Twelve Days of Christmas- Day 11- Sad Christmas Songs

Sunday, December 23, 2012
If you've been reading this month you probably figured out that we at MFAMLG are Christmas crazy people. We love Christmas, our living room looks like Santa threw up in there, we are happy little elves this time of year.

And while I believe you don't do yourself any favors by slipping into depression- let's face it- the Christmas season is a stressful time for many people, a lonely time for others. Christmas, for some, sucks.

So it is for those of you feeling a little blue this time of year we offer day eleven- Sad Christmas Songs.

This idea came to me while listening to Christmas music this morning and an Elvis song came on. I am not sure Elvis ever sang a happy Christmas song.

Here for your listening enjoyment are our eleven sad, unhappy and depressing Christmas songs. I had to lead with one we've mentioned before, "Have yourself a Merry little Christmas" as sung by Judy Garland. That song just feels miserable and sad when she sings it, bless her heart. Some of these I had forgotten until I heard them again- Kitty Wells and Merle Haggard were favorites of my dad. I loved John Denver as a kid, and of course the Carpenters "Merry Christmas Darling" has always been a favorite. Hope you enjoy our sad little Christmas offering this day before the day before Christmas.

1. Have yourself a Merry Little Christmas- Judy Garland
2. I wish every day could be like Christmas - Bon Jovi (Elvis' is really depressing)
3. Merry Christmas Darling - The Carpenters
4. Blue Christmas - Elvis
5. Please come home for Christmas - Charles Brown (best version!)
6. I heard the Bells on Christmas Day - Andy Williams
7. Christmas Aint' like Christmas any More - Kitty Wells (classic!)
8. Christmas for Cowboys - John Denver
9. Christmas when You were Mine - Taylor Swift
10. If we make it through December- Merle Haggard
11. What do the lonely do for Christmas? - the Emotions
