OK -

To me it doesn't really look like Christmas until there is snow on the ground.

I was born and raised in MN, but moved to AZ because I wanted to live in the southwest (that was 28 years ago).

Snow here in AZ is a very local thing, and I haven't seen it it years, I still miss that blanket of white snow that always defined Christmas morning for me...

Merry Chistmas to you all -
Terry

A Christmas Story?
That fucking anti-gun piece of shit movie.
This was hashed out LAST year and it was voted as anti-gun propaganda.

A Charlie Brown Christmas, Rudolf the Red Nose Reindeer and The Grinch Who Stole Christmas. But now I've added a few things.

It's Not Really Chrstmas Until...

1. I've seen National Lampoons Christmas Vacation (ahhh Beverly D'Angelo), A Christmas Story (poosbily the best Christmas movie ever made) and A Christmas Carol (The Alister Sims 1950s version).

Still a fine bit of cinema. I like it. I like Beverly D'Angelo too. And the wife w/toys? I think Aug has got this one down pretty well.

Damm, I missed the anti-gun message in A Christmas Story. Guess I'll have to pay more attention next time I watch it!! The kid and the Dad were pro-gun and they won.

Okay, he's cut off.  He's officially spent too much time in front of the computer screen.  Pipe down soldier!

"He laid there like a slug...it was his only defense"

And for the record...Beverly D'Angelo was smokin' hot.[naughty]

Some of you guys are a fucking joke. Do you really sit locked in your basement with a list of 10,000 foods you won't eat because of their anti gun association watching only Red Dawn all day because all other movies are hollywood anti gun bullshit?

Bowling For Columbine is a deliberately anti gun movie.

A Christmas Story is just a movie.

Note the difference, adjust.

It seems, given a sufficent amount of time, some people will deem every movie that comes out as anti-gun. A buddy of mine actually thinks Blackhawk Down as anti-gun movie. Look at all the killings. The horror.

Since I don't normally shop the malls very much during the year until Christmas time, it's not Christmas until I head out shopping for gifts for other people and end up buying myself more stuff than I buy friends and relatives.

As I was growing up, I did watch those first three shows on tv too, but it wasn't really Christmas then, until I got out of school for the holiday.

ACS is the funniest Christmas movie ever (with a close second to Christmas Vacation:
"We were shitting bricks.."
"Honey, you shouldn't use that word"
"Sorry, Uncle Clark...Shittin' Rocks..")

Funny Funny Shit.

And I see no "anti-gun" message in ACS other than those that are against Ralphie having his blue Steel beauty are irrational and silly, offering no GOOD reason for him not to have one other than their own silly and unfounded fears, much like modern day antis.

In the end, though, he gets his gun, doesn't shoot his eye out, and the movie ends with him cradling his gun as he sleeps peacefully, recounting that it wa sthe greatest Christmas gift he would ever recieve.

Where the hell is the anti gun in that???????

I agree with Steyr..there are gonna be a shitload of starving, naked and bored people that boycott everything on earth because they somehow see that it's "anti gun".

Save your efforts for those that pose a real threat, like Michael "Piece of watery fetid steaming vomitous dog shit" Moore and the Brady Bunch,  not for some straw-man kids movie.


Oh, and, the scene on the playground with the kid sticking his tongue to the flagpole is absolutely one of the best scenes to ever grace the silver screen.

Well I guess I'm a moron too because I find it as pro-gun as it gets. Come on, they edited the gun out of ET & it had nothing to do with guns. A Christmas Story is all about the gun, ask anybody and a Red Rider BB Gun is the first thing that comes to mind, then you have the good old ass wooping that Ralphy puts on the neighborhood bully, the 'F' word, Ralphy shooting crooks. Man, that whole damn movie is about growing up like a man not some Metrosexual.If I don't see an anti-gun message, %98 of the other American morons like myself have to see it the same way.

Its not Christmas for me until I:
1 Feel like killing everyone in the stores that I am just trying to find and buy a CD.

2 Go insane from all the spoiled yuppie kids screaming at the top of their lungs in a store (usually followed by 7 more kids doing the same)

3 When the reality sets in that I have a very tight budget and barely afford all I can to get other people.

As a matter of fact I am locked in my pretend bunker right now defending my high school yearbook (Marmets!!) eating Snak-Pac pudding.
Red Dawn in playing on my computer.

Any questions?

[u]Memories:[/u]

Snow, iced sidewalks, packing [u]THE[/u] "Perfect" snowball, snowdrifts higher than the roof, bumper-hitching...

gray/black snow piled along the streets, nostrils freezing closed as you inhale your first breath of -15F air, the taste of icicles, the sting of getting cracked over the head with a 1.5" diameter icicle by your older brother...

watching snowflakes fall outside from the warmth of your Christmas-decorated living room, slush, the "thump" of [u]THE[/u] "Perfect" snowball hitting the side door of a passing car, the adrenaline rush as the driver jumps out and runs after you...


[u]Movies/Shows:[/u]

"Merry Christmas Charlie Brown"
"A Christmas Story"
"Natl Lampoon Christmas Vacation"
"How The Grinch Stole Christmas" (not the Jim Carrey garbage)
"A Christmas Carol"


[u]Music:[/u]

Living Strings [rolleyes]
George Winston
Manheim Steamroller
Tijuana Brass (anyone know this one?)
Narada
Any version of "Greensleeves"
