Now, for me, reading a holiday book doesn’t much put me in the mood to celebrate and I much prefer watching holiday movies because the visual is there for me to see. As a kid I always had my favorites that I watched over and over with my siblings such as; The Little Drummer Boy (which always makes me cry), The Littlest Angel (a really, really old movie), and of course A Charlie Brown Christmas. I don’t watch these much, anymore, because my kids never really got into them. Although, as they get older, I’ve been able to get them into watching some of the old movies I loved as a child, like White Christmas. Over the years, it’s even become a tradition to watch a holiday movie on Christmas Eve. Last year I made my family “sit through” The Homecoming....for those not as old as me, that would be the movie made back in the seventies about the Waltons (John-boy?? Not ringing any bells?...oh well) Half the kids enjoyed the movie, the other half were bored, but they humored me. Haha This year I chose, The Family Stone, as our Christmas themed movie. If you haven’t seen it yet, you should. It’s a fun movie.
So, what about you? Do you have any favorite holiday movies you can’t wait to watch?
