An Alex P. Keaton Christmas in July (in August)
Happy August 1st! And if it's August that must mean it's time for—Christmas in July! That's right, the festivities at the Christmas in July blogfest over at Christmas TV History have been extended into its 32nd day—just in time for my turn to participate. Be sure and stop by the Christmas TV Party and see some of my favorite Christmas movies, and specials. (Hint: one of them stars Michael J. Fox, seen here on the cover of a 1986 Family Ties tie-in book, pictured with future wife Tracy Pollen as Alex P. Keaton's girlfriend, Ellen). While you are at the Christmas TV History blog check out all the other fine and fascinating participants too. After all, it's never too late for Christmas in July—even if it's August. And for all you Back to the Future fans who wonder what Marty McFly might have looked like two years prior to that infamous year of 1985, no need to find a flux capacitor...just see the image at the bottom of this post from the 1983 Christmas episode of Family Ties (from the must-see Holiday Film Reviews blog).
