What we love this week (November 25 – December 1, 2022)

Here’s a sample of what we love this week:


He’s mean, he’s green and he’s back on TV. We mean real, of course. (Don’t even mention that horrible live-action version starring Jim Carrey. It still gives us nightmares.) The beloved 1966 animated film How the Grinch Stole Christmas — with such great music and horror movie icon Boris Karloff voicing the title character — airing at 7 p.m. on Friday, November 25, on NBC. It’s perfect watching as you polish off a bowl of leftover stuffing.

holiday lights

Thanks to everyone who was busy wiring lights through gutters and over bushes and creating lighted reindeer. We appreciated the extra lighting and festive scenes When we’re out with our dog after dark or when we’re heading home from work. To see some great outdoor lighting displays, head to Jellystone Park in Caledonia or Jerry Smith’s Farm in Somers. For more information about optical displays, see page C5.

Craft shows

It’s the season for fun shopping outings. If they come with a side of hot cocoa and cookies, even better! The area includes Christmas bazaars and handicraft shows this week “Crafts in the woods” On Saturday, November 26, at YMCA Camp MacLean in Burlington. See our calendar of events on pages 18-19 for more details on craft fairs in the area.

Children’s film in theaters

“strange world” – Disney’s latest animated movie – is now in theaters, just in time to entertain bored kids. The film centers on “a legendary family of explorers, the Clades, as they attempt to navigate an unknown and treacherous land alongside a motley crew that includes a mischievous blob, a three-legged dog, and a slew of predatory creatures.” Try to get this crew through airport security!

24 hours of “elf”

Forget about your elf on the shelf and settle for some “elf” on the couch. Starting at 5 a.m. on Saturday, TBS is showing “Elf” for 24 hours. The 2003 comedy stars Will Ferrell as a human raised by Santa’s elves. When he finds out he’s been adopted, he heads to New York City to meet his biological father (the late James Caan, in a role far removed from his “Godfather” work). “Elf” is a true Christmas classic, the rare one that so delicately balances the sweet and the savory. And there’s a lot of laughter, too. Turn on the TV and have the Elf team as your background while you cut the tree this weekend.

How sweet is it…

We never need an excuse to indulge our love of chocolate, but if you do, here it is: November 29 is Chocolate Day. Enjoy your favorite treats: in candy bars, truffles, kisses, or warm cookies. We love our dark hue with hazelnut… hint.
