UNK SEZ: Christmas is right around the corner and the kindertrauma Castle is still not fully decorated. I’m off to see how many blinking lights I can buy with a dollar seventy five. Thankfully our Good pal Mickster has graciously volunteered to host today’s festivities. Mickster has selected ten images from ten non-horror holiday films for you all. How many can you identify? Good Luck!
I *think* #1 is A Christmas Carol with George C. Scott, but I’m not sure…
And I want to say #9 is the Muppet Christmas Carol, but I have no proof of that!
Well, #2 is certainly A Christmas Story from the late, great Bob Clark. Merry Xmas, Bob!
#3 Appears to be National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation…a true classic!
4) Ernest Saves Christmas (that scene actually upset me a bit when I was an easily scared little one xD “Christmas Slays” indeed…)
5) It’s a Wonderful Life (I think…?)
8) Miracle n 34th Street?
…#7 doesn’t look familiar, but it does look quite unsettling… I wonder what it is…
…double checking, I think I’m very wrong about 5 & 8… agh, too early, eyes not adjusted enough…
Yay! Thanks for everyone participating so far…
#1 A Christmas Carol-You are right Amanda!
#2 A Christmas Story-Walter nails it with a bb gun!
# 3 Christmas Vacation-Debbie knows her Griswolds!
#4 Ernest Saves Christmas-LiterateDead knows Christmas Slay!
#9 Muppet Christmas Carol-Amanda is on a roll!
#7 appears to my wondering eyes to be
Meet Me in St. Louis- I can hear that awful, depressing Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas and the crying little sister is (spoiler) about to get her snowfamily smash on.
#7 Meet Me in St. Louis-Arthur can see Judy Garland depressing poor little Margaret O’Brien!
Interesting trivia fact: The original lyrics to Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas were EVEN MORE DEPRESSING!
IS # 6 Night of the Hunter? I think seven is Jack Frost.
Quote hints for the remaining pictures:
#5-Is your names Miss Linda?
#6-Boys and girls and music. Why do they need gin?
#8-If that’s normal, I don’t want it!
#10- Mutual, I’m sure.
#10 is White Christmas
6-IT’S A WONDERFUL LIFE
8-MIRACLE ON 34TH STREET
Hi Mickster! Number 5 is Holiday Inn with Bing Crosby and Fred Astaire. I’m dreaming of a white Christmas!
Yay! All are identified!
#5 Holiday Inn-Saraeg knows the first movie to contain the song, White Christmas!
#6 It’s a Wonderful Life-Craig knows the wise-cracking housekeeper’s witty remark!
#8 Miracle on 34th Street-Craig is on a roll and knows Santa’s at Bellevue!
#10 White Christmas-Bigwig recognizes the bubble-headed blonde’s remark!
I hope everyone has a wonderful Christmas!
“Mutual, I’m sure!”:)
Massive mistletoe moment for Mickster!
And was not dissin’ Judy G, if you haven’t heard her live Purple People Eater, you hain’t lived!
Much love to Uncle Lancifer & Aunt John, who have given me my happy(horrible) place on the hinterwebz. Happy ChristmaKwannzAwinter solstiChannukah, kids!
Mickster is blowing you a kiss from beneath the mistletoe, Arthur!
Judy was awesome because as Jsusskind was kind enough to share, the song was even more depressing before Judy insisted they change it.
