The staff from the Reference Department wishes you the warmest and happiest of holiday seasons!
For a festive game of Christmas Hangman, click here.
A site called The Christmas Spot offers 101 FREE videos of holiday movies, specials and videos that can be watched right on your PC.
From classic flicks (It's A Wonderful Life) to holiday specials (A Charlie Brown Christmas, Rudolph The Red-Nosed Reindeer) to holiday episodes of your favorite TV shows (The Office, Seinfeld, The Simpsons) to Christmas music videos (Band Aid's Do They Know It's Christmas?; Mariah Carey's All I Want For Christmas Is You) to commercials (remember the commercial that had Ronald McDonald ice-skating?)--even some holiday stinkers (such as the infamous and rarely seen Star Wars Holiday Special and the cult classic Santa Claus Conquers the Martians) are here for your viewing pleasure.
There's less than a month left until Christmas, so get into that holiday spirit by watching some online Christmas cheer at The Christmas Spot!
