The Holidays

Well, it's the Christmas holiday again. Time to get out the old flicks that relate to this special occasion that comes once a year. Time off from work to enjoy such flicks like "The Hebrew Hammer" and "Friday After Next," two of the most recent all-time Christmas classics where Santa is looked at through a different kind of lens. In one, Santa Klaus dies and his evil son takes over the role to utterly destroy Hanukkah and it is up to the Hebrew Hammer to defeat Evil Klaus to save Hanukkah. In the other film, Santa Klaus is a thief who roams around the ghetto
breaking in people's homes, stealing all of their gifts on Christmas Eve night. There are some other Christmas I might like to see, such as "Four Christmases," but I would want to see it as a matinee feature. I would not fork in 9 or 10 bucks to see it. On Christmas Day, Tom Cruise, back from his Scientology relapse and his conniption fits, stars as the guy who wants to stop Hitler from within in with the movie entitled, "Valkyrie." Oh, just what we need. Another movie about freakin' Hitler and World War II. It should be well known what Hitler did for many who know anything about history. All except for David Irving, Mark Weber, and Osama bin Laden. Hitler represented everything that was evil about this world and who wanted to annihilate a whole religion and its people and annihilate many others, too all in the name of a "purified," "superior" race to rule the world with an iron fist. So many films and documentaries are found concerning this as well as books on the subject. Well, okay, I may go see it when it debuts if I don't have anything else to do on Christmas night or sometime after that. I keep putting off things I might like to do, but many important things keeps getting in the way. Many other films are coming out such as the one Will Smith stars called "Seven Pounds." I hope I got the title right. Hmm, don't know if this is worth while.

Anyway, I hope to post more before Christmas Day. Around this time, Jews observe Hanukkah and Muslims, for some who are able and can afford to go, are partaking the hajj or pilgrimage to Mecca and Medina. While those events are going on, we have the Eagleback Bowl, a college bowl no one has never heard of before where Wake Forest was playing Navy (the Naval Academy).
Also, there is college basketball where 1-A schools play and pounce on those from the 1-AA.
You know, the usual things that holidays so unique.

I guess that's it for now.
