Christmas in July 2017: Ronda Roxbury

Christmas in July 2017: Ronda Roxbury

1) Who's your favorite Santa Claus?

Santa Claus....merciful heavens there are so many....

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

I still love Alf!!!

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

I love Christmas movies. The meaning of the season is not only about our Savior's birth but love, joy, peace and all those warm fuzzy feelings. I will watch a Christmas movie anytime all year long.

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

We just cut the cable. We now have Sling TV and Amazon Prime. I always watch It's a Wonderful Life. I have it on VHS and DVD.  I also stream it. Usually after all the Thanksgiving meal is over and the family has gone home, Don and I will pop in the DVD and watch It's a Wonderful Life then we know the holidays are upon us!

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?

It's a Wonderful Life, How the Grinch Stole Christmas and Charles Dickens' The Scrooge.


  1. Ronda, I love your answers! It's so true... there are so many Santa's to love!

    Oh my goodness, I used to adore the sitcom Alf when I was a little girl. It's been years since I've seen the Christmas episode... I'll be sure to look it up again!

    Like you, I enjoy Christmas movies year round... I also think of it as a special way to celebrate our Savior's birth all throughout the year, plus... I always get that warm fuzzy - feeling, too!!!

    Blessings & Happy Christmas in July!!! Net 🎄🎅

  2. Good answers. It's a Wonderful Life is beloved by so many for good reasons! :)

  3. The Alf Christmas episode is high on my list too. I love how the family goes to a cabin in the mountains at Christmas, but the entire storyline is surprisingly sweet for such a silly character.

  4. I was so pleased to use a photo of Alf dressed as Santa--maybe he's your favorite Santa Claus? Thanks for participating, Ronda :)

  5. I still love the Alf Christmas episode, too. Absolutely one of my favorites and highly under-rated.
