The past few days, I’ve been listening to classic Christmas shows from my childhood. I had stumbled upon the collection on YouTube. I don’t need to watch them, just glance at them now and then as I work around the kitchen. I’ve seen them so many times over 50 years, I know what the scenes look like.
These classics are the best. They’re not technically wonderful, but the memories they stir of sitting with my brothers and sisters watching these makes them perfect. It doesn’t matter if they’ve remade these shows; they won’t be as good as the original.
If you want to reminisce, too, check out Classic Christmas Movies. The line up is Frosty the Snowman, Rudolph the Red-nosed Reindeer, Santa Claus is Coming to Town and The Little Drummer Boy.

- The Little Drummer Boy 1968
