Merry Christmas to all!

    A very Merry Christmas to you, too, Mike. I’m sure this time of year in San Diego is decidedly warmer, and less extremity-freezing in general than this time of year here in the Midwest.

    Also, it’s better to learn life lessons from Linus than from Pigpen, what with his ever-present cloud of filth, dander and bacteria billowing around him.

    Merry Christmas, everybody!

    Peace on earth and goodwill toward men.

    Merry X-mas everybody, Hoo Hoo Hoo!

    Merry Christmas to you and yours, Mr. Nelson. Long may you riff.

    Merry Christmas to all.

    And, really, do you think the networks would even let this on the air if it had been made this year and wasn’t “a holiday tradition”? He’s quoting the Bible, fer cryin’ out loud! :-)

    For those of a secular persuasion:

    Merry Christmas Mike Nelson. May the fruitcake be abundant. And may the eggnog flow like a gentle stream. And may you remain a sane individual in the midst of all your relatives.

    May your forehead grow like the mighty oak.

    Linus is a voice of sanity in this totally pc world.

    I may not be of the proper religious persuasions to say it, but Merry Christmas to all anyway.

    This is pretty much my favorite Christmas television moment of all time. Anytime this is playing in a room full of people, everyone stops and watches that speech…’s a room-stopper. Love it…

    Merry first Christmas as a married woman, MB. Enjoy. :)

    Thanks, Mike. Almost forgot to watch that, this year. Hope it’s a good one for you, Bridget, and the kids.

    A Special that reminds us of the TRUE meaning of Christmas. And with NO singing Carrie Fisher!
    Merry Christmas Mike, Bill, Kevin & to all of us who love a good riffing now and then.

    He also taught me how to take pride in my childhood security objects, and maybe turn them into jackets as an adult. Not that I… would ever … consider that…

    And, at the risk of sounding repetitive, Merry Christmas to you, and everyone at RiffTrax, and … well, just everyone in general.

    Merry Christmas to you and the family, Mike, and to everyone at Rifftrax!

    And because I can’t resist undoing a perfectly lovely and genuine sentiment, here’s a terrifying and annoying Christmas card, very much in keeping with the hippo video from the other day:

    Everything I needed to know about Christmas, I learned from the opening of Santa’s Slay:
