Sh**ter’s Full!

Did everyone have a Christmas Vacation Christmas? It seems like this has become a Grinch/Charlie Brown style tradition in a lot of households, we’ve been running it for years now, probably since it came out, there’s nothing like a good Christmas movie, though it seems like the industry has become a little more buckshot about trying to release a good one (Fred Claus anyone? Wait, is that the one with Dudley Moore?). My family rundown lately has been Scrooged and Polar Express while everyone’s stilling milling about, then Elf and Christmas Vacation as everyone settles in for the night.

Did everyone have a Christmas Vacation Christmas? It seems like this has become a Grinch/Charlie Brown style tradition in a lot of households, we’ve been running it for years now, probably since it came out. There’s nothing like a good Christmas movie, though it seems like the industry has become a little more buckshot about trying to release a good one (Fred Claus anyone? I now take you twenty years into the future – “…Wait, is that the one with Dudley Moore?”…and we’re back.).
My family rundown lately has been Scrooged and Polar Express while everyone’s still milling about and baking, then Elf and Christmas Vacation as everyone settles in for the night. Usually I run the Opus Christmas special and Grinch and Charlie Brown, but unfortunately VHS was given the small kiddie table this year. So, what’s your Christmas rotation? And is A Christmas Story now ruined or immortalized with the 24 hour marathon? I must admit, the cleverness and foresight of someone to program that movie for 24 hours overrides how upset I might get at its oversaturation.
