Just a few more days until our Christmas in July celebration begins. Keeping everyone up to speed: Christmas TV History is welcoming guest bloggers throughout the month of July. We are all sharing our favorite science fiction-themed Christmas TV episodes, specials, and movies.
Last year, Christmas TV History hosted guest bloggers sharing their favorite Christmas TV episodes, specials and movies made in the 1990s. Remember that? The posts written about Friends and Melrose Place were some of this blog's most visited posts from last year. If you'd like to revisit any of those 1990s posts, feel free to access the archive along the right side of the blog -----------------> and return to July of 2011. I also remember awesome posts about The X-Files, The Tick, Living Single, the TV movie A Season for Miracles, Northern Exposure, Father Ted, Tales from the Crypt, South Park, The Adventures of Pete & Pete, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, and a Christmas scene from the theatrical release movie Boogie Nights. And, there was tons more. Go check it out.
This year's science fiction Christmas theme is already producing some great posts too--I can't wait to share them with you. If you're still looking to get in on the fun and want to share your favorite sci-fi Christmas episode, special or movie--contact me right away. I still have some open spots. I'd like to include everyone who wants to participate, so don't hesitate. If you're not sure about what to write on, I'll be glad to suggest something. No one has picked the Christmas episodes from Alf, Mork & Mindy, Futurama or 3rd Rock from the Sun yet--so there are clearly lots of good Christmas entertainments still available. Let me know.
If you've already reserved your title, please email your essay along with photos as soon as possible. Or at least, email me an ETA. Thank you for participating :)
Stay close to the SCI-FI CHRISTMAS in JULY celebration. I'm going to have several free giveaways. And, if you're a science fiction/Christmas fan, you should know that my book The Christmas TV Companion includes an entire chapter about science fiction Christmas entertainments. The Companion will be available for the first time in digital format, as an e-book, starting Monday July 2nd. So there's lots to celebrate this July.
