Holiday Blog Challenge! Day 4


Christmas Movies!  I love them. I don't watch enough of them. I don't understand why they always have a crisis that magically gets fixed on Christmas, that's not real life. Or maybe it is.

I like the classics: A Christmas Story, A Wonderful Life, and Miracle on 34th Street

I like the comedies: Deck the Halls, Christmas with the Kranks, and The Santa Claus (I, II, & III)

I even like the animated movies:How the Grinch Stole Christmas and A Charlie Brown Christmas

I really enjoy a good cheesy holiday filled film. I enjoy it more if I have some cocoa and cookies to eat while watching.

Holiday Blog Challenge! Day 3

I'm back with Day three of my holiday traditions and today we are talking decorations! This might be my favorite part of the holiday season. 
The first year I moved away to college, I purchased a fake tree and a great deal of ornaments. My color scheme was girly and I loved the pinks, purples, and blues. I also bought glass balls in the same colors, high heel ornaments, and lots of silver accents. I have since increased my ornament collection to include ornaments form vacations, gifts, and random things I like. If the ornament has glitter or a funny saying, I will buy it. The rest of my apartment was always decorated as well, I hung lights, garland, a wreath, and various candles and knick knacks for the holiday season. I always thought the apartment was quite festive.
This year I am in a conundrum. All of my decorations, including tree and ornaments, are in Florida. I will greatly miss gracing my living room with a splash of color and a whole bunch of glitter this year. On the bright side, I now live in a city that takes their holidays very seriously. I cannot step down the street without seeing a string of lights or hearing the classic tunes. It really makes shopping and commuting more enjoyable. I am going to do my best over the next few weeks to take some pictures of the decorations around the city that I love.
