THIRTEEN FAVORITE HOLIDAY SPECIALS
.
First off: Happy Thanksgiving, Robyn and everybody (Robyn popped by earlier, so she is honored like the goddess she is)!
Now: Yes, folks, it's time for that season to begin. Not shopping like madfolk, not drinking eggnog until you puke, not even singing carols from door to door (does anybody do this anymore?) No, it's the season for TV Christmas Specials (squee!).
Yes, I'm totally queer, and I love my Christmas Specials. Can't help it. They were staples of my childhood that have hung on into adulthood; I get way excited when they are on (even though some of them are on 24/7 now, it seems).
So, without further adieux(and with a little trivia thrown in for fun):
.
1. A Charlie Brown Christmas. TRIVIA: What does Lucy Van Pelt really want for Christmas?
.
2. Rudolph The Red-Nosed Reindeer. TRIVIA: What is Herbie the Elf's preferred career?
.
3. Frosty The Snowman. TRIVIA: Who narrated this cartoon classic?
.
4. Santa Claus Is Comin' To Town. TRIVIA: Who is Kris Kringles main squeeze?
.
5. A Year Without A Santa Claus. TRIVIA: What brothers control the weather?
.
6. A Christmas Story. TRIVIA: What does Ralphie want for Christmas? (the whole description if you can remember!)
.
7. It's A Wonderful Life. TRIVIA: What was Mary & George's favorite song?
.
8. A Garfield Christmas. TRIVIA: Who sings the cool, jazzy songs throughout?
.
9. How The Grinch Stole Christmas. TRIVIA: How many sizes did the Grinch's heart grow?
.
10. National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation. TRIVIA: What was waiting for Clark in the Christmas tree?
.
11. Home Alone. TRIVIA: When Kevin set up his fake Christmas party to fool the theives, what song was playing?

I'm so glad you posted the answers, because I didn't get one single one right, unless you count "gun" for number six. I did guess 3 for number nine, but that was pure luck!
