Here it is, Christmas Eve, and nothing on the work side of life seems to recognize that it's anything but just another day. And I suppose, really, that it is, only everyone in the working world except me seems to be taking off between noon and 2:00 today, including the good folks at the Water and Power Department whose option it is to turn off my Christmas lights if I don't hustle a money order over there in time this afternoon. Anyway, the window for completing my big pre-Christmas plans vis-a-vis this blog is inexorably shrinking, so on the off chance that I don't get another opportunity before the Hour of the Reindeer, I just want to wish you, dear SLIFR Reader, you, dear SLIFR Lurker, and all of your'n the very best of Christmas holiday seasons! Little Baby Jesus willing, I'll be back before the sunrise to fill your stocking with all manner of happy linkage and other fun stuff! Until then, please press "Play" above and enjoy this holiday classic, a favorite Christmas tune my family and I love to sing beneath the tree each year. (Three guesses whose part I take...)

And here's a Christmas Eve question for you: What's the ideal holiday movie for pouring a hot buttered rum, staying in and enjoying on this night?

"It's a Wonderful Life" one of my all time favorite holiday movies.

I was thinking an old cowboy like you might consider John Ford's Three Godfathers, starring John Wayne, Harry Carey Jr. and Pedro Armendariz. Got a copy handy? I was thinking of cracking mine open tonight!

It's fast becoming the new neo noir classic, The Ice Harvest.


Tonight THE FUTURIST! decided to let TCM do the honors and watched the Preston Sturges scripted Christmas holiday themed REMEMBER THE NIGHT (1940).

While the holiday is used as a symbol, I use to love seeing Christmas in July, which would play on late night network television, on Christmas Eve.

I usually just try to pick a theme and then run it into the ground. One year disaster movies, another gialli. This year I went with The Outer Limits.
