    OMG y'all, Lifetime's Holiday High School Reunion was brilliant. Watch it. Live it.

    I had never watched the original Walton's movie with Patricia Neal and saw it recently. I was moved by the love in that family and John-boy's Christmas gift and the humor as well ( the recipe!) I wonder if young folks today (who have so much) could relate to a story of folks who live frugally out of necessity and do so happily.

    Miracle on 34th Street. The original Tonight. It just started here. My only complaint is it's the colorized version.

    So we watched the Hallmark Hall of Fame premier tonight (Christmas with Holly): Generally these romantic Christmas movies are more miss than hit with me but I enjoyed this film. Maybe it was the three men and little lady theme coupled with the setting--nothing earth shattering just a nice way to spend a couple of hours.

    Christmas in Connecticut just came on after Miracle on 34th St. It's late but CiC is one of the mlp essential holiday films. Christmas doesnt happen if I dont see it.

    AACK!! I adore that movie mlp and can't believe I missed it!!!

    Heads up fellow Canadians...Grinchy Pooh*** and Max are on tonight at 8pm on the CBC and they're followed by Frosty and his friends trying to get him back to the North Pole before he melts. :D

    ***Don't ask. I allegedly called him that when I was three or four and it's stuck ever since in this house. :0 :D

    Did anyone catch the new Bublé special last night? I thought the first one from a year or two ago was only so-so: pretty good music but lame in-between stuff. I recorded the new one last night but don't know when I'll get a chance to watch.

    Thanks for the info. I set the autotune for "Remember the Night"! :) AMC is showing "A Christmas Carol" December 16th from 7 - 9:30 p.m. (central), 8 - 10:30 p.m. (eastern).

    Which version? Please tell me it's the 1951 Alistair Sim version. Probably not. AMC usually shows the Reginald Owen version.
