A couple of the funniest Christmastime moments this week were jokes between me and my younger brother. He was born when I was five, so you can imagine how goofy and fun Christmas was for us as kids. One of the things we laughed at most this time of year when we were younger was the scene from the "Ralphie and the BB gun" (A Christmas Story) movie in which Ralphie finally has his big moment with Santa Claus and Santa turns out to be the wild-eyed super-scary man pictured above. :) That screenshot, and the movie dialogue below, depict this scene that made us howl with laughter growing up. When I woke up Christmas morning, TBS's all-day movie marathon of the movie was the first holiday-related program I found on TV, and guess which scene was up? I took a picture and sent it to Brian, who later responded. . . .
A couple days before, he reminded me of "our line" below. We thought we were so clever when we thought of this as kids, and I'm sure we drove our parents and older brother crazy with it. On December 23rd: "Tomorrow we can say 'Tomorrow is Christmas!'" Yessssssss--except we would start this the week before as kids. "Tomorrow we can say, 'Tomorrow we can say, tomorrow we can say, tomorrow we can say, TOMORROW is Christmas!" Ay! :)
The shared silliness is year-round, of course, but these were two of my favorite moments this week. ♥
