Merry Christmas Eve!

I posted this last year and have updated it to include a few more classics:

Hope you get to enjoy your day with loved ones and family.

I’ll be watching a few classics such as those above. Feel free to add clips of your favorites!

Can’t improve on that list DCG. Love both It’s A Wonderful Life, and Christmas Story.
Merry Christmas to Dr E and all!

I don’t have the link, but I would heartily recommend “Boys Town” starring Mickey Rooney & Spencer Tracey. It is not a Christmas movie per se, but it is a story of redemption, of the protagonist Whitey Marsh and Fr. Flannagan’s struggle to do God’s Work in the face of tremendous odds. Far from being corny, I remember it as a truly uplifting movie. I went to Boys Town for my freshman year in high school, from 1970 to 1971. Although I hated every minute of it while I was there, Boys Town provided me more than adequate care while… Read more »

I continue to pray for you, Stephen. I’ve always wanted to see Boy’s Town, but never got around to it. Will have to track it down. I always watch White Christmas with Bing Crosby. I love the Florida scenes, because it reminds me of my young adulthood in Florida. Christmas in Florida sure beats Christmas in Oregon. Two other Christmas classics I love are Christmas in Connecticut and The Bishop’s Wife with Cary Grant.

A Merry Christmas and joyful New Year to you, too, DCG! And to all the FOTMers.

‘SCROOGE’, the musical starring Albert Finney, is by far – and I mean, BY FAR(!!!) my favorite version of ‘A Christmas Carol’. In fact, it’s one of my Top Ten favorite movies of all time. And as far as Christmas movies go, I rate it just half a smidgen behind ‘It’s A Wonderful Life’. Maybe not even half a smidgen, but just a quarter of a smidgen.

Bless And Be Blessed!

My favorite version of “A Christmas Carol” is the 1951 movie with Alastair Sim. My second favorite is the 1938 movie with Reginald Owen. There have been 25 versions of “A Christmas Carol”, including some animation, since 1901. Merry, merry Christmas!

I’d like to share a new (for me) Christmas tradition, adopted from my honorary Polish family. It is called Optatki (pwah-tek) The Polish Christmas tradition of Optatki (Christmas wafer) supposedly dates back 1000 years. The breaking of bread is a sign of charity, unity, and fellowship. The wafer is blessed by the eldest family member, offering a prayer for Gods’s grace and blessing for health, happiness and forgiveness. Each person shares their Optatki with every other person present and wishes them a joyous Christmas. What I find especially appealing is that there is also a smaller wafer for the animals… Read more »

there is a moment in White Christmas that always brings a tear. Bing Crosby brings his old war buddies together to help their General, who protected them in battle, and was now failing in business. The General enters the room, as the soldiers march out and sing “because we love him, because we love him …. ”

That was my dad’s generation. Men didn’t talk like that, but if they did, it would be tapping a deep deep well

I want to add a little movie I had never seen until now. A short little movie that is a pilot for a series ….The Chosen: The Shepherd
About the Shepherds in the FIeld, the reason for the season. Knocked my socks off

DCG, I’m not trying to play Scrooge, however I was a little surprised at your compilation here. This website seems to be religiously based, or at least inspired, so I was shocked at the clips you included above. Certainly Christmas is one of the most important events in all of history, not a joke nor an event to be mocked or belittled. These clips belittle the birth of Christ our savior. At least the first one with Jimmy Stewart starts with the song “Hark the Herald Angels Sing,” a song which celebrates Christ’s birth. The rest are filled with secular… Read more »
