Crackin My Nuts

The Christmas spirit is building slowly. Yesterday we went to a production of "The Nutcracker." It was put on by a local group, so it was nothing awesome, but even though many of the performers were amateurs, they did their very best. The primary performers were definitely on their game. There was also a live orchestra, so that added a lot to the show. The whole concept was that it was related to New Mexico, so some of the dances in the 2nd act had Southwest flair. Of course my main interest in the first act is the rat and mice costumes. They were all done very well and the person performing the Rat King had a great comic streak. In act 2 there were kids in jackelope costumes, sheep costumes, and one in a roadrunner costume. The Spanish Dance brought down the house because it combined ballet with Flamenco. That's REALLY big in these parts. I'd say that probably 90% of the audience was there because they knew a performer.

We have also started watching classic Christmas specials like "The Year Without a Santa Claus" and "Santa Claus is Coming To Town." The other day I popped in "Christmas Vacation." We also caught "A Muppet Christmas Carol" which neither of us had seen. Highly recommended! To top things off I also watched "Bad Santa" which was on demand. We might give "The Krampus" a watch later.
