The movie stars Billy Murray, Karen Allen, Carol Kane and Bobcat Goldthwait. Murray portrays a mean, rude, jerk of a executive producer who only thinks of himself  who gets a wake up called on Christmas eve night by three spirits.

Carol Kane, John Forsythe and David Johansen played the three spirits who bring a hilarious but vital message to Murray on the meaning of Christmas and just to reconnect to the man he was before evil and greed took over his mind and personality.

This has been one of my favorite Christmas movies since I was a kid.  They always show this on UPN on Sundays (there was a block of time on Sundays afternoons were the channel just showed movies)  in the summer for some reason. However it made me go into the Christmas spirit early. There are so many great cameos in this movie such as Robert Goulet, Robert Mitchum. Robert Stack, Lee Majors, and Buddy Hackett.

Fun fact about this movie: Robert Mitchum did not want to do the cameo in this movie at fist but when he met Bill Murrray and was so charmed by him he changed his mind and agree to do the film!

 

 

Until next time!

Coloring book Christmas…

I noticed when I was mentally preparing a Christmas wish list I noticed that a good majority of it was….coloring books! So if you guys are undecided on what to give this holiday season go retro, and be different! Give the gift of coloring book with a box of crayons. It’s a chance to let out stress when coloring and also a chance of being creative! Here’s some I have on my wish list:

Until next time!!

Books I am currently reading..

Hello everyone! The holiday season is here and I know I have been mia for on here. So I thought I would do a quick post on my current reads.

This book is so absorbing because it is true life! It is about a mother and son relationship gone creepy and murder!

I just finished watching the limited series last month and it propelled me to read the book. I’m about 8 chapters in and it has so much more details where the series left off. The characters are fleshed out and a bit more human.

What is everyone reading this holiday season?
