By Associated Press | PUBLISHED: December 23, 2018 at 5:43 am | UPDATED: December 23, 2018 at 6:14 am WASHINGTON (AP) — The Latest on the government shutdown (all times local): 7:30 p.m. The federal government is expected to remain partially shut down past Christmas. The standoff over President Donald Trump’s demand for $5 billion to build a border wall with Mexico deepened on Saturday. Democrats are rejecting Trump’s demand as costly and ineffective, and any agreement to reopen the entire government appeared out of reach until the Senate returns for a full session next Thursday. No one knows how long the closures will last. Unlike other shutdowns, this one seems to lack urgency, coming during the long holiday weekend after Trump had already declared Monday, Christmas Eve, a federal holiday. Rather than work around the clock, the leaders of the House and the Senate effectively closed up shop. But they haven’t ruled out action if a deal were struck. ___ 5:40 … [Read more...] about The Latest: Partial shutdown likely to extend past Christmas

7 minutes ago During the holiday season, many of us have traditions to re-watch our favorite films, such as How the Grinch Stole Christmas, Elf, Christmas Vacation... oh, or Die Hard. The shoot-em-up action flick starring Bruce Willis has sparked quite the debate over the years about whether it should be classified among selections about the North Pole, the magic Christmas and so on. But apparently a lot of folks aren't willing to classify it as a legitimate Christmas movie. According to a recent poll conducted by Morning Consult/Hollywood Reporter, the majority don't say yippee-ki-yay to the idea of Die Hard being a Christmas movie. Among the 2,200 US adults surveyed, only 25% found it to be holiday fare, and among them, men were slightly more likely to think so than women. Those aged between 30 to 44 were most likely to think of Die Hard as a holiday classic. This summer marked Die Hard's 30-year anniversary, as the film was released in July 1988. During Comedy Central's … [Read more...] about New Poll Says Die Hard Isn’t A Christmas Movie
