Carry On Blogging Christmas Countdown: 22 December

And so, once again December is upon us. This will be my first Christmas at the helm of Carry On Blogging so I wanted to go all out, bringing you a daily dose of festive Carry On cheer each day on the lead up to the 25th. 

So every day I will bring you another cracking Carry On photo with a festive theme. They will probably all be rather naughty, but hopefully all quite nice.

Today we have the cast of the original Carry On Christmas in 1969 posing for publicity before the show was broadcast. What a line up it is too - Frankie Howerd, Barbara Windsor, Hattie Jacques, Peter Butterworth and Bernard Bresslaw are all present and correct!

It's my favourite of all the Christmas specials and not just because of the cast. It's all gloriously bright and cheerful and feels like a proper Christmas panto. It's all a bit rough and ready and looks delightfully cheap at times but that just adds to the fun. You wouldn't get a programme like this one these days, more's the pity!

What a Carry On at Christmas!
