Ethel: I’m sorry, we were supposed to stop watching Christmas movies? It is never, I repeat, NEVER, too early to watch Christmas movies. 

Edith: I truthfully don’t watch many Christmas based movies besides the one classic… “It’s a Spongebob Christmas!” Just kidding, it’s “Elf.” Do you have any favorite Christmas movies, Ethel?

Ethel: ALL THE CHRISTMAS MOVIES. I grew up watching every single iteration of “Charles Dickens The Christmas Carol,” and it’s tradition to watch them every year. And of course, it’s a must to binge watch Hallmark and Lifetime movies when you want to depress yourself. 

Edith: I’m sorry Ethel, but I rage whenever somebody suggests a cheesy movie from Hallmark. They’re too predictable. “Woah, that lady is going to fall in love with the mall worker she just met two days ago because they share a love for Christmas? So unpredictable! “ Just like the other 50 movies with that same plotline, except maybe he works at a supermarket. Or SHE works at the mall.

Ethel: You definitely have to be in a certain mood to watch them, but it does have some variety! Sometimes the lady falls in love with the Grinchy dude and reminds him about the joy of Christmas. Or the dude is a Father Christmas wannabe and thaws the ice cold heart of the NYC mogulette. See? Variety!

Edith: You’re proving a point, but maybe not the one you’re thinking of.

Ethel: yOu’Re pRoViNg a pOiNt… You’re just jealous because you wish you could enjoy them like me. But anyway, Holly Jolly, I really don’t have a good answer for you, since I enjoy them year round. 

Edith: Sorry we’re barely getting to your question, we ramble. A lot. I don’t celebrate Thanksgiving, so I give myself a week of cooldown from Halloween before busting out “Elf.” But I mean, who are we to tell you when to start watching shows and movies you enjoy?

Ethel: So, Holly Jolly, I hope this helps you. This is a hot button issue, so honestly, do whatever you want to celebrate how you want!
