I've taught fifth-year Christmas leavers last thing on a Friday afternoon. Basically if you can face that you can face anything.
Orphans dead parents lonely children at Christmas morose spoken word recordings everything you love about the holidays. Move the turkey over so you can fit your head in the oven.
It always depresses me when people moan about how commercial Christmas is. I love everything about it. The tradition of having this great big feast slap bang in the middle of winter is an essential thing to look forward to at the end of the year.
It is never too late to get into tennis! While I started playing at the age of 8 when my parents gave me a tennis racquet for Christmas tennis is a lifelong sport that can be enjoyed by people of almost any age. It's also something you never forget once you learn.
Fantastic! Right in the middle of that long stretch between Christmas and Spring Break your coats are getting dirty everything's dark dingy - what a great time for a movie!
It's more like Christmas you know when you get a shot in that looks great and it's exactly what you want. It's a great feeling and there's nothing like it.
The unfortunate thing about working for yourself is that you have the worst boss in the world. I work every day of the year except at Christmas when I work a half day.
Christmas is taken very seriously in this household. I believe in Father Christmas and there's no way I'd do anything to undermine that belief.
I'm going to take the kids away over Christmas but I don't I've written 14 musicals now I don't want to rush into doing something just for the sake of doing it. I want to do it when I find a story.
My mother died of metastatic colorectal cancer shortly before three P.M. on Christmas Day of 2008. I don't know the exact time of her death because none of us thought to look at a clock for a while after she stopped breathing.
I was at the vice president's Christmas party. I thought that his speech was spectacular and I knew that it was a very emotional and difficult thing for him to do but I admonished him for not waiting just one more stinking day.
I don't know of too many double Christmas albums so it is something that's new and hopefully will be fun and there's plenty of stuff out there to cut.
There's something about a Christmas sweater that will always make me laugh.
Well the album 'Intuition' is out and just went platinum officially. So I think to have the music doing what it's doing right now man it's the ultimate. Nobody is really selling records out there but we are at a million records and we dropped it at Christmas so we are just trying to get that thing to like two million you know.
Brits and Americans have hundreds of different phrases for the same thing. Luckily it's usually a source of amusement rather than frustration. A flashlight by any other name is still a torch. My personal favourite is 'fairy lights ' which we boringly refer to as 'Christmas lights.'
If you pray enough for things I am proof that they can happen. I feel like a kid on Christmas day now every day. It's something I have wanted for a long time and I am as happy as anyone to be here. It is great to be back at my first love.
You can't allow the forces of political correction to shut you up. I mean why are people afraid to say 'Merry Christmas?' Give me a break. If people don't like it yeah they can go do something else.
Christmas gives us the opportunity to pause and reflect on the important things around us - a time when we can look back on the year that has passed and prepare for the year ahead.
Making a Christmas album is looked upon by some people as the thing you do when you are heading towards retirement.
The worst gift that I ever gave a girl was a suitcase for Christmas. As in 'I can't think of anything to give you but here's a new suitcase.' Afterward I was like 'What were you thinking idiot?'
I suppose if you look back to your early childhood you accept everything people tell you and that includes a heavy dose of irrationality - you're told about tooth fairies and Father Christmas and things.
Next to a circus there ain't nothing that packs up and tears out faster than the Christmas spirit.
Christmas waves a magic wand over this world and behold everything is softer and more beautiful.
Now the essence the very spirit of Christmas is that we first make believe a thing is so and lo it presently turns out to be so.
