THE BEST CHRISTMAS MOVIES EVER – 12 DAYS OF CHRISTMAS (2016)

“12 Days of Christmas” is story about a hopelessly romantic writer, Cynthia (Meredith Hagner), and the inability of the men in her life to live up to her romantic ideal.

But when her and her friend and illustrator Liam (Bobby Campo) go to her father’s house for the Christmas Wedding of her sister Janet (Megan Park) Cynthia starts receiving at her door anonymous gifts of the “12 Days of Christmas”.

It's a fun mystery but Cynthia is determined to find out who the great romantic is that’s sending the gifts and conscripts everyone around her to assist.

Eventually she decides that it must be a local Deputy, Scott (Aaron O'Connell), but will he live up to her expectations or will there be a final twist or two.

OH MY CHRISTMAS ANGEL

 

Oh my Christmas Angel

Won’t you here my plea

Oh Christmas Angel

Spend Christmas with me

 

Oh my Christmas Angel

Surely heaven sent

Oh Christmas Angel

Be my Christmas present

 

Oh my Christmas Angel

Wont you here my plea

Let me un-wrap you

Beneath the Christmas tree

 

Oh my Christmas Angel

Oh please hear me do?

Oh Christmas angel

Let me make a devil out of you

TWAS THE NIGHT BEFORE CHRISTMAS # 33

 

Twas the night before Christmas

And all thru the Grange

Not a creature was stirring

Which seemed rather strange

As they were party animals

And needed little reason

But it turned out they’d gone

To Mauritius for the season

GREETINGS TO THE WORLD

 

“Happy Christmas” is what I chose to say

But many greetings are used for the day

To one and all during the festive season

And different languages are the reason

Say "Frolyke Kerstfeest" or "Joyoo Noel"

"Felleeth Navidad" even "Glaydlig Yool"

"Kalla Kristoogenna", "Boo-on Natarlee"

"Boas Festas" or "Sheng Dan Kwhy Lee"

You could say "Frerlicker Vine-akten"

Or maybe "Roshdesrom Kristovim" then

So you can say it in very many ways

But please never say “Happy Holidays”

THE BEST CHRISTMAS MOVIES EVER – ONCE UPON A CHRISTMAS (2009)

 

When the Naughty/Nice list is produced at the Northpole Santa is stunned to find that there are more Naughty children on the list than Nice for the first time ever so Santa (Douglas Campbell) refuses to go on with Christmas and leaves with Mrs. Claus (Rebecca Toolan) on their first Hawaiian holiday.

This is great news for firstborn daughter Rudolfa (Mary Donnelly-Haskell) who is waiting in the wings to succeed him and wants to turn Christmas into a creepy prank festival, but her gentle younger sister Kristen (Kathy Ireland) begs for the chance to save Christmas by redeeming a family who have lost the Christmas spirit, the Morgan’s.

 

Workaholic Widower Bill Morgan (John Dye) spends all his time on business and a budding affair with a close, equally workaholic spinster colleague, Harley Jones (Rachelle Carson) while his brother-in-law, Uncle Johnny (Wayne Thomas Yorke) acts as a poor role model to the cynical, materialistic, spoiled brats Kyle (James Kirk) and Brittany (Kirsten Prout).

Kristen arrives at the Morgan’s as the new au-pair, of which she has had a long list of predecessors, and slowly wins the kids over, helped by Johnny, who fears eviction, and begins to restore the Christmas spirit in the household which will ultimately save Christmas and thwart Rudolfa’s evil plan.

DID YOU FALL FROM HEAVEN?

 

Did you fall from heaven?

With the winter snow

You must be an Angel

You have that special glow

 

You must have come from heaven

An Angel from above.

Sent to me this Christmas

Sent to bring me love

 

Come sit beside me

In the glowing candle light

I never knew my love

Could ever burn so bright

 

From this first moment

As we drink a glass of wine

Your sweet angelic nature

Tells me you are divine

 

Wrapped in an Angels form

As our Christmas starts

You give me the gift of love

And I give to you my heart

TWAS THE NIGHT BEFORE CHRISTMAS # 32

 

Twas the night before Christmas

And all thru the Manor

Not a creature was stirring

As they’d been cooked for dinner
