Carry On Blogging Christmas Advent: 19 December

And so, once again December is upon us. This will be my third 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.

Oh dear, this picture is wrong on just about every level but I couldn't resist sharing it! It's taken from the 1973 Carry On Christmas special and features Sid as a rather naughty department store Father Christmas and Barbara as a rather mature school girl! It definitely couldn't be made today but back in the 70s things were a little different!

The scene is a Carry On classic. Joan Sims brings her naughty daughter Virginia (Virgin for short) in to see Santa for her Christmas pressie. The dialogue between Sid and Barbara is extremely fruity and about as naughty and provocative as Carry On could ever get but it's all in the name of festive fun and somehow, they manage to get away with it. Just.

What a Carry On at Christmas!
