Wishing Upon a Christmas Star

Merry Christmas!!

I hope everyone is having an amazing day. And if you happen to make it to my site today, thanks for taking time out of your day to drop by.

I'm a big fan of Old Time Radio. There's just not much on modern television, if you ask me. I don't particularly think most current comedians are funny, and call me old fashioned, but I like wholesome entertainment. I listen to OTR many times throughout the week, and especially love the old Christmas episodes from some of the great old shows. One of which aired on December 25, 1939. It wasn't the first Disney submission to the Lux Radio Hour, but it was aired on Christmas day, and so I bring it to you now. I hope everyone enjoys it!

"Christmas night. Dinner is over and your sitting comfortably in your favorite chair beside the fireplace, gazing dreamily into the flames. You're relaxing for the first time today, and you've made a solemn resolution that nothing shall move you from this place for at least three hours. You won't be surprised if, at a time like this, that burnt ember on the hearth should move a little and sit up, for you've just noticed that it isn't an ember at all, it's a cricket. And not an ordinary cricket, either. He wears a beaver hat and a long green cutaway coat, and in his hand he carries a furled umbrella. He sits looking at you out of his large, rather mournful eyes, and then, just as if it were the most natural thing in the world, he begins to sing..."

Christmas smiles!

My apologies for not updating the blog in a few weeks. The holiday season has hit me hard and I've been crazy busy. I hope to get in a couple more posts before the year is out, however.

I've posted this already, but being that it's seasonal, I'm throwing it in again, just because the T. Hee drawing is so charming! This Santa and reindeer makes me smile, and I hope it makes you smile, too!

Merry Christmas, everyone! And Happy Holidays for those of you who don't celebrate it! :D It's a beautiful season for everybody!
