To have a movie include all the facts involved on the topic would mean a very long and most likely dry movie. There is also the issue of time; most individuals want to watch a movie from start to finish in one sitting while a textbook can be and usually is spread out for a long period of time. Savage Christmas while having historical content focuses on soldiers who experienced it to tell the story and therefore will have an extreme bias. Diary entries used in documentaries can include exerts about the government abandoning their troops by putting them in peril as that is a reasonable response from someone that experienced this traumatic event but you would not find something similar in a
“In they all came, one after another; some shyly, some boldly, some gracefully, some awkwardly, some pushing, some pulling; in they all came, anyhow and everyhow” (Dickens 41). At this party, everyone is dancing and having a grand time. There is food, dancing, and a person playing a fiddle. Scrooge is enjoying himself. This is one similarity that I share with Scrooge, we attend Christmas parties and have a good
I received the top video game on my list. I obtained Call of Duty World War II, I also got some socks and shirts, and some other gifts too. This year was probably the first year that I didn’t get a monstrous gift. I loved my Christmas, and spending time with my family. I love Christmas, and I love christmas break.

When it comes to Christmas music and songs people usually are divided in what they prefer. There are those who prefer the classic and well-known Christmas carols, those who like nostalgic Christmas songs that bring back memories, others prefer blasting music and rocking around their Christmas tree and even those who like it all just because it’s Christmas and they’re having a ball. Here is a list of twenty Christmas songs that people never seem to tire of and that they enjoy every Christmas that comes. • At the top of this list is a version of “Little Drummer Boy/Peace on Earth” sung by the surprising duet of legendary Bing Crosby whose now swinging upon a star and perhaps whistling this tune and the other half of the duet – David Bowie. • The next song was originally written and performed by the Vince Guaraldi Trio and it was played in the ever popular “A Charlie

While reading Appenix1, I was able to get a little bit more information how cultural differences influence sensation and perception. When I read how different greetings meant different things in some cultures it made me think of different events and situations. One of the most popular US holidays is Christmas. During Christmas, most children are thrilled about one character in specific: Santa Claus. Santa Claus is known for having a big round belly, wearing a red and white suit, long fluffy white beard, and the sound of sleigh bells.
Henry’s style is different then most authors. His writings use very strong wordplay and hilarious acts of irony that really make the story interesting. In his short story Gift of the Magi, the setting is Christmas and a couple who needs to get each other gifts for this year, but they don 't have enough money. They sell their personal belongings to get the gifts. The irony of it all is that the items they sold have to do with the gifts they got each other.
Many movies that we see in the movie theaters now are an adaptation of books from the past. We have many famous examples such as Spiderman comic to Spiderman Homecoming and Doom the video game was made into a Movie starring Dwayne Johnson. Linda Hutcheon defines adaptation in “Beginning to Theorize Adaptation” as " repetition, but repetition without replication" (7). What Hutcheon is stating is that all adaptation might be copied, but it will not be the same as the original. Many adaptations can exist from comic to movie, book to movie or game to movie, but not all adaptations are successful, since most of what is done in a book or game can require a huge budget to bring to reality.

The Civic of Christmas When most people think of Christmastime, they picture Santa Claus, Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer, The Nutcracker, and snow-covered hills perfect for sledding. At face value, these age-old holiday observances are just ways of celebrating the holiday season, or traditions that have been passed down from generation to generation. However, upon further examination, aspects of the holiday season have had deep-rooted impacts on our society. During the turn-of-the-twentieth-century Progressive Era, practiced rhetoricians took strategic advantage of the opportunity to connect the emotional appeals of the holiday season with the widespread social activism that unfurled across the nation. The landmark Yes, Virginia… editorial was printed by the New York Sun in 1897 during this movement, while the Macy’s Million Reasons to Believe Campaign began less than ten years ago.
After viewing both movies, it is obvious that new movie is the better of the two movies. The new movie is better for me because it shows many scenes that the old doesn’t show and everything is new like the actor and the music has changed from the old music to today’s music. The music is better because it’s from this year. There’s more action when it comes to new movies like when Gatsby gets mad at Tom and Gatsby wanted to hit Tom but he didn’t. Another scene with action was when it showed that Myrtle was runned over by Daisy.
