Super Christmas Post

On Friday night, my parents and I went to see a production of A Christmas Carol at Hartford Stage. It was really well acted. This version had some interesting aspects to it. One: Scrooge's housekeeper was a transvestite. In fact, the same actor played Jacob Marley... Two: While the Ghosts of Past and Present were how we have come to expect them to look, the Ghost of Christmases Yet To Come wasn't a Grim Reaper type. He was a guy in a top hat and sunglasses riding a funky tricycle. My mother accurately described it as "Tim Burton-inspired."

Yesterday, we had the Christmas Pageant at my church. We did the traditional Nativity story this year after letting the kids write something different last year. The best part of the play was watching was watching our preschool kids as sheep. The best part of the whole experience, however, was not having to be in it myself...

Yesterday afternoon, my father and I went out to get the tree. It's now up and decorated! Woo Hoo!

Last night, we watched, for the first time, The Santa Clause II. Um, what can one say about this film? The whole dupicate ruining Christmas angle was not needed at all and should have been removed to allow more time and beleiveablity to the main storyline. Also, his son acting out because he can't tell people his father is Santa makes me want to smack him upside the head with a bag of toys...

Bah Humbug.
