Christmas is right around the corner and the student’s at Mercy are already getting ready. The countdowns until break are visible in every classroom and the music has already begun to play.
However, Christmas doesn’t really start until December 1st when ABC Family kicks off their “25 Days of Christmas”. As usual, these movies will be far from disappointing. The countdown starts on a strong note with National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation and Elf. Everyone better clear their schedules for December 4th at 6:00 to watch the classic The Year Without Santa Claus. Lastly, it wouldn’t be Christmas until you watch Dr. Seuss’ How the Grinch Stole Christmas (December 6th).
The Christmas Countdown is always something to rely on in the month of December. Unlike your friends, it’s always there when you have no plans on a Friday or Saturday night.
