A White Christmas

Looks like we are going to have a white Christmas here in Connecticut. Mother Nature blessed us with about an inch of snow Christmas Eve morning.

White Christmas is one of my favorite Christmas movies. The plot has so many holes in it that you can drive a Sherman tank through it, but I love the songs and dances. The film even has a very lame femulation scene performed by Bing Crosby and Danny Kaye (I guess Bing and Danny were saving their femulating skills for other films.)

SundanceTV is having a White Christmas marathon as I write this on Christmas Eve and as luck would have it, when I turned on the television, they were showing the femulation scene!

My other favorite Christmas film is A Christmas Story. I was an early adopter of that film because I was a big fan of Jean Shepherd, whose stories were the basis of the film's plot (Jean was also a ham radio operator). I saw the film when it came out in 1983 and I recommended it to all my friends, but they looked at me as if I had lobsters crawling out of my ears.

The film also has a femulating scene when the main character, Ralphie, has to try on the Christmas present his Aunt Clara sewed for him. Problem is that Aunt Clara thinks that Ralphie is a girl and her Christmas gift is a girly bunny outfit. (I should be so lucky!)

I want to wish all my readers and contributors a very Merry Mary Christmas!

  1. Thank you Stana and if it is not too late, a Merry Christmas to you.


  2. No snow here in the UK
    Pity because when it is an inch or less deep there is an ideal oportunity to practice walking as a woman
    The footprints show what you are like

  3. What a wonderful Christmas greeting -- Stana, you look, as ever, terrific. And I agree with your movie choices (I loved Jean Shepard!). I'm glad you did not include Holiday Inn in your list. Despite those classic Irving Berlin songs and Crosby and Astaire, it never really held together, and even years ago as a kid I was turned off by the blackface routine.

  4. White Christmas is my wife's favorite Christmas movie. AMC theaters had special screenings of it in the theaters and I bought us tickets. Scored some serious spouse points with that one. Next month is The Wizard of Oz on the big screen.
