POTD: I'll Be Home for Christmas

Today's photo-of-the-day is from the Dallas Museum of Art. It's a detail from Alex Da Corte's neon ghost house, "Rubber Pencil Devil" ("2018, glass, aluminum, vinyl, velvet, neon, Plexiglas, high res digital video, color, sound"). It's part of the exhibition "For a Dreamer of Houses".

"I'll Be Home for Christmas" was recorded by Bing Crosby in 1943 during World War II. It was written to honor the millions of soldiers and sailors overseas who longed to be home at Christmas time. It still strikes a chord with people who are prevented from being with family at Christmas, especially this year because of the coronavirus pandemic.

Bonus photo after the jump.

I'll be home for Christmas
You can plan on me
Please have snow and mistletoe
And presents by the tree.
Christmas eve will find me
Where the love light gleams
I'll be home for Christmas
If only in my dreams.
