And that's exactly it.
It reminds me of going through the radio times with my gran who was housebound for most of my childhood and who died when I was 11.
The Christmas radio times would arrive and we would go through it together and she would mark the things she wanted (and didn't) want to watch at the times she was at home alone over the Christmas period.
It was in the days before video recorders etc so if you didn't watch it when it was on you didn't see it and she always complained about them messing about with her regular programmes at Christmas.
So for me it's a childhood memory that I still like to do today as it reminds me of her and an online version wouldn't be the same. We rarely actually watch the things we've highlighted but that's not the point for me, it's the act if doing it that's important.
So yes in response to Carlos R it is still one of the best bits of Christmas for me even now and it brings a tear to my eye just thinking if it.
