  1. Great show! You’ve got me interested in Millions. Unlike some people, we don’t seem to have time for 8 to 9 (!) Christmas movies each year 🙂 but we always watch The Muppet Christmas Carol (Rizzo: What? What?), Raymond Brigg’s The Snowman (I cry every year), and The Blue Carbuncle, starring Jeremy Brett – yes, we’re Holmes nuts. Looks like we may have to add Elf to our list, though. It’s the favourite of our new daughter-in-law! Merry Christmas to you all and long live the True King!
