Hi Everyone!

Many thanks to the host of this event: Jenna Jaxon!!

Also, just a reminder: If you haven't checked out my other giveaway over at Swept Away by Romance, this is definitely the time to do it, because I'm raffling off the whole set of my Highlands Trilogy AND a KINDLE FIRE 8.9 (raffle ends 12/13/2012)!

~Blog Post~

I just love holiday movies. In fact, I recently streamed a very funny one called THE SANTA INCIDENT, which stars Ione Skye and Greg Germann (you may remember him from his Ally MacBeal days). The story centers around two kids aiding Santa (and foiling "a pair of overzealous Homeland Security agents") to reconnect with his elves after he was accidentally shot out of the sky when he flew through restricted military airspace. What a HOOT! There's a rather meh love story (because they're pretty much a prerequisite for holiday movies), but the real enjoyment comes from Germann. I recommend it if you like a good chuckle.

My twelve favorite Holiday Movies (not in order):
The Family Stone
The Holiday
When Harry Met Sally
Home For The Holidays
Scrooged
Dr. Seuss' How The Grinch Stole Christmas
The Christmas List
A Christmas Story
Love Actually
Surviving Christmas
Christmas Vacation
Home Alone

I left out oodles, but these are the ones I tend to go back to again and again (even when it's NOT Christmastime!)

How about you? Do you have a favorite you want to share (or agree on)?

    1. Oh, yeah! I love those, too. I just watched Santa Claus is Comin' to Town again, and I enjoyed it just as much as I did the other many times I watched it when I was a kid. I found myself singing along to the songs, too!

    1. That's one that shows up on a lot of people's lists, but I haven't watched it (yet). It didn't seem like my cup of tea, but so many love it, I think I'm going to have to stream it this year. Thanks for the idea!

  12. I love a ridiculous movie from the mid-1990s called Mixed Nuts. It's a funny movie and I probably like it more because of things that were going on with me around the release, I still will watch it every time I see it on.
