  1. Here in Ireland the national TV featured a very creative younger-aged children’s interpretation in song and drama of the Christmas story as part of a Christmas Day Mass; and an Anglican high school student group wove the Dickens Christmas story into the meaning of the Christmas story in word and song also in RTE the national network..

  2. Here on our national TV station in Ireland we had two lovely Sunday worship experiences. At a Christmas Day Mass, children from a parish interpreted the Christmas story in a very creative way in song, drama and word. An Anglican high school wove the Dickens’ Christmas story into a service with the Christmas readings later. Delightful.

  3. In all seriousness, it just doesn’t feel like the Christmas season to me until Nakatomi Plaza blows up. I humbly acknowledge my personality defects. Merry Christmas to you and yours Larry.

  4. My favorite Christmas movie is Christmas Vacation.

    Favorite carol, Hark the Herald Angels Sing

    Favorite Christmas Special, Nine Lessons and Carols King’s College – MPR

    Favorite Christmas tradition, Oiled Angel Hair pasta with pine nuts and fried cod fish – baccala.

  5. Carol: Tu scendi dalle stelle (Writing by St Alphonsus Maria de Liguori, a doctor of the Catholic Church in 1744. It is sung at the end of Midnight Mass every year @ St. Peter’s
    Special: Rudolph the Red Nose Reindeer
    Movie: Scrooge (aka A Christmas Carol) The 1951 version
    Tradition: Meatless supper Christmas Eve, unfortunately lately I have had to sacrifice by not having calamari, no one carries it in DBQ these days

  6. I’m so glad I’m not the only one who likes the odd Christmas movie!

    Favourite carol: Veni, veni Emanuel

    Favourite Christmas special: The local school holiday concert. It’s Christmas-carol heavy, just how I like it. :)

    Favourite Christmas movie (tie): Donovan’s Reef (Lee Marvin in the three Kings scene rotfl) and Going My Way (elderly Irish mother + Christmas = pull out hankies)

  7. Forgot to add: Favourite tradition is going to Mass with family, then returning to open all our presents, one at a time, going from oldest (father) to youngest (great nephew)
