Despite the fact that I've used Christmas in Connecticut for the logo, my choice is actually going to be White Christmas.

A successful song-and-dance team become romantically involved with a sister act and team up to save the failing Vermont inn of their former commanding general. (from IMDb)

Holiday Cheer: 6/10 Quite honestly, I've long argued that this movie is not strictly a Christmas movie. It can be watched at any time of the year. The Christmas part of the movie lasts for about 10-20 minutes in a two hour film. However, as the movie does begin and end on Christmas day, it counts!

Feel-Good feeling: 10/10 This movie is so fun and so funny. I laugh at the same lines every time and certain songs (cough cough "The Best Things Happen While You're Dancing" cough cough) make me feel all happy about life - which is perfect at Christmas time. Good humor, good romance, and good music blend together in a fantastic feel-good movie in time for the holidays.

Overall: 10/10. This movie is always a winner in my book. Definitely one of my favorite movies of all time.

Happy Holidays

Happy Holidays! I hope everyone is having a delightful and delicious Thanksgiving!

Now that the Christmas season is (almost) in full swing, I can begin a project that I've been itching to do:

The 12 Days of Christmas Movies

I had thought it would be barrels of fun if a bunch of us (12 to be exact) made a list of classic Christmas films. They don't have to be old movies but since we all like old movies I think that would be best. Here's how it will work: I'll start the ball rolling with my choice of favorite old Christmas movie and then whoever wants to join in can sign up now. Just write down what movie you're going to do so we can avoid duplicates. Please make sure you do your movie posting before December 23rd so that on December 24th, I can compile a list of all of the movies everyone did.

What do you think? Good idea? I'll write a new post with my personal choice and you can comment on either this post or that one with your choice of film.

Something's gotta give.

Aaah!!!! November is over half-way done and I haven't written a post in a month!!

This is so depressing. And I really, honestly, truly wish I could say, "I'll do better this time" and actually do it. Ugh. I don't know what I need to do to fix this situation. Maybe a new format? Maybe my old format is getting stale. That's probably it. I just hate to start with something new when I have unfinished business. For starters, my top 100 list isn't anywhere near completion. Hm. I do have a little holiday project idea that I'm pretty excited about. I thought that I'd wait until after Thanksgiving to set it into motion though.

I need to figure out how to get my blog back up and kicking. You guys would know best because you're the ones reading it. What do you want to see? Is there stuff I've done in the past that you'd like to see more of? Please let me know! I'd love to hear your thoughts!
