Vintage Christmas Classics

 No christmas is complete without a Christmas Movie. So today I thought i'd make a list (and check it twice) of my all time favourite Christmas Movies and Shows. 

Numero Uno hands down is The Christmas Story, directed by Anne Wheeler. Who doesn't love the leg lamp! Here's a clip...

Next of course is the unforgettable Grinch that evil, so evil green piece of nastiness whose heart was two sizes too small.

And the inspiration for the green meanie Good Old Ebineezer Scrooge.
Thankfully they both bounced back from their Miserly Ways. I like the 1938 classic version best.

And last but not least, the classic Charlie Brown Christmas in which Charlie Brown discovers that the true meaning of Christmas lies in in the oldest story of all, the celebration of the birth of Jesus.

and so I bid you all A Very Merry Christmas!  May you spend it in the loving arms of family and friends, and if you can't may you be the family or friend of someone who has none.

I'll be taking a break over the next couple of weeks, See you in early January, HO, HO, HO!

A Very Merry Vintage Christmas To You

A Very Merry Vintage Christmas to all Who Celebrate. I'm in a very Christmas mood today as it's snowing for the first time this year (and most likely the last) here in Lotus Land. We rarely get snow at or on Christmas so when it does snow I like to be out in it. So while I'm out I'll leave you with some Vintage Christmas images to use for gift wrapping. (If these don't print properly just google "free printable vintage Christmas images" and you'll be amazed what comes up) Don't forget to think re-use for your gift giving this year, protect the future, preserve the past.
