*sighs for the 300th time*

Do I really have to explain why "Baby, It’s Cold Outside" is the opposite of what people in modern day assume it's about? Out of context it sounds creepy now, but the language would have been very understood in the 40s/50s to mean the couple is trying to socially cover over up wanting to spend the night to together.

(Yes it should probably be retired, but because it's old and boring.)

The 'feminist' interpretation of the song comes from a much later time and such an interpretation doesn't provide any evidence that that is indeed what is happening in the song.

The best evidence is to go back to the Loessers who originally wrote and performed the song. In the libretto, they named to two parts 'mouse' and 'wolf.' It was eminently clear what is happening. Sure, 'mouse' is tempted, but 'mouse' also has doubts. Doubts that 'wolf' is wolfishly bulldozing over.

Sometimes is a cigar is just a cigar. And someone is pressuring someone else to smoke it.

I actually got to be lucky and go with the hubby this year at MK, last year we did AK, its fun, and watching it now trying to see if we can be seen. I hope they have the Disney Christmas Parade, how hard is it to get tickets for that, I am sure its hard, but would like to take my friends mom from Staten Island, especially since we both had our last Chemo on the same day, and she is coming to Orlando to see me during the holidays.

Unfortunately, they tape the Christmas Parade in early November, and guests are no longer allowed to view or be present at the tapings. It's Cast Members who now make up any crowds you see in the broadcast.

I'm guessing she's married to a CM...

I watched part of a special last night, but turned it off. Same old entertainment. nothing new
It was cringeworthy. I know there's a script and all, but the girl from Modern Family and the guy from (???) completely overemphasized and over-acted every line.

We couldn't get through that, so we decided to come back to it... only to be greeted with about 1,000 Gwen Stefani upskirt shots. Hey, I'm a 35yr old male. Maybe Disney was giving a little holiday present for select adul... nah I can't even joke about it, it was that bad.

That was a SHORT skirt, and the constant need to go to the cameraman below stage level made it almost seem intentional. Then they had to interview Gwen for 10 minutes.

What was wrong with the elaborate parade and surprise appearance from Santa formula?

In recent years, the parade portion of the Christmas morning show has been shot at Disneyland only. Walt Disney World is used for many/most of the live musical performances.

You're not kidding. Watching it now. I thought the interview would never end. Not to mention that version of Santa Baby. I feel dirty watching it. About the only wholesome and actually good part was the duet of the Father / Son Boccelli's.

Well I was there, hubby works there and wish I could show ya a pic but no photography or videos allowed. But, it was fun and reason I think he got to be there and take me, was because of one of his friends in either PR or marketing said he could bring me, was because I recently had my last chemotherapy and am now cancer free. So, maybe that's why since he is a rent a cop, LOL security I was able to go.

EDIT: I am talking about the recent special on ABC that I went too, Sorry if I was unclear, but that's what I went too.
