Remembering Our Deployed Heroes and Sheroes

December 14, 2018

All of our clients and friends know how very much Family & Co. Jewelers supports our troops; as well as our police and other first responders.  At this time of the year especially we honor our troops who are keeping us safe around the world while we are home with our loved ones.

The lyrics below are from a Christmas classic written in 1943 and first sung by Bing Crosby.  How many of you have paid attention to the very last line "If only in my dreams"?
 
The song is sung from the point of view of a soldier stationed overseas during World War II, writing a letter to his family. Much like the men and women today who are deployed around the world.  Please continue to help us support these heroes and sheroes by bringing us care package items.  Not just during the holidays but all year long.  Until they ALL come home!
 
In the message, he tells his family he will be coming home and to prepare the holiday for him, and requests snow and mistletoe, and presents on the tree. The song ends on a melancholy note, with the soldier saying, "I'll be home for Christmas, if only in my dreams"
 
Please read the lyrics through to the end.
 
I'll be home for Christmas
You can plan on me
Please have snow and mistletoe
And presents on the tree
Christmas Eve will find me
Where the lovelight gleams
I'll be home for Christmas
If only in my dreams
I'll be home for Christmas
You can plan on me
Please have snow and mistletoe
And presents on the tree
Christmas Eve will find me
Where the lovelight gleams
I'll be home for Christmas
If only in my dreams
