There are no presents under my Christmas tree. There are none that I've bought and wrapped that are waiting to be delivered. There are none that have been given to me to be opened on Christmas morning. Not a thing. Not even a stocking stuffer. That's because Mom said we're not doing presents this year. … Continue reading On the 19th Day of Blogmas…

What makes a movie a Christmas movie? The answer is really in the eye of the beholder. It all depends on the standard by which one measures the Christmas in the movie. Is it because the movie happens to take place at Christmas time? Is it because Christmas decorations are obvious in many of the … Continue reading On the 18th Day of Blogmas…

I'm running out of Christmas-y ideas for this whole Blogmas thing. And there are still 8 days left until Christmas. Anyway... Here's my top 10 Christmas movies... 10. Home AloneIt's Ferris Bueller meets Saw. What's not to love? You can't tell me that Kevin McAllister didn't grow up to be a complete sociopath.

Can I be honest with you? Of course I can be honest. If I can’t be honest on my blog, where can I be honest? I’m not feeling very Christmas-y this year. I know… It’s 2022… Maybe that’s excuse enough. Or maybe that’s more of a reason to get into the holiday spirit than any … Continue reading On the 16th Day of Blogmas…

It bothers me. But not for the reasons you’re probably thinking. Recently, “Baby, It’s Cold Outside” has been in the news because people are suddenly offended by a 74 year old song. People want it banned from radios. Y’all, I’ve been saying for years that the classic holiday song is highly inappropriate. FOR YEARS! And … Continue reading On the 14th Day of Blogmas…

When I was a kid, One Magic Christmas was one of those Christmas movies that we watched all the time. Honestly, I’m not sure why that was. I don’t remember ever thinking that it was such a great movie. But it’s there. All over my family memories of Christmas. It could be because, at one point, we … Continue reading On the 13th Day of Blogmas…

I’m sure by now most of you have heard the Christmas classic “I Want a Hippopotamus for Christmas.” I say classic because the song is nearly 60 years old. I don’t call it a classic because I enjoy hearing it year after year. I find it to be obnoxious. And irritating. And extremely catchy. Which … Continue reading On the 12th Day of Blogmas…

I know. You just read that title and thought, “This guy’s such a Grinch!” But I’m really not. I love Christmas. I might not get as into the holiday spirit as a lot of people do, but I certainly don’t sit around thinking of ways to ruin Christmas for everyone around me. There are just … Continue reading On the 11th Day of Blogmas…
