Live Poll: All I Want For Christmas...

So, I know Christmas is a long time away (and honestly I can wait, lol) but polls need to be carefully and lovingly developed, and that takes time. My poll is about responses from movies and T.V. about what the characters want for Christmas.

Here's the list for now https://www.imdb.com/list/ls049272296/

I found a few by searching that you may be able to use:

"I want to be your girl, that's what I want for Christmas."
https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0039545/...

"I don't need anything more for Christmas than this right here: my family."
https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0170016/...

"I am not sure what I want for Christmas this year. Sometimes it is very hard to decide. Perhaps you should send me your catalog."

This is a poll suggestion, but it had not been marked such.

Well, I guess I didn't see it as a poll suggestion because I'm not suggesting that the list go live.  I just need help getting options to put on the list.  Then down the line it will be ready.

Nia and Jeorj,

I updated the title of the title of this thread to match the title of the thread. I also included "Poll Suggestion:".


Ironically, when I saw the title of the thread, I planned to suggest that you change the title to:
All I Want For Christmas...

... you already had that as the title.

Jeorj,

Your comment was apropos. Nia had "All I Want for Christmas" as the title of the list. I updated the title of this thread to match.

It should actually be "for" in lowercase, no?

This poll suggestions seems like it is going to end up with a lot Hallmark entries. I always liked Sally Ryan's request in The Hunt for Red October (1990). She declared to her parents life would be a loot less lonely if her parents would buy her a baby brother."Her parents reasoned with her  and got her to settle for her father bringing home a 'brother' for her teddy bear Stanley. I am not sure it was in the context of a Christmas request, but it seems the initial request if filled would be a Christmas-level type request.


A similarly grand request came from Natalie Wood's Susan Walker of Edmund Gwenn's Kris Kringle in  Miracle on 34th Street (1947) when ask for a Cape Cod style house on Long Island with  aswing in the back.

Thank you, can you please tell me exact line Susan says when asking for the house?  :)

I couldn't find a clip or a listing on wikiquote. As I recall she asks for a house and shows him a picture in a magazine, as proof he is Santa Claus, when Kris is putting her to bed in the original movie.



She is more specific once she gets the gift on Christmas, as seen in this clip.

I always thought that tracking Santa stuff was cute... wonder if they track the Easter Bunny... or the Great Pumpkin?  :D

Narnia,

To my knowledge, no governmental organization tracks the Easter Bunny or the Great Pumpkin.

https://www.norad.mil/About-NORAD/NORAD-Tracks-Santa/
NORAD Tracks Santa


24 hours a day, 365 days a year, NORAD tracks everything that flies in and around North America in defense of our homelands. On Dec. 24, we have the very special mission of also tracking Santa.

NORAD has been tracking Santa since 1955 when a young child accidently dialed the unlisted phone number of the Continental Air Defense Command (CONAD) Operations Center in Colorado Springs, Colorado, believing she was calling Santa Claus after seeing a promotion in a local newspaper.

Air Force Colonel Harry Shoup, the commander on duty that night, was quick to realize a mistake had been made, and assured the youngster that CONAD would guarantee Santa a safe journey from the North Pole.

Thus a tradition was born that rolled over to NORAD when it was formed in 1958. Each year since, NORAD has dutifully reported Santa's location on Dec. 24 to millions across the globe.

Thanks to the services and resources generously provided by numerous corporate contributors and volunteers, NORAD Tracks Santa has persevered for more than 60 years. 

Though the program began due to a misdialed number, NORAD Tracks Santa has flourished and is recognized as one of the Department of Defense's largest community outreach programs.

Each year, the NORAD Tracks Santa Web Site receives nearly fifteen million unique visitors from more than 200 countries and territories around the world. Volunteers receive more than 130,000 calls to the NORAD Tracks Santa hotline from children around the globe.

This year, children and the young-at-heart are able to track Santa through Facebook, Twitter, YouTube and Instagram.

Ed,

It's been common for the local and network news to mention that NORAD tracked Santa Claus on Christmas Eve. Even though I do not remember "Uncle" Walter and Huntley and Brinkley saying this on their Christmas Eve newscast, I have to believe they did.
