Christmas
Let your heart be light
From now on your troubles will be out of sight

Now, the world seems to be a place full of complications at all level, uneasiness has become the bane of the society, the younger generation are fed up with the inconsistent life paradigm shift which may or may not be favorable in the nearest future. Amidst all these, this generation is a generation that wants it all no matter the outcome; good, bad ugly.

Even the matured ones seem more confused than the younger ones, lots of worries, health, job, finance, relationship, marriages etc. Christmas is a time to consciously let go of some things.

Go back to your drawing board, retrace your steps. If you succeed in consciously not worrying about the things you can’t change, your heart becomes light, and your troubles will be out of sight. That would give you a clearer vision of what next to do.

Have yourself a merry little Christmas
Make the Yuletide gay
From now on your troubles will be miles away

The second verse is more like an icing on the verse 1 which is the cake. However, it has been misunderstood alot by so may people, especially the, “Make the Yuletide gay”. Make the Yuletide gay simply means: make the season a happy and memorable one.

In this context, “gay” means happy. This song does not in anyway encourage homosexuality and does not preach  about a Yuletide filled with homosexual activities.

Christmas is a time for loving, giving, sharing, it’s a time to make up. Most importantly, it is a time to love yourself, forgive yourself, and appreciate yourself. Only, that would help you love, forgive, and appreciate others in truth.
