Blue, Blue Christmas

You’ll be doin’ all right,
With your Christmas of white,
But I’ll have a blue, blue Christmas.

~ Songwriters: Jay W. Johnson & Billy Hayes

Merry Christmas!


  1. Well yours is prettier than mine will be since it will be brown.

    Merry Christmas to you and your family.

  2. A stunning evening image. Love the mood you captured, from the blue tones to the atmosphere on the beach. Truly magnificent.

  3. Nice and moody! I was thinking it would be nice if snow was blue...

  4. Great song and image. Have a Merry Christmas!!

  5. Oh my - that is blue. Mine is purple. Merry Christmas STA

  6. I love this piece more than I can say. It is gorgeous and resonates in every way possible for me this season. My precious Standard Poodle was 13-1/2 years old and doing great and suddenly was afflicted with liver disease in November. I read in the paper that a local church was having a "Blue Christmas non-traditional holiday service for the lonely, sad, depressed..." a few weekends ago and, although I am not a church-goer, it seemed right. They did a beautiful job (a guy even played Blue Christmas on guitar), with candles for people to light, and a basket of blue ornaments at the back of the room for each participant to take home. My dog died on Friday, assisted gently by her vet, and I have her ashes home in an urn. It is indeed a blue Christmas here, a quiet and contemplative one. Your beautiful photograph increases the depth of everything I am feeling. And I am most grateful to you. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to you.

  7. I've always liked the song, but I might like your photo even more. In both the song and the picture, the sadness is made bearable by the beauty--mainly the light and the perfect composition in the pic.

  8. I had a blue Christmas too, but a cold wave is hitting us and the new year will start with temperatures near 0ºC at night in the Lisbon area, which is too much for us! :-)
    All the best in 2015. And, of course, I love this shot!

  9. Ah l'heure bleue! Now this is a blue Christmas that I'd be happy with! I hope you had a Merry Christmas. I love the blue in this shot!

  10. My Christmas was mostly green, but I prefer your version.

  11. Great lyrics and an AMAZING photo!
    It is so pleasing to the eye. I could look at this for a long time, because it makes me feel good and it makes me feel mellow.
    You are an artist, my friend!

    Hope your holidays were good and that we all have a great new year...
