I did something today I have never done before.... I watched "Miracle on 34th Street"!! I know it makes me sound like a freak of nature, but seriously, I have never seen this movie. Let me give a little set up on the challenges I had just to see it... This weekend, I had planned to have our family watch a Christmas Classic together. I picked "Miracle on 34th Street" because it is supposed to be a classic, right?? I had told Steve and the girls about the plans and the girls were very excited - (probably because I told them we would be wearing our Santa hats and eating popcorn and treats). Steve, not so much, 'cause he told me he had already seen the movie (he is more cultured than I am, ya know).
Back to the planning... I thought I would be able to get the movie using the OnDemand service from Charter Communication, but yesterday as I searched and searched, I found out that it wasn't available through OnDemand. What the heck? I did find that one of the regular network channels would be showing it on Saturday, December 13th; however, I needed it for Sunday afternoon! I thought about renting the movie, but then thought "what if we want to make this an annual family tradition?" So end result... we now own the DVD! So, if you also have waiting and waiting to see "Miracle on 34th Street", you can borrow it from me.
As long as I am confessing... I also have never watched "A Christmas Story" or "It's a Wonderful Life". Are those really classics? Be honest. Now, before you think that I am a Christmas scrooge or something... I have seen "A Charlie Brown Christmas", "A Christmas Carol", "How the Grinch Stole Christmas", "Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer" & "Polar Express" to name a few.
One more confession... I only have 4 Christmas music CD's... Is that wrong? Please feel free to add any Christmas Confession that you have been secretly harboring.
