Blasts from Christmas past

We want to wish everyone a very Merry Christmas!

While we’re at it, here are some Christmas features we’ve done in the past that may help you enjoy the holiday, particularly if you need some distractions from your crazy family . . . .

When people make lists of the best Christmas movies of all time, there’s usually a heated debate over “Die Hard,” a classic that most guys appreciate but hardly qualifies as a traditional holiday movie. With that in mind we created our Yippie Ki-Eggnog list of five unconventional Christmas movies you can enjoy.

The best way to get through the holiday, whether you enjoy the company of your family or not, is to get a little buzzed on some great cocktails. You can browse through our Drink of the Week feature for ideas, or you can check out Bob’s Christmas Cocktail Ideas post for some drink ideas that fit the holiday theme.

We’ll end with holiday beers. The market is flooded now with all sorts of craft beers and special brews for the holidays. But here are 5 holiday classics to enjoy from an article Mike Barkacs put together several years ago. You probably can’t find them today with most stores closed but there will be plenty of drinking going on through the end of the year. Enjoy!!
