So, I am totally stealing this blog post idea from one of my favorite blogs, Southern Belle View. They are a group of talented Christian authors, who all grew up in the south or set thier books in the south.
Basically each one of them takes a turn, and they have a theme each week. This week they did favorite Christmas book, song, and movie. I was going to add tradition into the mix, but I think I will save that for another post closer to Christmas.
My favorite Christmas…
If you have ever met me, you know one thing for sure, I am a total book nerd…
My collection has incresed to the point where I could start making furniture out of books.
Anyways, I had a really hard time thinking of a Christmas book that I like. The third book in a series finally came to mind, I have read, and re read this series, the book is called The Winter of Candy Canes by Debbie Viguie. I can’t write too much without giving it all away, but its really cute, I got my set at Mardel’s.
Favorite Music: It’s no secret I am in L-O-V-E with Michael Buble’s voice… But when he made a Christmas Album, it just combined two things I completely adore… his Frank Sinatra-esque voice and Christmas music. WIN. And to be completely honest I am kinda liking Justin Bieber’s Christmas music too. Not a hater or obsessed fan, just didn’t like a lot of his music… But I’m digging the song Mistletoe. (*halfway shamefully ducks head, and turns music up louder*).
Favorite Movie: As a total movie buff, I have several.
Classic: You cannot beat White Christmas. Bing Crosby. Need I say more?
Hallmark: Of all the cheesy Hallmark movies I love… I love Holiday in Handcuffs the most. It stars Mellissa Joan Hart, and Mario Lopez… it’s one of those fake boyfriend to impress annoying family movies, but I cannot get enough of it. (A Christmas Card is a close second, which is a super touching military story, with some great comic relief.).
Animated: I don’t know if it is possible to beat all the old clay animation Christmas specials. They all go together, so I cannot pick just one. I love all of those. Rudolph, might have the slight advantage, but not by much. They’re all great.
