Re: Wizard of Oz

I grew up with The Wizard of Oz as a Christmas-Eve tradition. The whole family would watch it together, then the kids would leave cookies & milk for Santa and go to bed.

It took me quite a while to get used to the idea of watching it at other times and not in front of my Grandparent's Television.

But then, I'm much older than you. :)

Re: Wizard of Oz

I was curious about the Christmas Eve thing because I remembered it being on in January, so I did some research -

Wikipedia (for what that's worth) says that "The film's first telecast, in November, 1956, took place shortly after Halloween. The 1959 to 1962 telecasts of The Wizard of Oz occurred later in the year, between Thanksgiving and Christmas. However, beginning in the 1963–64 season the showings would occur in the early months of the year."

suspect that you're just enough older than I am to remember those Christmas Eve showings. Or the TV was different on the West coast than in the boring old Midwest, of course.
