Now, you know I love Christmas music, but a close second goes out to Christmas movies. Hallmark Channel, thank you for producing all those heart-warming films to watch as I wrap and create Christmas goodness. Now, since we don’t have cable, I mostly check out my movies from the public library. I’ve also added some to our family DVD collection.

My all-time-favorite is White Christmas. If you haven’t seen it, go–no run–to find it and watch it. I think it’s free to watch on Netflix and Amazon Prime this year. What can I say…the music, the costumes, the dancing, the romance, the patriotism. It’s got everything.

    For a talent show at my other school, my sister and I did the song “Sisters”
    We sang it wearing cute red dresses, and holding parasols instead of feathers.
    I LOVE Christmas!

    My favorite Christmas movie is “The Nativity” because it tells what it was like when Jesus was born and it gives me a good visual of what was happening during that time.
