Teaser Tuesday December 7, 2010

The first Advent Teaser comes from Matchless by Gregory Maguire. It is a retelling of the fairy tale "The Little Match Girl."

"She crouched, half asleep, till a church bell rang. It was a quarter to midnight."  

Teaser Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by MizB at Should Be Reading.

Thursday Ten: Christmas Movies I Love

One of my favorite things about Christmas is being able to enjoy Christmas movies. Starting in November I will occasionally watch something Christmas related, but once Thanksgiving is over and we are eating our way through leftovers it becomes Official Christmas Season at my house. Christmas movies are played each night, some more than once. Without further ado, here is my Top Ten list of Favorite Christmas Movies

  1. Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer
  2. White Christmas
  3. How the Grinch Stole Christmas (Animated)
  4. Nutcracker
  5. Most any version of A Christmas Carol
  6. Here Comes Santa Claus
  7. I'll Be Home for Christmas
  8. The Santa Clause
  9. The Year Without Christmas
  10. How the Grinch Stole Christmas (Live Action Version)
What Christmas (or any holiday) movies do YOU love?

Blogging The Advent

I haven't blogged in WEEKS! That is truly horrible! I hate when I ignore this blog. It isn't always amazing or anything, but I love sharing things here. Since I love sharing and I love this time of year, I had an idea. I am going to blog the Advent season. One of my favorite things about Christmas when I was younger was my Advent calendar. I loved moving my marker and getting a piece of candy each day. The anticipation and the small treat made the Christmas season even more special. Keeping that in mind, I wanted to give you all a gift this season. That gift is regular blogging! I am going to count down to Christmas HERE with all of you. I will share insane Christmas traditions and memories, my Teasers will be about Christmas related books, I will have Christmas related Top Tens, and so much more. I think that BFF1 is going to guest post a few times throughout the month, to share her own Christmas love with you all. I hope that you all enjoy this small peak into why I love this season so very much. To me there are few things that I love more than my family and the time that I spend with them all. I hope that you all enjoy this holiday season is as enjoyable for you as it is to me.

Happy Holidays!

**Disclaimer: In no way are these blog entries meant to offend if you do not celebrate Christmas for whatever reason. Regardless of your stance on Christmas I hope you enjoy the time you have with your family, whether you are celebrating a religious holiday, Santa, or just time off from work and school.
