|The night before Christmas, 1933|
The night before Christmas
Tonight I'll see again a winter's movies inspired by Santa's fairy-tales
And I'll recount the story of the Christmas and the mirage of the Holly Grail.
Although it's not midnight, through snowflakes, the darkness will unveil
The Santa Claus arrival, friendly "ghost" projected on the walls with so many details.
I love to be present at his triumphal arrival, it is such a fantastic silvery-sight.
The Angels sang Corals on my street. Is the Christmas Eve, and in this night
I listen at the chimney their song when I'm waiting to see in the moonlight
How Santa is climbing over the house and his sledge carried by deers stops from its flight.
The Christmas tree lit magically the Santa's way when he tries to go unseen
From the chimney, passing the roaring fire. For me is magic, for him is routine
To enter the room and to walk in so quiet. His face enlighten by smile should be seen
When puts presents under tree. His presence makes me asleep in Christmas dreams.
Well, as I said... it is time to see some films of the "classic" era of the 1930s and 1940s - movies like "Santa's workshop (1932) have something that always and forever capture all the people (children or older) and these days they don't make movies like these anymore.
Give a try to "A Christmas Carol (1935)" and for almost 80 minutes you'll feel like you read the Charles Dickens' book (and also you compare it with the Disney's animation 2009 version). Or if you are sentimental and want to laugh, try to find "We're no Angels" with Humphrey Bogart (1955) or "The Night before Christmas(1933)".
Alternate those movies with Christmas Corals or magical classical songs like: "Ave Maria" by Schubert , or "Ave Maria, Dolce Maria" song written by Pavarotti, featured in stunning "The Three Tenors" recitals of Jose Carreras, Placido Domingo and Luciano Pavarotti (1999, Vienna):
and I'm sure you'll have a great Holly Night with magic "Christmas Jingle Bells".
