I See Your Christmas and Raise you a Blog Post

Happy week of Christmas!

If you don’t celebrate Christmas, happy season of lights!

As promised last week, it is time for Lockbox Christmas fun.

Please join me for some observations about this time of year and some great videos from some great Christmas movies.


Starting sentimental and with Santa, who represents magic and goodness to me. This is a great movie.

Because, after all, a discussion of “Year without a Santa Clause” isn’t complete without these guys.


Why would you need to say “Sister Susie sitting on a thistle?”

Wrapping presents is not like riding a bike. Once you learn, you have to relearn every year, and only the very last present you wrap ends up looking like someone over the age of 10 wrapped it.

Dominic the Donkey is evil. That is all.

“The neighbors will think. Say, what’s in this drink?” There’s something very wrong with the song “Baby, It’s Cold Outside.”

“A child, a child shivers in the cold. Let us bring him silver and gold.” Um, what about blankets and food?

Did you know “I’ll be home for Christmas” had one of those “what the heck song is this” intros? Yeah, neither did I.


I just have one question. What was wrong with the doll?

At least Charlie from the last video would be safe.


And I end with a song I love from my all-time favorite Christmas movie—Muppet Christmas Carol. If this song doesn’t embrace the true spirit of the season, I don’t know what does. Please, have a wonderful week. If you celebrate, have a Merry Christmas. And no matter what, honor this time and keep its sentiments throughout the year. Happy Holidays!
