Saturday Night Live Bringing on the Christmas Spirit

29 Nov

People were getting into the Christmas spirit early this season. Black Friday and Cyber Monday kicked things off in November. They get into their Fa-La-La-La-Las pretty early every year. And while they were having their moments with televised tree-lighting ceremonies and festive concerts with Jingle Bell Rock, I took a different approach.  I laughed my way into the festive mood with some late night comedy courtesy of  Saturday Night Live

This has become one of my favorite holiday specials. I often look forward to the SNL Christmas Special and hope they include my favorites. There was nothing better than cracking up to Justin Timberlake’s charity battle with the Salvation Army Kris Kringle, The Season’s Eatings skit with Pete Schweddy, the Catholic School Christmas Concert with Mary Catherine Gallagher and Whitney Houston, and the Christmas Song with Horatio Sanz, Jimmy Fallon, Chris Kattan and Tracy Morgan.

The Christmas spirit is definitely warming up to me. Comedy and Christmas … a great combination.

    Love Saturday Night Live. Hilarious. We need to more shows the make us laugh and forget the stress of life. One of the best gifts we can get and give for Christmas.

    SNL can be hysterical…I am old enough to recall Belushi and the bees at camp. I will let you do the math. I particularly like it when Timberlake is on- funny, talented guy- are you a fan of Jimmy Fallon, too?

      Oh My God! I love Jimmy Fallon … he is my answer to those I-had-a-really-crappy-day-today blues and I need something to smack me back into normal. Chocolate usually does the trick, but Jimmy … he cracks me up. The whole History of Rap, the lip-syncing battle with his guests, and his Brian Williams rap mix crack me up! But I do recall Belushi SNL, however I also remember Church Lady.
