It is Almost Time Again For Christmas Movies on TV

I know you are probably thinking, why I am bringing up Christmas 2 months before and it is early to even think about it, but with the time going by so quickly, it will be here before you know it, However It is that time again where Halloween is almost here, and the day after Halloween, is when all the Christmas Commercials, and Movies that are shown on Television right until New Years. 2014 has just zoomed on by. it was just like yesterday we were celebrating the New Year and Christmas, and now it is almost here again. Christmas movies have been a tradition for me annually.

There are many Christmas movies out there, however some just stand out more than others, and I really enjoy Watching Home Alone, Home Alone 2: Lost In New York, Griswold’s National Lampoons Christmas Vacation, Four Christmas’s, Miracle on 34th St, Santa Clause, Santa Clause 2, Jingle All the way, The Muppet Christmas Carol, and Jack Frost.

The most I watch though is Home Alone, Home Alone 2: Lost In New York, and National Lampoons Christmas Vacation.

I love watching these movies, I make myself a hot beverage, cover up with a warm blanket in the cold winter months, and I just enjoy myself. No matter how many times I watch them, it feels like I am watching them for the first time. I just do not like the commercials that interrupt the movie.

Some movies you can watch over and over again, but some movies once is more than enough, however these classic movies will never go out of style and will certainly never get old. I cannot wait until they appear on television once again and where I can continue my tradition as always. I sometimes watch it by myself, with family and friends as well. I am quite excited for it all. I have fun either way.

The only thing I do not like is the Cold Winter months and the snow, but everything else is great. 🙂 Do you watch Christmas movies? Do you have traditions that you follow or at least try to follow annually? Would love to hear from you. 🙂 Well, have a great time and fabulous upcoming Holiday Season.

 

Talin’s Vegetable Whole Wheat Spaghetti

They say that you shouldn’t eat pasta that much and that it is bad for you, but really it isn’t. Pasta is very nutritious for you and we always hear that pasta makes us super fat, well, its not always the case. I myself love pasta and I can eat it day in and day out. I try to make one or two pasta dinners a week whatever it is such as Penne Rigate, Orzo, Tagliatelle, Bucatini, Rigatoni, Regular Spaghetti. Now there is this Barilla Commercial that shows in Ontario of this lady cooking pasta and she is not satisfied with her brand of Pasta, so this good looking guy who is her neighbor sees her cooking and knocks on her door to give her Barilla Pasta and he doesn’t stay at the door and then the guy sees her enjoy her guests and he looks on and smiles and she smiles. Its so awesome. How come it never happens to me? :) I should get Barilla lets see if that will do anything for me. :) Well, enough of that, here is my Vegatable Whole Wheat Spaghetti.

Those Buffalo, Western, New York Commercials Entertain Me

For so many months now, I have been watching a few shows on TV, and then the Commercials come on and I see all these commercials from Buffalo, Western New York and Niagara Falls areas of USA and Canada. They entertain me so much and I sometimes start to laugh. I have seen those places they advertise when I go to Buffalo and Niagara Falls USA Side and I start laughing even more. I don’t know what is it with those commercials, but they are funny as heck. LOL. Whenever I head to Niagara Falls, all these commercials are stuck in my head and then I act on them and they I say it to my parents, and friends and they start laughing. I once did these commercials when I was on the USA Side when I went to Seneca Casino in Niagara Falls, New York, and people heard me and started to laugh. Especially the workers and the people who live there. I remember going into Walgreens and I did those commercials, it was funny and people started to laugh.

I know some of the commercials aren’t funny about the Lawyers and everything. I know these are ordinary people trying to make a living, and I am not trying to mock them or anything, but the commercials just plain entertain me and I love them. So kudos to them.

There are those Basil, Fuccillo, Gambino, Lockport commercials, followed by Sam Maislin, Robert Berkun, Cellino & Barnes, Kenneth Hiller, Brown Chiari, Then followed by Seneca Casino, Airport Plaza Jewelers, the Kiosk, Walden Galleria, The Valu home centers guy with his commercials, walgreens, rite aid, Tonawanda, Cheektowaga, Amherst, Buffalo, and all those surrounding areas, West Herr New York, Marineland Commercial, Great Wolf Lodge, Fallsview Casino Niagara Hotel commercials. I love watching those commercials so much, that I re-enact all the commercials and start singing them and I have even memorized all the phone numbers and everything. If you have anymore that you have seen from them, let me know. I may have forgotten some…
Thanks 🙂

 

Those Overly Advertised Christmas Commercials Come To An End

Since Halloween has come and gone, the following day the Christmas Commercials on TV, RADIO, INTERNET had come up, and today those Overly Advertised Christmas commercials have come to an end, thank goodness. I mean its one thing to advertise a product but to have the same commercials playing over and over again is something that I do not like. Christmas has become so business saturated, too commercialized and these companies, businesses just want the money and they also pay big bucks to advertise things that do not need to be advertised every 5 minutes.

Where do we draw the line? The true essence and the true meaning of Christmas is becoming rare. The last 2 weeks, the shopping malls, plaza’s have been over-filled with shoppers, people fighting over parking spots, trying to find parking in overcrowded parking lots of malls. I stay away from malls and places to shop in the month of December. I mean whatever there is, I can buy it other times of the year and I do not have to risk being trampled over, waiting in super long line-ups, getting stressed out on finding a good parking spot, so on and so forth.

When I get into my car and I go somewhere, I listen to the Radio and all I hear are Christmas commercials on furniture, cars, toys, so on and so forth, so I turn the channel or I turn off the radio and put music on. I am just so fed up of those commercials. I am glad its all over with today. I mean yes these things are some peoples bread and butter and the way some people make their money to survive, but Who else finds it super annoying when things are excessively and overly advertised?

Everything has its limits.

Thanks for dropping by, and Enjoy Christmas day!

How Infomercials make us look like we do not know anything

Have you seen those annoying infomercials on television where these companies like as seen on tv make you look like you do not know anything? Have you ever been so insulted by that? Those commercials make you so low especially those products in regards to the kitchen. terrible.

They need to change those infomercials and make it better for the viewers. its unacceptable.
