If you didn’t get the joke when the Babylon Bee said, “Gretchen Whitmer Casts Over Michigan So It Is Always Winter and Never Christmas“, you really should read the first book in the acclaimed Narnia Chronicles. In the story, the White Witch has cast such a spell on the land of Narnia. The crack in […]
It’s almost Christmas and here at the American Cinema Foundation, we have a surprise-podcast, part of the series on middlebrow. We’re talking about how American Christmas came to be. My friend — and fellow Ricochet member — Eric Cook has the story for you, I’m just along for the ride. He goes from the Dutch in New Amsterdam to the family bounty Christmas of the ’50s, from New England to Pennsylvania and to the South, and back to Europe, ancient, medieval, and modern to pick up all the strands needed to weave together to make for a Merry Christmas. Listen, comment, and please share!
Here’s another Christmas movie! The one hysterical comedy about Christmas of recent times (2003) and a “smarter than the average bear” treatment of the theme of all such stories: Christmas is imperiled! For once, we have a comic hero trying to get people to get Christmas right.
Will Ferrell in his funniest role squeals with delight and booms with outrage at something we ourselves would like to take so much pleasure in, Christmas. The lovely Zooey Deschanel plays the elf he falls in love with, James Caan the father he never knew, Bob Newhart his elf adoptive father, and Ed Asner as Santa Claus. There’s also a good supporting cast that might surprise you, including the now-famous Peter Dinklage, Andy Richter, Kyle Gass, and Amy Sedaris.

So it’s very petty of me to complain about this one teeny weeny little meaningless thing, but I have a pet […]

No. No. No, no, no.

Since my dad was born on Pearl Harbor Day, today is his birthday. I should start out with a nod to him. Parent A’s posts have helped me realize how many assumptions I make having grown up in an intact home with loving, albeit imperfect parents. Life at home wasn’t a stock-photo scene, but it was […]
