I love Christmas movies. My favorites include: White Christmas, Miracle on 34th Street (the original one), A Christmas Carol and It's a Wonderful Life. My all time least favorite is: A Christmas Story. The leg lamp, the tongue stuck to the pole outside, and shooting his eye with a bb gun all do nothing for me. But....since Thanksgiving evening....(I did wait til after the turkey was put away and everyone had gone home)....I have been glued to cheesy Christmas movies. I am addicted to the Hallmark Channel for sure. November Christmas, a Hallmark presentation from last week was a heart wrencher and I loved every moment of it and cried my eyes out. Yep...the cheesier they are the more I seem to want to see them....or at least that is what Frank says. He watched football all weekend...and I watched the Hallmark Channel. I cannot help the fact that I love those feel good movies. I love saving Santaville, meeting the Christmas stranger that is the ghost of someone's son, engagement stories, finding a dad for Christmas, finding a mom, finding a dog....oh yes...Hollywood is obviously aware that I (and I am sure millions of others) are out there...waiting for a sappy, sad/happy movie about the Christmas holidays. I have always been that way. When my daughter Kat was little she and I loved to watch Christmas shows....from Rudolph when she was very small to White Christmas....where else can you get movies for a brief period of the year...that are not about murder, sex, and foul language....no wonder I like them. I know some of you are just like me. I would like nothing better than to stay cuddled in bed from say...Black Friday until Christmas Day....with it snowing outside....while I watch cheesy Christmas movies. NOW....I don't think they are cheesy but Frank sings a little song to me to the tune of Don Ho's Tiny Bubbles....it goes like this.....Cheesy Movies on my tv.....I have to laugh. It is funny because Frank is a big sap when it comes to tear jerker movies. So, let me ask you a question.....leave me your answer in my comment section. What is your favorite Christmas movie?....and why? Have a Happy Day!
I am a woman who wears many hats and loves them all. I am a singer - I sing with the group Still Magnolias. I was part of the original First United Methodist Church Arbor Praise Team until we moved. After 24+ years of teaching English 11 and Spanish I - II at Benjamin Russell High School I decided to take a job closer to home. I now teach Spanish I & 2 at Randolph Co. High School and Wadley. I thought I was getting close to retirement and looking forward to it, but decided to move my cheese and try something different. I am a preacher's wife and a preacher myself. My husband Frank is the pastor at Rock Mills United Methodist Church and I am the pastor at Midway (Wedowee). It has made our conversations interesting, to say the least.
