  •  Who remembers "The Spirit of Christmas"? (0+ / 0-)

    For anyone growing up in the Philadelphia area in the 50s and 60s, the premiere "it's Christmas" moment probably came with the airing of this little half hour program. It was in two parts, the first a recitation of The Night Before Christmas and the second half a very reverent presentation of the nativity story. It was all done with marionettes. I hadn't seen it on TV in decades, until our local PBS station unearthed a copy rotting away in some film vault... and they've now taken to showing it every year. Does anyone else remember this program??

    You know why we can't have nice things? Because we keep electing Republicans.
