Holiday Specials

This season Hallmark will present at least twenty Christmas movies with titles ranging from Christmas She Wrote to Never Kiss a Man in a Christmas Sweater—let’s face it, it’s tough coming up with original Christmas movie titles. And how about the rejected titles: Christmas in Solitary Confinement;  Rudolph the Red Nosed Uncle; Bells are Ringing in my Head.  Sure, these titles were rejected but at the pace of twenty movies per Christmas, we figure Hallmark will get around to most of them sooner than Santa can hitch up his sleigh to wish all of us: Merry Christmas to all and—coming up next on the Hallmark Channel: Escape from the North Pole. I’m Grumpy Old Dan Smith and you can hear more of me, for better or worse, on WLHA, the Big 64.
