Door 18 and 19

Door 18:
The Nightmare before Christmas (2003)

The Pumpkin King is bored with having only Halloween.  He finds himself in another land, and is     more than fascinated.  He decides that this time his people will have Christmas  instead.  He let's Sandy Claws kidnap to give him a break and be Sandy instead.

Door 19:
National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation (1989)

A father, a tree, a slide, some special oil and a Christmas gratification.

Already prepared next year's calendar.  I changed it a bit by renaming the movies so I don't know what they are anymore and randomly put them into new folders marked 1 to 24.  So by next year I won't know which movie will be in.

Door 3 and 4

Behind Door 3:

Blackadder's Christmas Carol.  Yet another version of Charles Dickens' A Christmas Carol.

Ebenezer Blackadder and Baldrick

Ebenezer Blackadder owns a moustache shop. He is the nicest person in England, however he is also poor and people are taking advantage of him.  He gives away all his money, his presents and even his christmas tree and turkey.  A ghost will visit him and show him how his ancestors lived an also how his future might be if he becomes a bad man.

Door 4:

Loriot: Weihnachten bei Hoppenstedts


Another classic.  This time a German one. It's about a family and their troublesome way until Christmas.  From buying presents to opening them and playing with them.

Christmas is Coming


It is the time of the year again when you can either open a door of your Adventskalender filled with chocolate OR you can watch a movie every day.

That is what I do. I started off with a classic on the first:

(from a google search)

Who wouldn't smile when Charlie Brown becomes the director of the Christmas play and gets mocked by everybody, even Snoopy. Thank god there is Linus and his blanket, who knows the true meaning of Christmas.

Today I watched another classic:

(from a google search)

Adam's and Adora's birthdays are not too far.  Preparations are on their way whilst Adam prepares a new rocket with Man-At-Arms.  There'll be some trouble with Orco 'stealing' the rocket and crashlanding on earth.  He'll save two kids and is told the christmas story.
