Old Christmas Specials

            Growing up, there was a lot of different Christmas Specials that I grew up with. I might not be able to mention all of them but here is a few on my list:

Merry Christmas Mr. Bean: It has been a yearly tradition for me to watch either closer to Christmas but normally is the last of the videos that I watch actually. I love the episode cause of the part where he puts the turkey on his head is hilarious! 

Charlie Brown Christmas: I know it's an old special and I remember it a a kid and watched it a few times during my childhood. Haven't seen it in years but a lot of great memories with it. I even have seen the one with Charlie Brown and the Great Pumpkin for Halloween and maybe I need to get back into those. 

Frosty The Snow Man: Another classic and actually near Christmas time they use to air these on Global TV or even CBC here in Canada. A classic indeed and also was a big part of my childhood.

The Grinch who Stole Christmas (Cartoon):This was a part of my Childhood also but also has become a part of my yearly tradition now as it is always on my list of movies and shows or episodes to watch during the Christmas Season.

Rudolph The Red Nose Reindeer: A classic song as well as a show that I watched growing up. Again when they aired it on one of the Canadian channels it was literally back to back near Christmas time.

              Anyways that is the post for today, big thank you to Bob for the suggestions and I have another posts suggested for tomorrow's post to wrap up any blogs for 2023! I am already ahead for blogs for 2024 already and have ideas flowing! Anyways talk tomorrow!

My Christmas 2017!

               First of all I gotta say, hope you all enjoyed your Christmas and had a wonderful holiday, I sure did, kind of odd but it was a good Christmas all together, also sorry I am late for this point. I would consider it more of a very quiet Christmas this year as it wasn't like any normal Christmas I have had in the past! This year with my mom's side of the family not doing our traditional get together on Christmas Eve but that's not the point, the point is my brother, sister in law, my niece and nephew, my parents and I got together for Christmas Eve and it was fun, just finger foods, drinks and a good time. The kids wanted to see Minecraft what I have been up to but since changed and reverted back to the old world I had when I ended my playthrough of the game. I got my gift early which was dress boots for when I go to church every week for the winter season. Also got 

                Now, Christmas Day, I got from my grandma, Hawaii 5-O Seasons 4, 5 & 6 from her, now I need seasons 2, 3 & 7. My mom and dad and I went to my grandma's, my mom's mom and my aunts and uncles who live close enough to come and visit joined in and we had a wonderful visit, we had some Quiches one with egg and ham, the other with egg and spinach in it which was quite tasty if you ask me and I enjoyed it. Oh I almost forgot to mention I got to see some of my aunt and uncle's cruise trip but not all the pictures of their trip which we will get to see in the new year at some point. We got back I tried the best I could watching Hawaii 5-O but I ended up napping for an hour and a half  to 2 hours and this week I gotta make an effort to catch up on all the TV Shows, so that was a fail and a half with catching up on Television TV Shows. 

                   So in the afternoon we went to my brother and sister in laws, for Christmas and I got to play the Playstation 3 with my Niece and Nephew and of course we played Minecraft which will be my post tomorrow Minecraft On PC or PS3? Which One Do I Prefer? but I have played video games on Playstation before but not minecraft but again, that will be on tomorrow's blog post. We played on the floor a bit, hide and go seek, yet my nephew and I were good hiders, haha. We had dinner which was turkey, ham, mash potatoes, home made perogies made from both potatoes and cheese and pork which I had the pork which was different but really good and I would like to learn how to do the pork ones actually. I opened my gifts I got Simpsons Christmas DVD, apron for cooking as my brother, sister in law, my niece and nephew and even my parents know I love cooking and I need to do it more often! Also got Star Wars Battlefront II which is NOT compatible with my computer, I'd had have to update my entire computer to a I5 core 6600 or higher so I do not want to since this one is running smoothly most of the time, knock on wood, haha! I will take the game back as I got a gift receipt for it. I got The Simpsons Movie but I have it so I will be getting something else other then that. I played a tad bit of the WIIU with my nephew but didn't last long, we had a late dessert of Apple Pie played with the kids a bit more then I ended up cuddling with my nephew as both are sick and he kept me warm as I was getting cold. Overall it was a quiet but fun Christmas and I needed yesterday to re-cooperate from Christmas.

Have a good afternoon!
