Hollmann Holiday Extravaganza: IT BEGINS

You're still here, are you?

Yes, it's been an unusually long absence -- my last post was a full month and ten days ago -- but oh! The things I have been doing! Working long hours (even Thanksgiving) at my current place of employment, catching up with all the films out in theaters (or on DVD), keeping abreast of the awards season, watching the films of 1957 for my next Oscar Series (even that was delayed as Tammy and the Bachelor sat unwatched for a week and a half). It's been a month of blood, sweat and tears, but December is here and I am ready to embrace the Holiday Season.

Yes, I'm a few days late, but I've always tried to keep the tradition of Hollmann Holiday Extravaganza alive! This year, join me celebrating my favorite time of year with some stories, music and (oh, of course) MOVIES.

Consider this an overture:

Christmastime is here
Happiness and cheer
Fun for all, what children call their favorite time of year

Snowflakes in the air
Carols everywhere
Olden times and ancient rhymes of love and dreams to share

Sleighbells in the air
Beauty everywhere
Yuletide by the fireside and joyful memories there

Christmastime is here
Families drawing near
Oh that we could always see such spirit through the year

Oh that we could always see such spirit through the year.....

Hi Walter!! We watched "A Charlie Brown Christmas" on TV last night...Snoopy still made me giggle, as did the lone ornament on the tree. I still use the phrase "Charlie Brown Tree" for any small scrawny trees I see.

I'm looking forward to your views on some of the films you have been seeing.

And 1957...An interesting movie year....Should be fun!
