I don't know about you all, but I will be glad when the 'Holiday season' is over. I have a dinner to prepare today and then we get to eat left overs all week and then it is over!! I don't think I can stomach another Christmas show on the Halmark channel anymore. My Hubby has watched them all month and well last month too. He is a sucker for a happy ending. But all the Santa shows, enough already, there is just so many ways to re invent santa, how many ways can we make up how santa gets his groove on is beyond me but Halmark wins hands down on this!!
No I am not a Scrooge but that movie has been re invented about as many times as Santa has and I am frankly DONE with it. I CAN'T DO IT ANYMORE! Hey don't get me wrong I love Scrooge, it is my favorite Christmas story, but just how many of these shows are there? When I say there have been 20 Scrooge Stories on film, though, I’m talking about animated films for Children, silent movie shorts, modern adaptations and films loosely based on A Christmas Carol. If you want faithful, feature length live-action films that played on the big screen, there have been 7 such movies based on A Christmas Carol.Since the publication of A Christmas Carol, the story has never been out of print and has been adapted both for 22 stage productions, 2 operas, 4 recordings, at least 10 radio broadcasts, 49 loosely based tv show adaptations and 20 film versions. I am guessing here but I bet most of them have been on this past month!!!!!
I must have been a good girl this year because I got a new Lap top! my other one was about 7+ years old, I dropped it I don't know how many times and it banged around in the Truck when we were trucking and had many of the keys missing and the metal was wearing off on many of the vital areas. So that part of Christmas/Yule I liked, but now I have to figure out how to pay for the damn thing. LOL.
After New Years we go into the deep winter time and the big let down from coming out of Dec and the 2 months of Christmas cheer we were dragged into with all the TV shows out there showing how it all turns out good, at least if you are in the TV story, we all know that it seems not to work out all that good for the rest of us, but hey its nice to dream that it could. This is not meant to be a downer, hey I am Up, just tired of repeats. Hankering for something new .
I hope y'all are having a most spendid time this Holiday season and May your New Years be blessed.
