    Re: Christmas 2007

    There was a TV movie about 20 years ago called The Gathering. They used to run it every year but haven't been able to find it the last few years. It's not your run of the mill feel good Christmas movie as it deals with a man who has been given just a short time to live and wants to reunite his family (ex-wife, estranged children etc...) for his last Christmas. I loved this movie and it is impossible to get through without going through at least half a box of kleenex.

To this day, whenever I see that movie, it puts me in the holiday spirit.
    Home Alone and Home Alone 2 - Lost in New York are hilarious. The other ones without Culkin aren't so good
    - The Dean Martin Show -

    Yes, it's a Grisham Book. The movie is funny, but not nearly so much as the book.
    I have several books I like to read near Christmas. "Christmas Gift" by Ferrol Sams. It finally gave a reason to why my family has to yell "Christmas Gift" each and every Christmas morning. No one knew why before, only that we had "always done it". I like Grisham's Skipping Christmas. Now that I have A Christmas Story in its original form, I read that too. And probably one of THE funniest Christmas books I've ever read is "Christmas in Harmony" by Phillip Gulley. The progessive manager scene had me
    And of course, my very favorite is "The Night Before Christmas". My dad used to read it to me and then my daughter when we were small. I have my mom's copy from the 1930's, mine from the 1960's and my daughter's from the 1990's.

    I forgot about the Home Alone movies. The first and second ones are hilarious. I'm not into those sad Christmas movies. I don't need help crying at Christmas, so I just don't watch many Christmas movies.



    Gabriel this isn't a Christmas question, but since I know you know a bit about older movies, meet me in Koffee Klatch, I have a question.

    My favorite Christmas movie is...A Christmas Story, and any of the animated shows.

    Here's a few of the handmade cards I did this year. I made 30 cards total.
    Once I get into assembly line production mode, they go rather quickly, but I tend to get board and then start experimenting with different things. Not all turn out so well.

    I didn't think I would make so many this year, but I am hand delivering almost half of them to people at the museum and neighbors, etc.

    Thank you.

    Honestly, they don't take as long as you think. I set up the card table in front of the tv and I make all the components and assembly line them. I enjoy it, so it may take me longer than I think, but I'm having fun, so the time seems to go fast.

    It's one of the things I REALLY enjoy doing for special people at Christmas.
