Re: It's That Time Of Year Again-It's CHRISTMAS Time! And HANUKKAH Too!!

Oh, another great one!

Sorry, but isn't this fun?!?!

And yes, it is sad that nothing much has changed in Africa. It's so sad to watch everything going on there knowing there's not much individually we can do. One thing for Bush is that he helped Africa a lot.

Oh a more upbeat note though - here's a silly Christmas song - Rudolph!!! You can't have Christmas without Rudolph leading the way.

LOVE RUDOLPH Nicofan!!! (and yes, this is alot of fun )I expected the Burl Ives version but that was the original Gene Autry version I think the cartoon is on tomorrow night (on ABC)-Although I will be watching the Christmas at Rocerfeller Center on NBC becuase David Cook is suppose to be on (I can watch Rudolph later since we have the video )

Oh, and did you get your tree up yet Nicofan?

Both!!! But if I can only have one then it would be rich (or richer anyway ) If I was rich then I wouldn't have to wish for someone to decorate for me, I could just pay someone to do it

Oh, I forgot Nicofan-Helping in Africa was a good thing Bush did-about the only thing-but a very important thing.

Re: It's That Time Of Year Again-It's CHRISTMAS Time! And HANUKKAH Too!!

I love that song Sparko.

The main things about christmas though is watching Home Alone and Jingle All The Way. Awesome films that are shown every year at christmas time. Must admit I was a little disheartened by last years Christmas Day television but I'm sure this year will be better. Putting the Christmas tree up on Saturday which will no doubt be a lot of fun.

Christmas is awesome.

Re: It's That Time Of Year Again-It's CHRISTMAS Time! And HANUKKAH Too!!

Welcome Jaztheman. And especially welcome to someone who loves Christmas!

I love watching Home Alone I and II at Christmas time too. It wouldn't be Christmas without them. Those and of course It's a Wonderful Life. I've never seen Jingle All the Way - I'll have to watch it this year.

Sparko - I should have posted the Burl Ives one instead...what was I thinking? And thanks for the heads up on Rudolph on TV tonight.

I would like to be rich too. (Though I can't say I like rich people too much. ) Then I could do what I love all day long: read and watch tennis.

And the Christmas tree goes up tonight.

Oh and forgot - I probably won't watch Rockefeller Center because it always makes me feel bad that they kill a tree just for one season. It is pretty though.

Welcome fellow Christmas enthusiasts Jaztheman! I love "Home Alone"! Like Nicofan I've never seen "Jingle all the Way" either but I will have to now Have fun putting your tree up Sat! And Nicofan,you have fun tonight

I will assume your tree is artificial Nicofan We always get real trees- but unlike those really big ones, they grow these on farms just for sale at Christmas so it doens't bother me (otherwise I am tree hugger )

Side note: This is funny-just now on a local morning news show, they just interviewed a tree farm owner and he said tree farms are like oxygen factories

Haha, there's lots of us Christmas lovers around, it Just seems that the non-Christmas lovers are growing! We better keep spreading the love.

Home Alone I and II are Just awesome films. They have something about them that never make them old and no matter how many times you watch them they Just seem more and more awesome. Jingle All The Way has Arnold Shwarzaneger in it so it is automatically fantastic, so I'd definitely recommened it this Christmas.

Don't know whether I have seen It's A Wonderful Life, but I'll look out for it this year. Cheers for the heads up.

Lol yep you're right, you've gotta see it. Oh and of course I'll have fun putting up my Christmas tree - the novelty never wears off!

Tree farms are like oxygen factories?

Also cheers for the welcome, guys.

Re: It's That Time Of Year Again-It's CHRISTMAS Time! And HANUKKAH Too!!

My tree is artificial...but it still looks nice. I'm kind of a nut when it comes to trees - just like Christmas, I love them. (I'm sure there are those who say I'm a bit of a nut about more than trees and Christmas but that's besides the point. ) I'm definitely a tree hugger.

Hmmm...tree farms as oxygen factories? I don't like the idea, but they may have a point. Supposedly forestry including tree cutting can be good. Just hate the idea of cutting down a poor little innocent harmless tree.

Jaztheman - if you like old movies, you'll like It's a Wonderful Life. Jimmy Stewart and Donna Reed. Also if you like to cry at movies, because I always cry at the end...big time.

I love Arnold so I'll definitely rent Jingle All The Way.

I like some old films so I probably will like it, hopefully. About the crying bit though... I think you're on your own there!

Kindergarten Cop + Jingle All The Way = Arnold Heaven

Re: It's That Time Of Year Again-It's CHRISTMAS Time! And HANUKKAH Too!!

The sign of a great movie is if you cry at some point of the movie. That's how I rate chick flicks...if I don't cry, it doesn't get high marks.

And I love Kindergarten Cop - one of my favorite movies of all time. (Even though I didn't cry once during the film. ).

The Christmas tree is up!!! I started working on it as soon as I got home.

I listened to Il Divo's Christmas CD while I was putting it up so here is Il Divo singing my favorite Christmas song of all: O Holy Night
