This may be the best holiday post from any blog on the planet! My favorite: Santa and Ulzana's Raid.

Did you get the opportunity to attend any of these?

One holiday matinee I went to while in elementary school - a screening of THOSE DARING YOUNG MEN IN THEIR JAUNTY JALOPIES which was free if you brought at least one canned food item for the local food hamper.

Great post! What an impressive collection of ads! For anyone interested in the children's matinee, i just posted the second part of the CHRISTMAS THAT ALMOST WASN'T documentary on my BALLYHOO youtube channel... as well as a SANTA CLAUS CONQUERS THE MARTIANS tv spot with MYSTERY SCIENCE THEATER alumni KEVIN MURPHY'S commentary. Check it out at: http://www.youtube.com/user/BallyhooMotionPics

Great job, Chris!

You are aware that some of these are available as a free download on www.hulu.com, including Santa and the Three Bears and Santa Claus Conquers the Martians. Go to the site and type in the search key the specific title, or type in "Christmas" or "Santa Claus" in the key word search to search through all the holiday-themed films to find them.
