Xmas is here...

Well, Christmas Eve anyway. And there IS something special about Christmas Eve that makes it stand out more than any other day in the year, even more than "the big day" itself. Bill Murray (who else?) puts it best:

With this being the last post here before Xmas happens, I'd just like to say a MASSIVE thank you to everyone who's been following this thing since it started in July. Anyone who's commented on it or just looked at it, and obviously ANYONE can "do a blog", but... I'm still grateful, really.

So, in keeping with the season - join in!

Sing some songs:

Have some parties:

Be NICE for a change (or nicer than usual, if you're already nice):

Remember who your friends are (and that's ALL the time, not just at this time of year):

And overall, have a smashing Christmas:



  1. That's exactly the clip from Scrooged I was looking for! I couldn't find it. His speech is probably one of the most powerful and most affecting moments in cinematic history.

  2. Weird but I could never really get into Calvin and Hobbes. I'm sure it's brilliantly written and drawn and intelligent and all that but it just seems remorselessly cold and solemn to me.

    1. I'll agree that it's definitely something you have to be "in the mood" for, and works a lot better when you read it in big chunks. Once you're familiar with the characters, strips like the one posted above have a LOT more meaning to them.

      I used to feel a similar way about Peanuts - just seeing the odd strip I wouldn't know what all the fuss was about, preferring the cartoons instead, but when a whole afternoon's spent reading them... A whole different story then!
