Does anyone know if this will be televised, here, in the US? I’m in South Carolina, and don’t have TV. But I do have access to one….I would LOVE to hear Mr Griffiths read this wonderful Holiday Classic! And see the tree, lit, of course!
Thanks

And instead of A MOVIE, we get our beloved cast to light up trees. Better than nothing :)

I know that the Macy’s Thansgiving Day Parade, is, of course, televised, but I don’t know about the tree lighting. Oh I would love to see it!

I like the idea of him lighting up trees. But I would like it more if, just to say, the HBP film were released on december. Christmas present?
Sorry for the english, I’m italian.

That’s great that while Richard and Daniel are in NY they are doing other things for us to see them in.

it would be nice is people just got so over the fact that HBP is delayed and not mention it in every new post on Leaky. We get it, get over it, and wait until July, because it ain’t coming sooner.

Coonfederate Lady, The Christmas Tree lighting is carried on local TV every year but I’m willing to bet galleons it’ll show up on YouTube pretty quickly.

I love the Night Before Christmas, I read it every christmas eve in a nice little edition of the poem. Plus did anyone hear of Daniel Radcliffe donating his jeans. Seth people are upset, its Harry Potter season and I could have used the pick me up. A tiny tiny tiny part me of thought maybe it was all just a big marketing plan and they’d surprise release it, phew lucky that was only a tiny part of me
