Christmas came early! Kurt Russell gets into the holiday spirit dressed as Santa Claus while filming in Toronto

EXCERPT:

His stellar career has seen him on stage and screen for more than five decades.

And Kurt Russell quickly got into character as a lovable Santa Claus while filming a new Netflix movie in Toronto, Canada, on Sunday evening.

The 66-year-old legend looked every inch the jolly holiday gift-giver as he showed off a luscious grey beard while riding on the roof of a bright red sports car.

...

Decked out in an updated Santa Claus costume which included a bright red shirt and matching pants, golden buttons ran down his chest to reveal a thick black belt around his waist.

He covered his hands with elbow-length black gloves and wore black leather boots while filming.

It will be interesting to see how he will portray Santa. I like other films he has done.

Tango & Claus

 

Marty, is he a relative? By his hair grow, I'd say you two are cousins.

 

I like the Steampunk influence; it's fun and different. Would I want a copy of the suit, sure, however, how often would it be worn?

I can see you wearing it daily..... with a sportscoat underneath!  I think if I had the resources and the groomers and make up artists that Kurt has... well who knows?!

You know me too well, Marty. Those gauntlets are amazing. The clothes would go well with my new car.

So far I like the look, for me the Tim Allen look has run it's course.  I find myself going more or les back to the Miracle on 34th look with a little flare.  The woodsman look is appealing to me.

If this picture is any indication it looks like either a few inches of extensions or he must really be able to grow a fast beard.

Wild, wild west! Russell has been with partner Goldie Hawn for 34 years and they share a son Wyatt, 31; seen on Instagram

I like the combat/engineer style boots.  I wish we could see the suit better, looks like minimal fur, might be hard to wear alone without the red leather fur coat.  I think people would think that is not enough fur on the suit itself.  Really like the gauntlet gloves , I like the whole look.

Caleb, I was wondering if they were logger boots from WESCO based on the treads of the soles. You can order them in different heights. This pair looks to be below the calf.

There's a heated discussion in the Flowers' household over laced jump (combat) boots vs. unlaced boots. Mrs Flowers likes the laced look. I'm unsure if it would be accepted in favor of a slightly more traditional look like the Xelement 1440 'Classic' Engineer boot.  The discussion will likely continue into the Fall when I finally have to pick something.

Oh, and my brother and son who live in the Toronto area are on the look for some Santa-looking dude with a long red leather coat. I asked them to acquire it and send it to me! ;)

The suit makes him look like a "Hells Angels" Santa. An updated look?

Personally, I am more traditional and wear the pull-on style of boots. I understand that there is evidence for both laced and unlaced styles, but that is my preference.

If I had a more modern take on Santa's suit I think lace-up boots would look OK, but my look is more traditional so I agree with you @Santa Bruce Geron

I gotta say Kurt Russell looks awesome and very cool as The Big Guy! His wardrobe has a superhero look to it — I’m sure audiences of a certain age will like this new look Santa Claus — but for me, the traditional Santa in Miracle on 34th Street and even The Polar Express is timeless. I’d really like Kurt’s red leather Santa coat — it’d look nice in my wardrobe!

      Children prefer simple objects over toys because they’re “not limited” to being a single thing
      For kids, versatility might be the way to go — as far as toys are concerned, anyway.
      Zime Science
      May 2, 2019
      by Alexandru Micu
      EXCERPT:

      I have it on reasonable authority that kids are very likely to ignore a particular toy and make a starry-eyed beeline for the box it came in. I haven’t got any of my own, so I can’t attest to the accuracy of that, but I do have a cat — so I can relate to how confusing such an experience might be.
      But fret not, parents around the world, for science comes to the rescue. A new study from the University of Alabama reports that children, particularly those at preschool age, are probably attracted to generic objects because they make for more versatile toys.
      “The inclusion of generic objects like sticks and boxes may allow children to extend their play because the generic objects can be used as multiple things,” said lead author Dr. Sherwood Burns-Nader, UA assistant professor of human development and family studies.
      “Pretend play such as object substitution has so many benefits, such as increased socialization and problem solving.”
      A cardboard box can become virtually anything in the mind of a child, the researchers say. In contrast, a spaceship or unicorn toy — despite being much more visually appealing — is doomed to remain a spaceship or unicorn for as long as you play with it. And therein lies the reason why children, especially younger ones, would generally prefer to play with the box.
      Children often substitute one object for another during play. A stick can become a sword, a rifle, or a pen. But such substitutions aren’t made lightly — the object has to have a passable resemblance to the one it’s being substituted for. As such, an object’s features such as shape or markings can disqualify it completely for a certain play-task.

      Santa's Parade of Lights
      March 13, 2019 @ 10:07 AM · 
      Edmonton, Alberta 

      "With sad hearts we announce that RWE Events will no longer produce Santa’s Parade of Lights.
      Thanks to all the sponsors, participants and most importantly, people of Edmonton for their support.
      We’re proud of our little parade and the joy it brought to so many people."
       
      SOURCE:

      I have been the Santa in this Outdoor Parade since it started in 2015. Of course I feel sad about
      #1, Edmonton losing a parade (Calgary has not had a parade for 6+ years)
      #2, That a big emotional thrill is now gone from this Santa's life. (Anyone who does a major parade in a large city, especially a Capital City, can attest to the emotions involved in getting ready for and actually partaking in the annual parade.)

      I got this email back from the people who have staged this parade in the last 4 years...
       
      Hi Carlo,
      We share your disappointment, believe me. Unfortunately, though, we just couldn’t get the financial commitment we need to keep it going.
      As you know, Canadian Tire dropped out as title sponsor last year (we don’t know why), and there just isn’t anyone else stepping up. Plus, we applied for a grant from the City and didn’t get it.
      It is very discouraging that there wasn’t enough support overall in Edmonton for this parade.
      However, we loved doing it and especially loved working with you every year! We really will miss that!
      Anyway, I enjoyed our experience last year and at the same time, anything is possible! Someone might step forward and make this happen. But for now, so long!
      Enjoy your Santa duties elsewhere this year. And remember – if we ever do resurrect the parade, you will be first Santa we call!
      Take care and thanks for your kind words, Carlo!

      The post-Christmas blues are a very real thing. Once the date of December 25th has passed the specter of December 26th is an ominous marker to many. It sits there on the calendar like the Ghost of Christmas Yet-to-Come. Silent and foreboding, the very image of the hooded Angel of Death it seems to be. And why not?
      Just about anywhere you look Americans are tossing trees to the curb, ripping down lights from rooftops and radio stations are flipping back to everyday music. What took months to build gets deconstructed in a matter of a couple of days.
      It does not have to be like this.
      You do not have to take down your tree.
      You do not have to kill your lights.
      You do not have to turn off your music.
      You can, instead, stand up to the madness around you and let Christmas linger a little longer.
      The secret to avoiding the post-Christmas blues is deconstructing it much the way you built it in the first place.
      For me, Christmas often gets started in July. It is easy then, in the heat of summer, to imagine the frosty glow of our Christmas windows, the frothy foam of our cocoa, and the homey warmth of the decorated tree. Of course, we can’t GET those things in July…but it’s fun to think of them as we sit in a darkened room and watch Christmas movies when it is blazing outside.
      This is classic, hardcore denial. And it is good for you.

    • Auld Lang Syne
      Every New Year’s Eve at the stroke of midnight, millions around the world traditionally gather together to sing the same song, “Auld Lang Syne”. As revilers mumble though the song’s versus, it often brings many of them to tears – regardless of the fact that most don’t know or even understand the lyrics. Confusion over the song’s lyrics is almost as much of a tradition as the song itself. Of course that rarely stops anyone from joining in.

    • Merry Christmas, My Friend
      Every year around this time, some variation of this poem is circulated online. The poem is generally credited to “a soldier stationed in Okinawa” or more recently since September 11, 2001, “a Marine stationed in Afghanistan”.

      However, the poem’s true author is Lance Corporal James M. Schmidt.

      Originally entitled, “Merry Christmas, My Friend”, Corporal Schmidt wrote the poem in 1986 while serving as Battalion Counter Sniper at the Marine Barracks 8th & I, in Washington, D.C.

      That day the poem was placed in the Marine Corps Gazette and distributed worldwide. Schmidt’s poem was later published in Leatherneck (Magazine of the Marines) in December 1991.

      EXCERPT:

      There is a new Christmas movie headed to theaters this Christmas about Charles Dickens about his creation of A Christmas Carol and Christmas purists hate it. Already.

      The film has a stellar cast that features the dreamy-eyed Dan Stevens as Dickens and the legendary Christopher Plummer as Scrooge. Here is the trailer:

      “This is a very presumptuous film,” said Christmas fan and would-be film critic, Arnold Yates, via MSN. “Charles Dickens was great but he certainly didn’t invent Christmas. Bah Humbug!”

      That sentiment is growing online as the preview makes the rounds.

      Seeking recognition is a downward path for a legend who performs his tasks in the veil of night.

      Recently, a fellow portrayer of Santa posted an image on Facebook that they constructed to look like a magazine cover with him on it and several story snips like many publications have on their covers.  You may have seen it if they are your friend on Facebook.  It looks okay.  The composition is good, but the rendering when uploading it to Facebook became distorted it and it is quite pixelated when you look at it from a development standpoint.

      In the last couple of days, on several different social media and bidding sites, an item has been offered for sale that in my opinion is cause for suspicion.  I would like to bring that product to your attention.

      There is some disagreement over whether or not it is an infringement or not.  I believe it is close enough to be considered as an infringement, but that is not the only the reason behind my post.
