Two for Tuesday (2002-12-17)

I always wondered if I would be good at answering these things…

1. What is your favourite holiday song?
I’d have to say “O Holy Night/Minuit Chrétien,” hands down. The more orchestrated and the more voices in the choir, the better. I’m no big fan of Christmas as it has become, but I like proper decorum as well as some “pomp and circumstance.”

2. Favourite holiday movie?
I can’t think of an actual movie that stands out as my favorite. Rather I’m brought to think of the half-hour Christmas specials when I was a kid which I still love today. It’s a tie between “How the Grinch Stole Christmas” — brilliant text! — and “Merry Christmas Charlie Brown.”
