A Christmas Story Christmas

Posted in Just something to say with tags , , , , , , , , , , on January 24, 2022 by getbent57

It might be a bit last or really early depending on how you look at it.  My all time favourite movie, A Christmas Story, is getting a real sequel.  There have been other sequels and spin offs.  Like a Summer Story, A Christmas Story Live and A Christmas Story 2.  What is interesting about his new one called, A Christmas Story Christmas, is that the main actor who played Ralphie (Peter Billingsley) is coming back.  According to IMDB the plot is, “Follows Ralphie, now adult, who returns to the house on Cleveland street to give his kids a magical Christmas like the one he had as a child, reconnecting with childhood friends, and reconciling the passing of his Old Man.”  Will be keeping my eye on this.  It could be really great.

I hope everyone had a fun and safe Christmas.  We had a nice quit one.  Just like last year cooked the turkey breast with olive oil and it turned out amazing.  Didn’t making my homemade stuffing.  Went with Stove Top.  It is better than I though it would be.  However did have homemade rolls from a local bakery, which were really good.  For tonight we are having the traditional hot turkey sandwiches.

It will be a much different Christmas like last year.  We will get though it as long as people play by the rules.  I want to wish everyone and their families a Merry Christmas.  I hope everyone has the best they can.  Still  planning on having a great meal.  MERRY CHRISTMAS EVERYONE.

A Garfield Christmas Special

I know I blog about this every year, Garfield Christmas Special.   That is because it is one of the few specials that I like to watch every year.  Know matter how many times I see it, it still makes me smile.  A classic for sure.  You can give it a watch > here or below.  There is not too many days left so need to watch a few more.

As I am typing this (December 11, 2021)  there are long two weeks left till Christmas.  I haven’t watched any specials or movies that I like yet.  Not really into that this year.  However I must find the time to watch A Christmas Story.  This is my all time favourite movie.  Not sure how many times I have seen it and it never gets old.  Own it on DVD and Blu-ray.  Choose the DVD every time because that one the mistakes are still all there.

Christmas Tree 2021

It has been the rule in the house of a very long time that the first Sunday in December (which is today December 5, 2021) we put the tree up.  This year remember buy all new sets of lights.  Got those back in November.  These new ones do make a difference, much brighter.  Have put up this tree and the past ones for so many years it doesn’t take long.  Like last year didn’t put as many ornaments on.  Think it turned out good.

I hope everyone had a fun and safe Christmas with the crazy times we are in.  The weather here was very mild.  As for the dinner, must say it turned out really well.  Cooked a turkey breast with olive oil.  It made it taste awesome.  Didn’t have homemade rolls last year.  This time managed to get some from a local bakery.  Since it is boxing day hot turkey sandwiches are one the menu tonight.

A Christmas Story

Not sure how many times I have blogged about the all time favourite movie, A Christmas Story.  But doing it again.  Last year was a bit late than usual at watching it.  Most years try to see it three to four times.  So my next day off plan to start my Christmas movie/TV favourites watching.  There are a bunch that I like to watch.  If you have stopped by this blog in past Decembers you might know what they are.  But if not will be sharing them in future posts.
