Christmas in July 2017: Jennifer Lundgren

2001's Call Me Claus.
 
Christmas in July 2017: Jennifer Lundgren, from Stockholm, Sweden

1) Who's your favorite Santa Claus?

That is tough. I really like Richard Attenborough [in 1994's Miracle on 34th Street], but I also like Nigel Hawthorn in Call Me Claus and who can resist Whoopie Goldberg in white dreds. She ranks as the most original.



2) What's your favorite Christmas episode from a TV series?

I really like "Twas the Episode Before Christmas" from Moonlighting and "The Ghosts of Christmas Past" from The X-Files. Though technically a solstice episode I also like "A Solstice Carol" from Xena. Perfect for the Swedish midwinter.


3) Do you enjoy watching Christmas entertainment year round or do you only like watching it during the holidays? And, why?

Year round, when the mood strikes. Either when it is so hot outside and want to see snow. To being depressed and wanting to feel uplifted.


4) This is the 21st century--how do you watch TV and/or Christmas entertainment?

I am in Sweden so not much comes on the TV. I have Netflix and numerous DVD's in my personal collection. And whatever I can find on YouTube.


1942's Holiday Inn

5) If you were to be stranded on an island (maybe Christmas Island in the Indian Ocean!), what three Christmas movies, specials, or episodes would you like to have with you?

1) White Christmas
2) Holiday Inn (it covers all holidays after all)
3) Miracle on 34th Street (the original)

If I get 5, I would say A Charlie Brown Christmas and Die Hard. It's good any time of the year.
