TODAY'S FEATURE - Blog #3566:
It's starting to feel like Christmas around here... Which is hard to do sometimes living in the San Diego area, with no snow!
But Tina LoSasso, Vinnie, and I watched the colorized version of my favorite Christmas film, "It's a Wonderful Life" on Saturday night, and then we went to my folks on Sunday for our 'Christmas' celebration, as Vinnie will be with his mother during the Christmas Day weekend.
Of course, Tina has her own favorite Christmas film, a 1964 film titled: 'Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer', which a scene from it is shown in the top left of this blog post! Plus I started off the text here with an ad from 1964 advertising it!
Here is the Wikipedia entry as to the background on the film, which seems to be shown every year also on TV!
Around our house, it isn't Christmas until we have seen both of those films, plus Tina's other favorite... 'How The Grinch Stole Christmas'! Tina can almost recite the entire dialogue of that one... line by line!
Of course, it wouldn't be a comic book blog without a reference to comic books... So I'm including one of the dozen Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer Comics from DC Comics that were published from 1950 - 1962, as seen here!
I have to get ready to make a drive to see my Great Uncle Howard, who thankfully has been discharged from the hospital after a second surgery, and has been transferred to a rehab center. So this is a short blog post this morning.
But I wanted to share with you on how we prepare for Christmas around here... Of course with comic books as part of the preparations!
Merry Christmas & Happy Holidays to You!
