Film wise it has to be It's a Wonderful Life and National Lampoons Christmas Vacation, it's just not Christmas till I've seen them. Music, Michael Buble and Seth McFarlane christmas CDS Telly, not sure nothing much as can't think of anything which is guaranteed to be on. A sherlock christmas is always a good one!
It's also technically not Christmas till I've seen the crucible's christmas show.
You'll be with me like a handprint on my heart.. x
Viewing - it's got to be Muppet Christmas Carol: "No cheeses for us meeses!"
Absolutely! It's by far my favourite version of this story, because they do it straight, without losing the usual Muppet fun.
I have recently acquired an old 1993 VHS tape, which is full screen, but has the song "When Love is Gone" included. It always annoys me that it's cut from all the TV broadcasts! It has now been dubbed onto a DVd to preserve the recording.
Something else I've dubbed from an old video recording is "The Nativity", part of the National Theatre version of "The Mysteries". I wish Channel 4 would broadcast them again. I'll be playing it again over the holiday.
"Would you have me false to my nature? Rather say I play the (wo)man I am".
I'm not at all Christmassy and still miss shift-working when I could keep busy until things returned to normal, while people who did wish to celebrate could do so. Plus I don't watch tv. However, one Christmas activity I do particularly enjoy and anticipate is re-reading a favourite childhood book, "Christmas With The Savages" by Mary Clive, which is the story of a small girl's Christmas with extended family in an Edwardian country house. It's hilarious and some passages still make me cry with laughter.
