the morning strut's swoonsome Xmas things

'Tis the season to be generous, so I've decided to treat all four of my readers to a little festive swoonage.

Without further ado, I present The Morning Strut's thoroughly useless assemblage of Xtacular Xmas Xavourites!

my favourite xmas lady: 

for looking like tinsel the whole year 'round - the impossibly festive Carmen Miranda

my favourite xmas lad: 

for joining in the fun when he possibly didn't want to - Bobby Farrell of Boney M

my favourite piece of commercial xmas tripe:

for nailing half a dozen classic movie moments in under a minute -   M&S Xmas Campaign 2007

my favourite xmas animation: 

for Fred Astaire's claymation chin - Santa Claus Is Coming To Town (1970)

my favourite xmas party: 

for featuring an off-her-face Katharine Hepburn - Xmas eve at the Federal Broadcasting Network, as seen in Desk Set (1957)

my favourite xmas movie:

my favourite xmas mistletune:

don't be fucking ridiculous - here's a handful to chew on;

Blue Christmas (To Who It May Concern) - Miles Davis Feat. Bob Dorough 
Jingling Baby - L.L. Cool J
Mele Kalikimaka - Bing Crosby Feat. The Andrews Sisters
Cool Yule - Louis Armstrong
Merry Christmas, Baby - Otis Redding 

If any of my devoted quartet have made it this far, well done.
This is for you. 

 Merry Christmas, Feliz Navidad, Happy Holidays! Let the record show that I wish Joy To The World and Peace On Earth.

  1. I like to think that at Carmen Miranda's autopsy the surgical incision was the equivalent of a party popper. Covered in glitter.

    And intestines.
