The month in blogging:

The big feature on the blog this month was Eight Days of Christmas, a not-quite-annual, eight day celebration of holidays in movies and classic television. If you missed out on this year’s celebration, start with Day 1, highlighting The Dick Van Dyke Show‘s only holiday special!

A new almost-weekly feature kicked off in December: FilmStruck Friday, reviewing films from the new TCM/Criterion streaming service. This month’s films were The Girl I Loved (1946), While the City Sleeps (1956), and Lady Snowblood (1973).

FilmStruck Friday is an “almost-weekly feature” for good reason: The first Friday of every month remains dedicated to the popular “Favorite Things About…” series! December’s featured film was Les Girls, a 1957 musical.

Here’s to the New Year!
