Also, the 56-year-old “Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer.” And for all you wild and crazy youngsters out there, “Grandma Got Run Over by a Reindeer” will be barreling your way, its unfathomable charms still a mystery after 20 years.While it is true that all of us desperately need to get out of the house, most of us still want (need?) to take refuge in the holiday-TV bubble.

Biden and Sisi: A favourite dictator no more?
The presidential race in the United States had divided Egyptians for weeks. While activists and opposition figures pinned their hopes on Joe Biden, pro-regime citizens voiced full support for incumbent president Donald Trump, who has been on good terms with President Abdel-Fattah el-Sisi over the past four years.Egyptian private satellite TV channels and other media outlets loyal to the regime repeatedly over-analysed the contest, accusing Biden of being pro-Muslim Brotherhood, legally designated a terrorist group in Egypt since 2013.'Ikhwanophobia' often appeared on the surface as the Egyptia...
