Okay, let’s totally goof around a bit today since it’s a quiet day with nothing but gift shopping and some grocery shopping to do and with my love of crowds and The People, there’s a chance I’ll end up incarcerated at the end of the day and I’d like to think so of you will have a smile on your face.
(And I don’t know how this will work but if you want to match any of these, send ‘em along to firstname.lastname@example.org and I’ll figure out a way to make a file of ‘em and get them up here maybe tomorrow night from Milwaukee; it’s one way we can stay a wee bit in touch)
Miracle on 34th Street
Bing, Danny Kaye, Rosemary Clooney? How could you go wrong with a cast like that. Put it in the middle of the movie marathon and sing along if you feel like it.
The 1950s version, with Alistair Sim and accept to substitutes. Not entirely uplifting from start to finish but the dark moments become brighter, right?
A Christmas Story
It’s simply the gold standard by which all others should be measured. Angels getting wings, old crazy Uncle Billy, lovable mixed up George Bailey? And I’ve seen the gym floor that opens over the pool and that’s cool.
Back to the flicks
The Best Christmas Movies, Untraditional
(My taste tends to run to the old stuff but these all work at some point over this time of year, right?)
Haven’t seen it in years but I remember it being very good, right?
Gotta have a chick flick, right?
The Muppet Christmas Carol
Again, the gold standard of this genre and always brought to my attention by The Mighty Quinn, a big fan of the Muppets.
This had to be on the list of carols, right?
Speaking of …
Hark, The Herald Angels Sing
O Come, All Ye Faithful
Joy To The World
Good King Wencelas
But this? This is outstanding and a huge favourite and everyone has to love it, correct?
Have a great day.
