Last Chance Holiday Mixup!

I grew up in a mixed religion house: Menorahs and Christmas Trees sat side by side. My favorite holiday treat were TV specials; nothing, and I mean nuthin, would keep me away from those tv specials. (Hands down, the best was: “The Year Without a Santa Claus”). Light the candles... nope, not if Rudolph is on. To this day I can sing the lyrics of all the songs. Just a few weeks ago my sister-in-law Christine and I belted out the Heat Miser song while walking out of the Gorky (an absolute must!) exhibit at the Philadelphia Museum of Art. Spontaneously! Some people doing the Rocky run stopped and sang along. That stop motion cartoon was created in 1974! 1974! ..... nineteen seventy four!

So, what are your fond memories of childhood pop? Did you love the Heat Miser or did your heart squeeze for that dentist elf Perhaps it was Rudolph’s girlfriend.... What was her name?

Soon I will travel from Philly - running from a little Snow - to Christine’s home in New Orleans for a little Heat to create some holiday memories. My kids’ memories are filled with Po-boys from Domalise’s, beignets, linguine alle vongole, their cousins, and no snow. TV specials do not play into their traditions. How sad. What are your holiday traditions? Do you travel or stay put or watch movies and eat Chinese food? I have done them all...
