Great Christmas Movie!

Christmas is in the air everywhere! I walked around the store the other day and heard Christmas music playing on the speakers. I also saw Christmas trees and lights put up in store windows.

In the spirit of things, I decided to go to a Christmas movie yesterday. I went to “A Very Harold and Kumar 3D Christmas”. It was hilarious! It’s a comedy and a little raunchy at times, so I don’t suggest taking your grandmother to go see it. It’s one that I definitely will be buying when it comes out on DVD and BluRay.

This is the third Harold and Kumar movie. They have drifted apart since the second movie and they join forces to adventure through New York City to find a Christmas tree on Christmas Eve that will impress Harold’s father-in-law. They, of course, encounter straight shenanigans and it’s a hilarious movie from beginning to end!





Portmeirion A Christmas Story Oval Platter-Yule Log

platterThis is the latest edition to the collection of Christmas dinnerware by Portmeirion. This piece is called the Yule Log Platter and is part of the accessories collection.

If you know someone who is a collector of these dishes (or any dishes) this is a very important piece because it has a very important part of the story printed on it. The words printed on this platter are “Now, Dasher! now, Dancer now Prancer and Vixen! On, Comet! on, Cupid! on, Donder and Blitzen!”

The platter has the same trim around the sides with a green border and holly leaves as the rest of the set and features Santa flying through the night sky in a sleigh full of toys and being pulled by his reindeer. The background on this plate has a beautiful blue night sky instead of the more common white backgrounds that appear on some of the other pieces. The platter is 16 inches log so it will accommodate a good size yule log and makes a great cookie of cheese tray as well.
