Christmas in July 2019: Skyler Harvey

Christmas in July 2019: Skyler Harvey

1. What is your favorite Saturday Night Live Christmas/Hanukkah/New Year's sketch?

I LOVED Chanukah Harry and the old one for sanitary lap protectors with John Belushi as a very drunk Santa and Loraine Neuman as the lap sitter.

2. Do you most look forward to watching holiday episodes from series? Specials? Movies? Animation? or, all of it?

If I had to pick it would be the old Rankin & Bass specials from my childhood.

3. What's your favorite soundtrack from a holiday program? (it doesn't have to have been officially released as an album--just what program features your favorite collection of music?)

Gotta be "White Christmas"


4. What one program are you patiently (or impatiently) waiting for me to review on this blog?

The Family Guy Christmas Show

5. What change in Christmas entertainment have you noticed over the years? Do you like the trend?

It seems to me that the animation and writing in the old children's Christmas specials was so much better than the modern day stuff. I much prefer the older specials.


  1. I definitely agree about the children's animation specials. I said something similar in mine.

  2. I loved Jon Lovitz as Hanukkah Harry.
