MD Poll: Hang a Shining Star

"Faithful friends who are dear to us" named the classic Judy Garland holiday chestnut "Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas" their favorite Christmas movie song in the latest MD Poll. In fact, the Meet Me in St. Louis tune (by Kerry Mills and Andrew Sterling) received over 50% of the votes.

Irving Berlin's Oscar winning "White Christmas" (from Holiday Inn) came in second, the only other song to rake in double digits. In fact, three of the choices received no votes at all (see the comments section below for the full stats), proving that to most of us, we like our Christmas carols a little bittersweet.
