The Christmas That Almost Wasn't constantly.
The infectious and annoyingly creepy theme song still worms its way into my brain every so often.
After endless repeats I started to hate that movie.
We weren't even supposed to have HBO. At the time I was making a big fuss about going to see the movie Benji. My dad told me we could either see Benji or get HBO.
I chose Benji.
We got HBO.
I never did get to see Benji but I did see the terrifying horror flick Beyond the Door and The Christmas That Almost Wasn't about a hundred billion times.
With all the talk of the Mayan calendar and the end of the world it seemed as though this might actually be the Christmas that almost wasn't. Thankfully, like in the movie, Christmas did come to all of us down here in Whoville!
I am also hoping that, like the movie, we are in for a change of heart and a happy ending. Dear Shirley MacLaine believes the end of the Mayan calendar signals a shift in the collective consciousness towards a point of oneness wherein mankind begins to truly care for one another. Wouldn't that be nice?
Either that or extra terrestrials will make themselves known.
I suppose that would bring us together too.
