Christmas, 1950. Another Place, Another Time.

From Sippican Cottage, via Gerard:

I find it difficult, if not impossible, to imagine going to the local Cineplex (12 screens!) and seeing something like this today. Wait. It IS impossible to imagine. Yes, you might see something like this in church. But in a theatre? Not likely…not possible, in this day and age.

What have we lost? Much. And what have we gained? You tell me, Gentle Reader, coz I really want to know.


  1. You know how this topic makes me rant. If Christmas is suppose to celebrate the birth of Christ, most people today do not know it or want to admit it. That video is a reminder of that Christmas has to do with the Christian religion and that is a PC no-no.

    I deleted the rest of my rant so as not to offend people who think they defend Christmas.

  2. Feel absolutely FREE to rant away, Lou. I stifled a rant when I put this up...and probably shouldn't have.

  3. Those days are gone forever....thanks to Hollywood, a pathetic secular/progressive justice system, and the "gimmee" society we live I've told my kids, I'm glad I had the chance to enjoy the United States before the likes of Lyndon Johnson screwed it up with his not-so Great Society.....

    Merry CHRISTmas Buck!

  4. I did rant about the P.C.-ing of Christmas a couple of weeks ago. It is a rant that is appropriate at this time of year - heck, at any time of year.

    As Pat said -Merry Christmas to all.


Just be polite... that's all I ask.
