Ed’s intro: As a boy-now-man brought up by a poor, two-job working amazing single mom, I’m kinda proud of this post. If we’d had this when I was young, it would have helped a present-less Christmastime. Still, we were full of love, and books, and that was a rich life!

It’s time to gather together with those we love, make some (organic, local) popcorn with olive oil or whatever we heart (what’s your fave) and good salt and cozy up in lovely old blankets with our dog and/or cat and get movie-and-play watching. Here’s a few for those of us strapped for cash, or who just want easy access to some family favorites.

Nutcracker: a wonderful family tradition worth seeing in person, if you can.

  1. […] It’s the holiday season and everyone loves to indulge, but no one enjoys the consequences of overeating. Over the years, I refined a recipe for a scrumptious and satisfying raw chocolate fudge that my guests rave about without feeling an ounce of remorse. Better yet, it takes five minutes or less to mix the ingredients, and only about an hour to harden in the fridge. […]

    These were all just wonderful! I watched a few earlier today with some of my DISH coworkers and it really got us into the spirit of Christmas. I’ve been streaming even more Christmas movies through my DISH Hopper’s Blockbuster @Home app, and it’s been lovely since it just started snowing outside! I’m so glad that I can relax in doors and have a plethora of holiday titles to choose from, and I don’t have to shovel any snow to do so. Thanks and Happy Holidays!

    I'd add Jim Henson's ~ Emmit Otter's Jug Band Christmas. Great story, great music. Timeless.

    I don't have a television so this is a gift. I've missed the usual Christmas shows and now, thanks to you, I have great holiday shows to watch. Merry Christmas and Happy 2013!!!

    Merry Christmas Waylon, thanks for the suggestion, I´ll make sure to watch a couple with my cats!

    Wonderful collection! I was planning to (mildly) complain if the Alastair Sim A Christmas Carol (originally released as "Scrooge") wasn't here, but of course it was!
