Christmas Movies, Music, and Reads

Christmas Movies:

We are roughly a month into the Christmas Movies so I thought I would share with you the ones I have liked so far.

Hallmark Channel:

🎄 Never Kiss A Man In A Christmas Sweater

🎄 Christmas With The Darlings

🎄 One Royal Holiday

Hallmark Movies and Mysteries:

🎄 The Christmas Doctor

🎄 Deliver by Christmas

🎄 The Christmas Ring

I am not completely sold on the Lifetime Movies but I did like The Yule Blog one.

On a side note: I love White Christmas but have not watched it yet this holiday season. But I have never seen Miracle on 34th Street or It’s a Wonderful Life. Maybe 2020 will have to be the year. 😷

Christmas Music:

I am not a huge fan of Carrie Underwood’s but I have been listening to her new Christmas album some and I will admit she can belt out the hymns. On a side note nobody sings White Christmas like Bing Crosby. Guess you know my favorite Christmas song and album now.

Christmas Movies Week 1 Takeaway

Christmas Movie Season has started! I just love when the Christmas Movies start playing 24/7. Here are a few takeaways I have observed from the first full week.

1) Lifetime does not have movies 24/7 (even though they are advertising it)

2) I’m not sold on this Saturday and Sunday 8:00 new movies on Hallmark and 10:00 new movies at 10:00 on Movies and Mysteries. I get why they are doing it, but that means I have to stay up till 12:00 if I’m really into the Sunday night movie and my alarm goes off at 4:40 on Monday morning.

3) While the Lifetime Movies are okay they just don’t hold up the Hallmark Movies (at least to me).

4) Maybe it’s because we went so long without new movies I am actually enjoying some of the new movies and not feeling like they are the same plot just with different actors.

Christmas Season is Almost Here 

This week is the week.  By Friday all three Hallmark Channels and Lifetime will have 24/7 Christmas movies.  It gets earlier and earlier each year.  Before long they will be starting in September.  Don’t get me wrong I enjoy a good Christmas movie but after a while I get a little tired of them.  But then again I am the same person that is thinking about switching over to all Christmas reads.  

Christmas Movies Start This Weekend

Thats right the Hallmark Channel starts their Christmas movies this weekend and we haven’t even had Halloween yet.  Could we please get one thing over before we start another?  And I don’t even like Halloween but I would like to be able to get through that before I have to start thinking about snow and Santa and Christmas shopping.  

In Search Of My Christmas Spirit

Usually I love Christmas time and last year I had all my gifts purchased by this time but this year I just can not get in the Spirit.  This year I don’t know what to buy the people on my list and it just doesn’t really feel like Christmas time.  I’ve been watching the non-stop Christmas movies on Hallmark Channel and usually those make me happy but not this year.  I have listen to the Duck Dynasty Christmas cd at least fifty times, and while I love it, it too has not gotten me in the Spirit.  We are on week two of four of Secret Santa at work but it just isn’t the same this year.   A few weeks ago I tried watching my favorite Christmas Movie White Christmas and I feel asleep.  I have started my Christmas cards but again it’s half hearted.   I don’t know when or where I lost my Christmas Spirit but I would love to get it back.
