Well, my husband has driven into work like a crazy person (we’ve got about a foot of snow and it’s still coming down) and as we get closer and closer to Christmas, I find it harder and harder to get up the motivation to do anything that doesn’t involve cocoa and Christmas carols. (I wish I could blame the dog this week for this being late. I will blame the snow instead.)
So let’s give into the holiday cheer. Christmas movies. They’re everywhere this time of year, with their messages of family and love and peace on earth, goodwill to man. Animated, live-action, black and white…
Which ones are your favorites? Which ones do you watch every year?
Me, I’m partial to Muppet Christmas Carol. My sister and I, until we were married, would do a marathon of Rudolph, How the Grinch Stole Christmas, Mickey’s Christmas Carol, Frosty the Snowman, and A Muppet Family Christmas (which you cannot get on DVD and makes me terribly sad). We rarely made it through all of them still awake, but every year, we tried.
I’ve only seen things like It’s a Wonderful Life, Holiday Inn, and White Christmas a single time each. I liked them all, but I guess I don’t search them out on a regular basis.
Are you ready for Christmas? Feeling the holiday spirit? Drinking enough eggnog?
I will try, in all good faith, to have a subgenre study up on Friday, but I’m not making any guarantees.
