Top 50 Holiday Foods. All holidays, not just winter or Christian/Secular Euro-American ones.

I swear, one of these is going to be food themed.

I do like the food idea, although I seriously doubt if the kind of thing I eat on my holidays would make it into this forum's overall list.

Mm... I'll go with Holiday Themed Films.

Good choices.

I will also get in on the holiday jam with holiday songs.

This will not include the Pixies song Holiday Song but it's so good, I'll play it for you now!



If I could get people together, I'd love to go caroling with songs like this. Maybe Holiday in Cambodia too.

That brings us up to three.

Holiday Movies
Holiday Food
Holiday Songs

Again, don't feel like you have to go this route but I won't lie; it's a route I like.

You bite, but your repertoire is limited.

I can name at least 25 from Christmas alone, let alone Thanksgiving, Halloween and Ukrainian Christmas.

I doubt many on TT will know 25 of them, but I'll put in for Sega Master System games.

Cool. I had the Sega Master System but I don't remember much of the games. I did have a puzzle game where you are a penguin trying to get your egg down an ice pit safely. Also, the built in snail maze game. I admit I don't have much but I would enjoy reading it and putting in a (probably) truncated list. Plus, I can vaguely describe games I rented in the hopes that other people can tell me what they are.

James Bond titles would be fun too, though I'd remember more of the songs than the visuals. I still struggle with which is the worst song: Madonna's Die Another Day (ironically, Beautiful Stranger, which she did for Austin Powers: the Spy Who Shagged Me, is a much better Bond theme) or All Time High. I guess technically the former as the latter is cheesy but at least it feels like a complete song.

Wait, can we include James Bond Junior?



EDIT: OK, so James Bond Junior's uncle is James Bond... Does this mean James Bond's brother is named James? Or is this an incest thing.

Anyway, the list so far.

Holiday Movies
Holiday Food
Holiday Songs
Sega Master System Games
James Bond Themes

Kind of apropos of nothing, but, how about top 50 animated films?

I donno where Falselogic is, so I'm going to assume he wants to pitch Fantasy Novels again and will nominate for him.

I'll be posting a poll soon, possibly during or after work.

Oh, well my number one would be the Power Crunch 1-Up bar from A Nightmare on 34th Street Part 2: Scaramanga's Revenge. It's good, but not Snail Maze good.

I'm sure there's something to fit the bill in James Pond 2: Robocod.

There's like three: proteins, carbohydrates and fats. That's all of them!

I think it's two:

1) This can go in my mouth.
2) This is large, hard or is very hot and can not fit in my mouth or will hurt me if it does.
