BeTaMaXMas Is Perfect for a Snowy Weekend

TV A bunch of us are anticipating a pretty hefty snowfall this weekend. The perfect activities for such weather are baking, drinking hot chocolate, and watching TV shows...from your childhood.


One of our lovely readers (hi Dawn!) emailed us a couple of weeks ago asking if we could remember a site, "which streamed old 80s sitcom holiday specials. The site had a shot of an old dial-knob tv, and you could watch stuff like the Facts of Life, Growing Pains, etc." A bunch of knew instantly what she meant, but could not remember at all the name of the site. It just so happened that I also had been looking for the site, and Dawn's request reignited my fire.

Finally...FINALLY today after many fruitless Google searches, I found it. BeTaMaXMas. It looks like your den or living room from the 80s, complete with wood paneling and afghans and nice, old TV set with a TV Guide to go with it. The set streams holiday programming and TV commercials from the mid 1980s and you can switch channels and adjust the bunny ears.

Because I'm a total sap, I've been "watching TV" all afternoon and getting a little teary, thinking of me as a little kid, excited for Christmas and watching all of the radtastic Christmas programs.
