I know that we're a few weeks away from the actual holiday dates, but I wanted to wish everyone a Merry and a Happy Season too. :)

To me, the Christmas/holiday season is as important as the day(s) itself: the office parties, the family get tatherings, the trite TV specials, Christmas tunes on the radio, and yes, even the shopping (if one avoids the malls).

We just finished putting up the holiday décor at the office, and my first holiday parties are coming up this weekend. :drinkers:

Great time of the year. Hope y'all are having a good time, too :)

Hanukkah starts first (on the 12th) so Happy Hanukkah and Merry Christmas!

My husband just discovered battery-operated outdoor lights so we're going a little nuts this year.

Mr. Magoo's Christmas Carol!

A Charlie Brown Christmas!

How the Grinch Stole Christmas!

Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer!

Frosty the Snowman!

And those are just my favorite children's animated specials. Great movies coming up too:

It's a Wonderful Life

A Christmas Story

A Christmas Carol (The Alistair Sim version is the best, but I watch 'em all, LOL)

Miracle on 34th Street

White Christmas

Polar Express

Yee-Haw! I'm gonna be watching a lot of great TV over the next few weeks.






Oh, and.....





MERRY CHRISTMAS EVERYBODY!

I like both of those movies, but they just don't make my "favorites" list.

Your timing is impeccable. I think I've mentioned in prior years that we consider 'Feast of St. Nicholas' as the beginning of the "Season", and it's the day I hand out annual bonus checks at the Smithee Organization (With still plenty of time to spend it).

The Feast of S. Nicholas is... December 6th.

St. Nicholas Center: Why Celebrate St. Nicholas Day?

Edit: to fix Nicholas Center link.

Early Merry Christmas everyone. Had my annual Christmas party last weekend and it was great and yet I'm relieved it's over and now I can relax. :lol:

I bought some of those old fashioned big, plug in different colored lights to put outside on my front porch railing and I love it. I hardly ever do lights outside and when I do, they are typically solid blue since those are so pretty. I was feeling nostalgic this year.

I got a new blue spruce artificial tree for inside instead of my usual white flocked one and I'm in love with it. I put a lot less ornaments on it and it looks real clean and modern and goes with my decor really well to where I like to just stand back and look at it.

I love this Christmas stuff. It's so pretty. I love the movies as I mentioned before and spending time with family. Spent time with the grandkids last night playing tickle monster then my granddaughter insisted each of us get up in the middle of the room and play her toy guitar and sing a song. She and her little brother are so silly and fun.

Monty,
you might try Miracle in the Wilderness. I really like that one.

I hope everyone has a good Season. I'm going to pack it in as far as work after the 1st and I'm on vacation the last week, so I'm looking forward to that. I'll still go in and help out if they get shorthanded but my poor old body has had enough of steady work.

If I see it coming up in the TV listings, maybe I'll give it a shot (presuming it's not the same time as one of my classic favorites.)

And happy retirement!

I'm so torn by both your holiday sentiments. On the one hand being Christian, I celebrate Christmas, and feel, like totally included. Then you say Happy Hanukkah, and make me feel completely excluded.

Then, worse of all, you have the audacity, actually, not audacity, it's bigotry and hatred, by flaunting your light privilege. Millions of us still have to run extension cords to power outlets,

Right now I'm watching the 1935 version of "Scrooge" starring Sir Seymour Hicks.

:D

I still like the 1951 Alastair Sim version best, but this one's classic too.

There was one with Henry Winkler that wasn't bad. (Can't recall the title). And there was one with Bill Murray, though, having seen it, was enjoyable but "once is enough".

I like Scrooge a musical version with a fantastic cast: Albert Finney, Alec Guinness and Edith Evans. It's corny, charming and delightful.

Well as I said somewhere above, I'll watch 'em all. But the Alastair Sim version (1951) will always be my favorite.

That's one of the better versions, I agree. And here's a piece of trivia for ya: The director (Clive Donner) is the same guy who was the editor of my own favorite (1951 with Alastair Sim.)

But I still like the Sim version best.

We woke up this morning with a thin cottony layer of snow on the ground here in Tomball/Magnolia, TX. Very rare for here, but it's appropriate for the season.

Winter Wonderland!

Merry Christmas, all! God's blessings to all of you.

I have some cousins in Eagle Pass who reported snow as well. Up here in the great white north, we’ve barely had any.
(I just jinxed us, I know)
