2016 Holiday Season on Social Media
Hi Friends! Now that Halloween is behind us, I'm getting ready for the holiday season. I'm making some changes to my daily social media posts and want to let you know where you can follow along. I've amassed quite an archive of detailed discussions on Christmas entertainment--and I'll be trotting this content out again to help you rediscover holiday favorites from the past. Here's what I'll be doing:
On the Facebook page: Christmas TV History
--Each day of the week I'll be sharing another post from this website based on the following categories:
This is just a fun way to roll out the archives and I hope you'll enjoy it. Today on Dickensian Wednesday I have already shared my reading of the 1979 movie An American Christmas Carol--adapted from Charles Dickens' popular holiday tale--starring Henry Winkler. I'm looking forward to exploring these lively categories.
--Each day on Christmas TV History, I'll also be sharing a video link to a Christmas-themed episode, special, or movie. The funnest links are the rare, hard-to-find programs from the past. Look for one each day.
--I'll also post a link to the new essays I write throughout November and December, just like I usually do. You can expect a new essay on the 1966 animated TV special How the Grinch Stole Christmas, and more.
Follow along on the Facebook page to see what comes next. As always, if you skip a day on Facebook, just scroll down the Christmas TV History page wall to see what you missed.
On the Facebook page: Tis the Season TV
--Each day I'll be posting a Yuletide Memory of the Day as usual however, these are selected from the best of my archives and won't duplicate the daily links from Christmas TV History on Facebook! Yeah--I have a large archive.
--I'll also be making daily suggestions called Set Your DVRs on upcoming TV program to look for in your TV listings. If you don't watch broadcast/cable/or satellite TV, you could look for these programming suggestions on-demand, or streaming on Hulu, Netflix, Amazon, on DVD at your local library, or by whatever means you enjoy holiday entertainment.
On the Facebook page: Triple Dog Dare
--I'll be making updates about my latest book, its contents, events & book signings, and more.
On Twitter: @TistheSeasonTV
--I'll be sharing the same content (in 144 characters or less) as above. Follow me if you don't already.
I'm also on Instagram as @TistheSeasonTV--you're welcome to follow me there too.
Of course, the archives from this website are derived from the research I did and continue to update for the encyclopedia I wrote Tis the Season TV. From the same research, I've also written The Christmas TV Companion, Merry Musical Christmas, Vol. 1, and Triple Dog Dare. Yet this website's content is a small portion of the Christmas programming discussed in the encyclopedia and the other books. You can easily purchase any of these books--fulfilled by the publisher 1701 Press--directly from this website. Just click on the SHOP tab at the top of the website.
Feel free to follow any or all of these networking locations--and join the conversation. Social networking is about being social so please feel free to share your favorite memories from these programs or ask questions.
If you change your mind and don't want to follow my posts, just change your notifications or unfollow. It's that simple.
And, if you aren't seeing the daily posts from these facebook pages as you like, go to the home page and make sure you're receiving notifications. If you comment, like, and share the posts--this increases the page's visibility in your newsfeed. Again, if you miss any of the daily posts, go directly to the page wall and scroll down to see what you missed--like, comment, and share to see future posts. Let me know if you have any questions.
If you'd rather go through this website's archives yourself (independently of social media links) PLEASE do so--feel free to use the SEARCH BOX and type in any title you'd like. If you're on a computer, the search box is located at the top of this website on the right hand side. If you're on a mobile device, scroll to the bottom and hit view web version--and you should see the search box again at the top on the right. If I haven't written about your favorite Christmas episode, special, or movie yet on the website, let me know--maybe I'll cover it soon.
