Are you as heavily into Christmas as I am? If so, then I’m sure I’m telling you nothing new whatsoever when I say there are some very great vintage American Christmas specials to be found on YouTube. For you binge watching pleasure, I’ve put my favorite Christmas specials in this here list – hope you enjoy it!
Now, if you’ll excuse me I’m going to write the final bits and pieces of my upcoming book. Yes, you can already pre-order it on Amazon.com but no, it isn’t finished just yet!
Have a great Christmas and make the best of 2018!
Judy Garland Christmas Special
The Judy Garland Christmas Special is what got me the idea for this blogpost. So much fun to a watch a young Liza Minnelli work some her classic moves!
The Andy Williams Christmas Show
Boy, they sure loved saturated colors back in the Sixties! And what about Andy Williams’ French wife Claudine Longet? Quel accent!
The Carpenters: A Christmas Portrait
I love the Carpenters and I ain’t ashamed to say it. So there. This Christmas special is so incredibly twee it’s not even funny anymore.
John Denver and the Muppets – A Christmas Together
I’m not much of a John Denver fan – come to think of it, I don’t think I’ve ever met anyone who likes John Denver besides my grandmother. Still, this 1979 Christmas special he did together with the Muppets is a lot of fun to watch.
Kenny and Dolly A Christmas to Remember
‘It takes a lot of money to look this cheap!’ That is still one of my favorite Dolly Parton quotes. Here she is in 1984, looking particularly blonde and busty as she sings her heart out together with Kenny Rogers. She really should have been president instead of Donald Trump, don’t you think?
