The website Tugg.com put together a list they called the 'Top 8 Feel-Bad Holiday FIlms' but the surprising thing about the list is these might be my top holiday flicks. Not sure what that says about me!
#1.) "Die Hard"
#3.) "Bad Santa"
#4.) "Batman Returns"
#5.) "The Nightmare Before Christmas"
#6.) "Eyes Wide Shut"
#7.) "Lethal Weapon"
#8.) "Kiss Kiss Bang Bang"
What are YOUR favorite holiday flicks?
OK, help me out here, I'm confused. Are there REALLY adults out there who still believe in Santa Claus? Or are they SAYING they believe in Santa because he represents the spirit of Christmas?
Either way, according to a new survey, 37% of ADULTS say they believe in Santa Claus. That's 44% of women and 30% of men who say they believe. Broken down by religion, 47% of Catholics say they believe in Santa . . . 38% of Protestants . . . and in the most random finding of all, 12% of Jews.
In the same survey last year, only 30% of people said they believe in Santa Claus.
SO WHAT HAPPENED TO THESE PEOPLE TO MAKE THEM BELIEVE MORE THAN THEY DID LAST YEAR? I'm guessing they got what they wanted under their trees. And I bet they weren't injured on the holiday.
It's hard to imagine a worse Christmas activity than a family trip to the emergency room because you hurt yourself. Even watching "Jingle All the Way" with ARNOLD SCHWARZENEGGER and SINBAD sounds better than that.
A new survey of people over 45 by the American Osteopathic Association came up with this list of the top six ways people get hurt around Christmas.
So be careful with all of these . . .
#1.) Slipping and falling on ice.
#2.) Shoveling snow.
#3.) Participating in winter sports.
#5.) Accidents traveling.
#6.) Wrapping presents.
Yes, 7% of people said they've suffered some kind of physical pain in the past from wrapping presents. The survey also found that 45% of women and 39% of men who hurt themselves during the holidays will try to ignore the pain until after Christmas.
So be careful when you have that 3rd cup of cheer!
