Yes, I’m one of those people…

I have a confession….I’m a sucker for those Christmas movies on the Hallmark channel.  I am perfectly content on the weekends to stretch out on the couch and settle in with some hot chocolate and let the characters entertain me.  Sure, if I had “someone special” to share this time of year with, it’d be even sweeter….but I have faith that will come when it’s time .  But back to my being a sucker part…I love the way the movies make me feel good and give me that itch to go and do for others.  They give me hope—hope for the season, hope for living with a clearer sense of purpose.  One movie in particular I watched was “Farewell, Mr. Kringle.”  A quote I wrote down that stood out, from the character Kris Kringle, went like this, “Christmas is more than a day on the calendar, it’s a feeling—like a smile from a long-lost friend.”  Hopefully we all get that warm, fulfilling joy from giving a gift to someone we care about.  It could even be a complete stranger…..and the gift doesn’t even have to be expensive or grand gesture….just something to make their day and their Christmas season, a little brighter. 

This is my favorite time of year, if you couldn’t tell that already.  There are 20 more days until Christmas. I intend on making the most of each and every one.  So, to you and yours, all the best this holiday season!

  1. I am addicted to all the sappy stories! I just love them. And I cry listening to Christmas music. Maybe that’s a sign of a happy childhood, who knows! I love the look of your blog – new design is very pretty! Have a blessed Christmas with those that you love!

    • Thanks Tricia! I like to think that is a sign of a happy childhood—I certainly did have one and am perfectly happy with that correlation. I’m glad you feel the same.

      Glad you liked post and new look. Happy Holidays! Hope you have a great Christmas as well!

  2. Christmas is my favorite holiday, too. Love watching Christmas movies. I think my favorite is White Christmas. Hard to beat the classics — though we decided Christmas with the Kranks is one of our favorites now, too 🙂

    • I’ve seen Christmas with the Kranks…that is pretty funny. Christmas Vacation is also a good classic…can’t beat Chevy Chase as Clark Griswold.
