Christmas and New Year
Last week and next week we are doing special Christmas-themed entries – including an office party, a Xmas house party (and murder), festivities in hospital, a Christmas panto, and that memorable scene of wholly unsuitable presents from the beginning of Pursuit of Love: ‘my wicked parents turned up trumps.’
Christmas has featured in other entries already. There’s a party in this entry by a guest blogger, from the aptly-named A Week in December, and oh look, here’s one of the guests:
Gladys Mitchell’s Mrs Bradley goes to the Christmas dance at a teacher training college, and has her wardrobe severely criticized, while Meg and Jo are invited to a New Year’s Eve party in Little Women, and are panicking about gloves.
Adrian Mole goes to a fancy dress party for New Year’s Eve 2002, and is horrified by his partner’s choice of costume:
And there is a hilarious scene of cocktail waitresses having a disastrous New Year’s Eve from the book How to be Lost – ‘why is that stripper crying?’ indeed.
Meanwhile Anne Shirley – Anne of Green Gables – gets the dress she has always dreamed of from Matthew, in a scene to make a stone cry.
