Where are all the ghost specials… It’s the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown…. The Canterville Ghost…. Arsenic and Old Lace... and my personal favorite, The Ghost and Mr. Chicken?
Sorry Christmas Hallmark lovers. I really don’t think all their movies are like that, but that’s just been my viewing experience overall. (Why can’t all their leading men be like Warren Christie when he was in “The Most Wonderful Time of the Year?”) And in addition to that, those little Folgers coffee cameos in each movie I find a bit distracting.
Rambling Side Note -
I bet those aspiring actors felt how the first astronauts did when they sent a chimp up into space instead.
But what I DO enjoy the most about the Hallmark Christmas movies are the holiday decorations. I often find myself fast forwarding through parts of the movies just to see those scenes decked out with Christmas bling.
My favorite so far is “A Royal Christmas.” (I wish I could find screen caps of the decorations). I especially loved how all the little businesses were decorated at the end; the pretty teal and red colors with all that crisp white snow… gorgeous! Especially the snow. (Does snow count as decoration?)
Enough Christmas rambling. I still haven’t forgotten that tomorrow is Halloween. There are no bags of Halloween candy in our house, so the closest ‘Halloween Experience’ I have in my hands right now is perusing old Halloween blog posts and posting Halloween graphics.
Sad, I know. It's sad, but at least I'm being honest.

(Not very “Halloween-ish,” but that’s just how it’s been this year).
