I’ve been getting notifications that people are subscribing to Diary of a Domestic Goddess, but as I mentioned in my previous post, I’m no longer using this blog. Not using it at all. There won’t be any more posts here, so there’s no point in subscribing.

Instead, why not pop along to my NEW blog, where I AM posting. Pretty much daily. Honestly, it’s a great blog, you should go visit it. And maybe subscribe to THAT one instead. You can find it here:

Day 12 – The Muppet Christmas Carol

Well, of course, it’s The Muppet Christmas Carol (1992) – what else could it possibly be? It just HAD to be the Muppets for Christmas Day!

Day 9 – Bad Santa

Just a few days left, so it’s time for another one featuring St. Nick (or one of his helpers), albeit a shady version of him. Billy Bob Thornton is Bad Santa (2003), a con man who uses a Santa suit as a disguise to rob a department store on Christmas Eve, while his partner in crime is dressed as an elf. However, they don’t count on a small boy making them see the true meaning of Christmas and giving them a change of heart. It’s fun and schmaltzy, but any film that features a grumpy Santa is good in my book – especially if he experiences a turn-around at the crucial moment.

It’s not really one for the kids, but the grown-ups can have a drink and a giggle at this one when the little’uns are tucked up in bed.

Here’s the trailer.

Day 8 – It Happened on Fifth Avenue

This one is pure Christmas Movie Magic. It Happened on Fifth Avenue (1947) is one of those wonderful feel-good films that seems to get overlooked in favour of the better-known ones such as It’s a Wonderful Life (which is a film I’ve never actually seen yet, despite being a HUGE fan of James Stewart!). It is, however, in my opinion, worthy of attention, and if you have never seen it, I beg you to rectify that situation as soon as possible!

I couldn’t find a trailer for this wonderful film, so I will let you see the opening ten minutes in the hopes that it will make you want to watch the rest…

Day 7 – How the Grinch Stole Christmas

We’re heading into the final countdown, so here’s a full-on family Christmas film with heart. Well, it doesn’t start out that way in How the Grinch Stole Christmas (2000), but with this being a story by Dr. Seuss, you just know there will be all kind of madcap misadventures before everything turns out alright in the end.
