The decorations and the old scuffed wood bring to mind the Christmas song…
Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas
Let your heart be light,
From now on our troubles will be out of sight.
Have yourself a merry little Christmas
Make the yuletide gay,
From now on our troubles will be far away.
Once again as in olden days,
Happy golden days of yore,
Faithful friends who are dear to us
Gather near to us once more.
Through the years we all will be together
If the fates allow.
Until then we’ll have to muddle through somehow,
And have yourself a merry little Christmas now.
