Old Christmas

Creator: Washington Irving, Randolph Caldecott | 2008-12-19

This book, published in 1886 and illustrated by Randolph Caldecott, chronicles the American writer Washington Irving's nostalgic recollections of Christmas traditions in 19th century England.

About this book
"There is nothing in England that exercises a more delightful spell over my imagination than the lingerings of the holiday customs and rural games of former times." So begins Irving's classic recital of Christmas traditions in 19th-century England. Originally part of The Sketch Books of Geoffrey Crayon, Gent., which also included Irving's most famous stories, Rip Van Winkle and The Legend of Sleepy Hollow, Old Christmas depicts Irving's Christmas Eve trip by stagecoach to Yorkshire and the delightful holiday games and rituals he shared with his hosts at their home, Bracebridge Hall. Famed illustrator Randolph Caldecott's sketches provide a perfect complement to Irving's descriptions of holiday cheer.

    Pieces of History

    As others have noted, these cartoons are pieces of history and as such require a certain amount of objectivity to be truly appreciated. If you are not willing to discuss them in the historical context with your kids, then maybe you should skip this video collection.But never, ever should they be allowed to edit or censor these classics. They're too old, and to do so would be to cover-up or deny history. I'm an old cartoon buff, and it frustrates me to no end that so many classic Looney Tunes and Tom & Jerry's have been edited for television to the point where you can't even buy a DVD with the uncensored versions. Luckily the films on this collection managed to remain uncut, perhaps due to less television air time over the last 30 years.Some of the earliest Motion Pictures ever made were animated. They were shown at Vaudeville shows, which were the main form of popular entertainment of the day.

    Great my daughter loves it!

    0 5/5 The Brumley's (Washington State) - See all my reviews This review is from: Christmas Classics Vol 1 (DVD) I agree with the guy below that says that the animation is stereotypical, I was thinking the same thing when I watched it and saw how they animated the black boy in the cartoon... this dvd was made in the 50's and the world was much different then... however my daughter loves this DVD. I let her watch it on netflicks and I am getting it for her for Christmas because she loves it so much! (She is only 14 months) The classic Rudolph is great, the music is great and it catches her attention. I remember these cartoons when I was little, did no damage to me... I recommend it. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , November 23, 2010

    Not that BAD!

    0 4/5 K. Jean (Michigan) - See all my reviews This review is from: Christmas Classics Vol 1 (Amazon Instant Video) While I do see the other reviewers' points, I watched these when I was little! These cartoons are from the 30's and 40's so of course there using the veiws that were held in that TIME period, so if you are offended easily I suggest you don't watch. However I found Santy's Suprise to be cute. All the different children working together...what's so wrong with that? These used to be my grandmother's cartoons that she bought for me when they were released on VHS. My favorites were always Christmas comes but once a year, Somewhere in dreamland, and Hectors hectic life. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , September 30, 2012

    Random House Books for Young Readers

    The Grinch found the strength of ten grinches...plus two!

    I have memorized this book I love it so much! The young and young at heart will love Dr. Seuss's crazy rhymes and cool words (have you ever gotten a "fuzzle" for Christmas? have you ever eaten "who hash"?...but you must have been to Whoville!) This book is silly and crazy, but it also gives a very important Christmas message which I think has been very much lacking in our society today. It's so easy to get caught up in the holidays (or hating the holidays, a la Grinch), that we forget the true meaning of Christmas. I'm not only talking about religion (which is ultimately the reason for the season, but don't get me started!), but also the time we spend with family and friends. Here's one of my favourite Grinchy quotes: "He puzzled and puzzed til his puzzler was sore. Then the Grinch thought of something he hadn't before. "Maybe Christmas.." he thought "Doesn't come from a store. Maybe Christmas, perhaps, means a little bit... 5/5 DJ Joe Sixpack (...in Middle America) - See all my reviews, December 3, 1998

    The classic Grinch story... and then some!

    0 5/5 Matthew G. Sherwin (last seen screaming at Amazon customer service) - See all my reviews, October 4, 2007

    the best children's book EVER !!!

    How The Grinch Stole Christmas is a classic tale about greed, materialism, and the kindness of man for his fellow man all wrapped up in one great big package! The illustrations are wonderful and the rhyming text impresses me. This is a story by Dr. Seuss that is so popular it was made into a Christmastime TV special; and it deserves every bit of recognition that it gets. (Note: this story is very popular; and because many, many people know it all the way through there are spoilers in this review.)When the story begins we are introduced to the Grinch. He hates Christmas with all celebrations down in "Who-ville," a village he can see from his home on a mountain. The Grinch hates the noise, the caroling, the sharing of presents and the feast of "roast beast."Eventually the Grinch gets an idea--he dresses up as Santa Claus and uses his dog Max for a reindeer; and this perverse take on the real Santa Claus tale is meant to strike people as ugly. The Grinch comes... 5/5 0, February 15, 2008

    Is this reissue worth it?

    Released this fall, the "Christmas Story" collector's edition is really a 20th anniversary version of the classic. First, let me say I can't believe it's been out for 20 years. I thought 12, at the most 15. Wow.Briefly, for readers who may not be intimately acquainted with the film, I strongly encourage you to purchase "A Christmas Story" and make it a regular part of your holiday routine. It will grow on you with each viewing and you'll soon find its one-liners making their way into your everyday vernacular. Which version should you get? That's why you're reading this review.The original DVD release of "A Christmas Story" had no extra features. Nothing. No commentaries, no interviews, no documentaries. Just the movie.

    Hurrah for movie, Shame on DVD

    0 2/5 E. Schmidt - See all my reviews, September 2, 2000

    Exactly the same as the 2003 release

    Revised 12/09: The 2003 "Anniversay" edition of the DVD is now out of print, making this the only deluxe version of the movie available at the current time. A year ago, there were two identical Christmas Story DVD sets on the market at the same time, and this was the more expensive of the two. Seeing as how this is no longer and issue, I'm upping the score for this item from three stars to five.Original review:Don't get me wrong - I love "A Christmas Story," and I would give the film a 5-star review. The issue here is that the 2008 DVD release is EXACTLY the same as the 2003 version (aside from some slightly different artwork on the slipcover and case). There are no new special features, and the print quality is the same as before. There is absolutely no need for the studio to release this needless double dip DVD. If you don't already own the 2003 version, then this is a must have DVD; if you do, there's no need to buy the new version, unless you go for the... 5/5 0, November 7, 2008

    143/Reprise

    Easy listening with plenty of familiar songs

    With guests including but not limited to the Puppini Sisters (Jingle bells, Frosty the snowman), Shania Twain (White Christmas) and Thalia (Mis Deseos / Feliz Navidad), this album is the kind of album we have come to expect from Michael Bublé. There is one original song here, co-written by Michael with Alan Chang and Bob Rock, that being Cold December night. You might have heard every other song here before, but Michael and his supporting team bring their own distinctive touch to each of them, sometimes staying with an easy listening sound, but veering towards jazz at other times, especially when joined by the Puppini sisters.The real surprise to me was the inclusion of Santa baby, originally made famous by Eartha Kitt and recorded by many female singers in the years since. Even Madonna recorded it (for the first ... 5/5 Peter Durward Harris "Pete the music fan" (Leicester England) - See all my reviews, November 27, 2012

    Buble's Christmas masterpiece for the holidays

    Christmas is an absolutely beautifully recorded and sung album by the velvety rat pack voice of Michael Buble. The arrangements are stellar featuring big band and full orchestra backings by some of the best musicians in the business with a great deal of input from Michael himself and genius producer David Foster. Additional production by Bob Rock gives an especially rewarding re-work of Mariah Carey's All I Want For Christmas Is You. Michael slows the tempo way down and turns Mariah's festive version into a very romantic and longing song of desire and passion. What a great version of one of the best Christmas songs written in the last 20 years! Also quite amazing is Michael's version of Christmas (Baby Please Come Home). Here he wisely sticks to Darlene Love's original arrangement though the brass and drums are recorded so well and sound so bright it might almost make you forget her original version which is also fantastic. Buble modestly said that he might not have... 5/5 Robert S. Harmon - See all my reviews, October 25, 2011
