Almost Christmas (2016)

For many people, the holidays signify seemingly endless — and possibly painful — hours spent with family. The ensemble comedy Almost Christmas does a superb job of capturing the essence of both an "endless" and "painful" holiday. Set in Birmingham, the 2016 film profiles the Meyers family and the squabbles of its many spirited members — such as the boisterous Aunt May (Mo'Nique), the nostalgic Walter (Danny Glover) and the uptight Cheryl (Kimberly Elise) — over the days leading up to, and including, Christmas. It's fun, festive, and if nothing else, should be seen for Mo'Nique's fiery one-liners. Grab a glass of eggnog (and be sure to spike it with rum) for this jolly good time.

    I can relate to the BB gun and shooting your eye out. I received an air rifle
    for a Christmas present back in the early 60’s. One day i was
    in the basement shooting at the concrete walls and cans I had set up as targets.
    When I spotted a spider walking on the concrete floor I waited till it was crawling
    between my legs and without thinking pointed the rifle straight down and fired.
    Imagine my shock when instantly I felt a sharp pain between my eyes and centered
    on my nose when the BB richoted straight back. I just stood there realizing
    that if the BB had bounced an inch or 2 left or right I would have spent the
    rest of my life as a 1 eyed person entirely due to childish stupidity .
