Whatever happened to those great Christmas specials of years-gone-by? You know the ones I mean. We had Bob Hope with the troops, the Osmond Family, Andy Williams, Red Skelton and so many others. They were such wonderful shows.
I especially liked the “family” Christmas shows like the ones the Osmonds did. They made it look as though you were invited into their home for Christmas. (Continued below video)
While it’s true that many of the stars I’ve mentioned have passed on, it’s sad that no one has really stepped in to fill the void. It seems as though the networks don’t feel that we would want to see wonderful holiday specials like these anymore. Personally, I believe that this type of thinking is wrong. Thankfully, many of these wonderful classic specials are still available on DVD so we can continue to enjoy them year after year.
