"DECEMBER 15: In light of the fact that my parents have tickets to see the new Star Wars this Friday, I am trying to squeeze in my outlined Christmas movie viewing with a Star Wars marathon leading up to Friday.

After watching Ernest Scared Stupid in October for my Halloween countdown, I figured I might as well watch Ernest Saves Christmas. I grew up on these Erne"
