The Spirits Must Have Done Everything in One Night!

Tomorrow night I'll turn down all the lights and pop in the DVD of A Christmas Carol, the 1951 version, starring Alastair Sim. When all else fails to get me into the spirit of the season, this movie never fails to get to me. This particular segment has be laughing and crying every time. It's all very timeless.

What brings on the nostalgia for you?

We had a set of Reader's Digest Christmas records that we played over and over during Christmas when I was a kid - and my mother very graciously gave them to me one year. For that reason alone, I knew I had to buy a stereo with a record player. I put those on every Christmas and it instantly transports me back to my childhood.

It's a Wonderful Life. And A White Christmas. Both are must sees.

Merry Christmas, Lisa and Scott. I count you as one of my blessings, even though we disagree, especially since we disagree, politically.

Love ya Girl.

For me, Lisa, it's the simple act of selecting the perfect Christmas cards. Enjoy, everyone!

I knew I liked you. This is a litmus test for people of taste: Who was the only great Scrooge ever filmed? And the answer is obviously Alistair Sim. This is my Christmas nostalgia, too.

And Happy Chanukah to Scott, who has the best of both worlds -- the beauty of Chanukah and Alastair Sim, too. (Not to mention Christmas presents.)

OK that's on the DVD list. We've got other versions on video but sounds like Alistair is the way to go. I'm not sure who starred in the version I remember from childhood; it was on TV every year...maybe this is it? I'll have to look into that bit of trivia.

The kids still love Grinch and Peanuts and Frosty every year, so I get to enjoy those too. My favorite tradition happens after the holida craziness is over: a cup of hot peppermint tea, a warm gingerbread cookie and my annual read of A Child's Christmas in Wales by Dylan Thomas.

Hope you and Scott are enjoying the holiday week! Hugs from across town, K.

Alistair Sim is my favorite too, but I do remember an earlier Christmas Carol that I enjoyed.

Kathleen made a lot of effort to take the pressure off Christmas as the One Big Day, so the children got candy in their shoes on St. Nicholas Day, and on St. Lucia's Day, she'd make Swedish St. Lucia bread and Kathleen and Sarah would get up in the wee hours and Sarah would be St. Lucia. She'd wear a white dress and have a halo of candles in her hair. (If you've seen the American Girls book about Kirsten, there's a description of it. ) And then on Epiphany, Kathleen would make the Spanish Three Kings Bread.

Hehe. Steve-I can just see those candles! I had Samantha...regardless.

I hope everyone's christmas went well. It was appropriately cold here and overall was a good time.

We all survived to do it all again next year!

Literary Quote

It is worth mentioning, for future reference, that the creative power which bubbles so pleasantly in beginning a new book quiets down after a time, and one goes on more steadily. Doubts creep in. Then one becomes resigned. Determination not to give in, and the sense of an impending shape keep one at it more than anything.


Virginia Woolf
