Martin Klimas's Amaryllis IV (2007)

Are you in need of an injection of holiday spirit but can't want to wait for the networks to program another masterpiece from the Rankin/Bass oeuvre for you? If so, we suggest clicking over to A Betamax Xmas, where you'll find a wondrous, rotating assortment of eighties-era holiday kitsch —everything from Cher guesting on Pee Wee's Playhouse Christmas to ALF's Special Christmas— all framed as YouTube insets on a television that comes complete with rabbit ears and snowy reception.
