A very Merry Christmas to all of you out there. I hope that whatever the season means to you and yours, it is filled with family, companionship and most importantly beer.
I am travelling interstate over the period (have been doing so for the best part of a couple of weeks actually) and will be spending the festive season in Victoria. Firstly in Beechworth with my fiancée’s family and then in Melbourne with (most) of my family.
One of the family traditions we have in my family is a movie or two on Christmas night. I have wrested control of the film choices away from my mother this year. I love my mother dearly, but she has a chequered history in terms of Christmas movie choices. Trailers for my two choices which I have specially bought brand spanking new blu-rays of are below. The first is, I think, universally regarded as a Chrissy classic. The second is in my opinion probably the most underrated adaptation of Dickens’ iconic A Christmas Carol.
Do you and yours have any Christmas movie traditions?
