Christmas Specials

December 20th, 2015 at 12:15 pm

It's cold outside, and snowing a little bit, but that's ok because I've done my Christmas shopping. It was going to be just the three of us, but now it's either 9 or 13 people (we still don't know about one family - we're giving them a deadline to decide!).

Meanwhile, we've made up a list of all of the Christmas specials we want to watch... we are not big TV addicts (we watch either a half hour or hour a day), but we love those Christmas specials! We'll spread them out.

We've already watched "Back in Time for Christmas" which is the Christmas version of "Back in Time for Dinner." (That's the show where a family experiences the food and lifestyle of each decade since WWII - totally fascinating especially with rationing). Have any of you seen this? It's brilliant and challenged a lot of my assumptions about food.

Here are the others on our list:
- Supershoppers do Christmas
- Bear Goes Wild with Barack
- Eat well for less at Christmas 28 days
- Tigers about the House - What Happened Next (we saw the original of this, and can't wait to see what happened next!)
- The Secret Life of Children at Christmas
- Gogglesprogs
- Great British Bakeoff Christmas Masterclass

    I don't know any of those shows! That Back in Time for Christmas sounds very interesting, but I'm not sure I have access to that.

    We watched The Polar Express last night. Might find something tonight, but the only one I have to watch is It's a Wonderful Life. Smile
    We put a puzzle together as a family today. That was fun and relaxing!

    I've never heard of any of those!

    I don't know that I'll be watching anything especially Christmasy - barely have been watching anything lately.

    They're all UK shows... even though we live in the US, we don't have television and only watch tv on our computers...
    Creditcardfree - try this link to youtube for the previous series, Back in Time for Dinner (it was fascinating!!): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oLtMeBafJAE
