    ...the holidays just seem like an unnecessary pain the ass, sometimes..... By Christmas Eve I'm usually numb to all the friggin hoopla & nonsense ....


    Need a corny, sappy Netflix movie to get be back into the spirit of things ... Even a well made Heeb movie might do


    God bless . . .

    The Lifetime Movie Network usually has some real tearjerkers.

    I second this. I hate all things sappy and emotional but this is a great film.

    Check out a not really well known movie called "One Magic Christmas" with Harry Dean Stanton and Mary Steenburgen. Probably the most depressing Christmas movie ever made by far. Some highlights:
    The dad loses his job and the family is forced to move out of their house on Jan. 1st
    The dad gets shot dead by a robber

    It has a happy ending but everything leading up to it is really bleak.

    Are you just venting here, Phan, or are you really never happy? I'm worried. I know the holidays take a huge toll on people, though. We did Christmas w/my family really early this year so it's a lot more pleasant for me this year, personally.
