‘A BETAMAXMAS’ WILL WARM YOUR COLD DEAD HEART

I don’t know who is responsible for A BeTaMaXMas, but I’d like to give them a great big hug someday. The site is decked out like an 80’s basement, wood paneling and all, with a Christmas tree, couch, and an old-school 19” television in the center. There’s a remote control in the upper right hand corner, and when you click on it with your mouse, the TV is flooded with warm, glowy, nuggets of 80’s TV nostalgia, ranging from classic Christmas specials and Christmas commercials, to Holiday-themed episodes of your favorite old sitcoms like The Facts of Life and Silver Spoons. You can even adjust the rabbit ears on top the TV to clear up the snowy picture! Every Holiday season I become mesmerized by this site, and now I’m going to share my obsession with you. Enjoy!
