It Happened One Holiday Night

[a repeat holiday performance from December 12, 2012]

The Holiday(s) are an enchanting time, transforming land lovers as well as those coasting by the ocean into festive film worshipers. Needing a rest before The Biggest Night of the Year, Santa Claus arrives along the sparkling Hollywood coast for a much-deserved but brief (movie) break. With sunglasses and SPF in hand, the little-known film buff quickly rejects a Christmas in Connecticut in favor of frost-free California terrain. The mysterious “Man in Red” sets aside his planned movie marathon when he realizes that Love Actually exists here among the stars and the sandy mistletoe and considers settling in with Mrs. Claus for a long winter’s nap (effective December 26th). They enjoy their first night in town as the honored guests at a glitzy Christmas Tree Lighting Ceremony, where music and the magic of the holidays linger in the air. In search of One Magic Christmas, the Mr. & Mrs. travel incognito on The Polar Express, which has just taken off on a festive Tinstletown tour. Each tiny Elf (along with the big kids) is hoping for a White Christmas to illuminate every Miracle (occurring) on 34th Street, Main Street, Hollywood Boulevard and beyond.  On board, Mr.& Mrs. Claus Meet John Doe and crew, who quickly give up their seats for the Little Women entering the train. The Family Man is swapping stories with The Family Stone, who find themselves on the Naughty List for sneaking a peek at Bridget Jones’s Diary. Always on the Nice List, however, is Prancer, leading the way toward enough joy to fill Four Christmases (since one is never enough). The happy passengers marvel at signs of Christmas found throughout town.

What movie magic is waiting for them, you may wonder? Check back next Friday for the conclusion to the Claus chronicle …
