Merry Boxing Day 2019

Posted in Just something to say, Pictures with tags , , , , , , , on December 26, 2019 by getbent57

I hope everyone had a fun and safe Christmas.  Mine was a big difficult with the resent loss of a family member.  Did our best to keep up with traditional.  As all ways the food was awesome.  There was even enough left over for today.  Made sure to make extra dressing.  The weather was very nice, a bit of sun and no wind.  After eating spent the day listening to the radio.  In the evening watched three movies.

A Garfield Christmas Special

Continuing the Christmas must watch list.  Next up is, A Garfield Christmas Special.  This is a classic I watch every year.  Some people have to watch the Frosty and Rudolph old stop motion.  They call them classic.  Not for me.  Garfield is a thousand times better.  So if missed out on it on TV you can give it a watch > > here or below.

Christmas is getting closer.  Time to start watching some of my all time favourite specials.  One of them is A Muppet Family Christmas.  This one makes me smile very time.  “Careful of the icy patch”, cracks me up.  Have shared this video for years now.  Am still surprised it’s still on YouTube.  Am very happy its still there.  So, go watch this classic > here or below.

A Christmas Story

Time is running short I have yet to watch my all time favourite movie, A Christmas Story.  Most years watch it two to three times.  Not much in the Christmas mood this year.  That being said my be once I watch this again it might do the trick.  There are people I know who have ever seen this.  I tell them it’s a must watch classic.  They seem to think the whole movie is about a BB gun.  Tell them that only a small plot point.  Then tell them that this is the most realistic family to ever be in a movie or TV.

Christmas Tree 2019

The first Sunday (which was yesterday) is traditionally the day we put up your Christmas Tree.  This year is much different.  There is one less person around to help.  So now it’s all up to me.  Was hard at first but got thought it.  Forgot at first we had a one string of white lights.  Looks a bit odd.  However still think it turned out ok.

I hope everyone had a fun and safe Christmas.  The weather here was fine.  Not too cold and little wind.   As all ways the food was amazing.  All so as all, ways ate a bit too much.  Thankfully there are many leftovers for today.  Spent most of the day relaxing and listen to Christmas music.  Then some TV specials.

I want to wish everyone and their families a Merry Christmas.  I hope everyone has the best one ever.  Eat till you can’t eat any more.  That is all ways the best part.  There is all ways something about Christmas dinner where you have to go back for thirds.

Another Christmas special I just have to watch every year is, A Garfield Christmas Special.  This is a must see classic.  It has been YouTube for a few years now so there is no reason not to watch it.  Not sure How many times I see this but it cracks me up every time in one spot.  Time is running out on watching Christmas specials.  You can see Garfield > here or below.

Loreena_McKennitt_A_Midwinters_Night_DreamThis is the last Christmas themed musical throwback Thursday.  Wanted to picked one that I like that you don’t hear that often.  The song is Good King Wenceslas.   This is the Loreena McKennitt version from her album A Midwinter’s Night Dream.  Like most Christmas carols there are some great versions out there hidden behind many crappy ones.  This is one of the bests version I found.  Give it a listen > here or below.
