Friday Fun: Happy Holidays!

Friday, December 23

More than likely I won't be around the blog for a few days with final holiday preparations and then the actual celebration with family and friends.  I know you're probably as busy as I am so I'll make this short and sweet.  I hope you have a wonderful Holiday, whether you celebrate Christmas or not!

One thing I do every year is watch my favorite holiday movie, or at least one of them (the other is Little Women, but that one makes me cry which is not very pretty for Christmas photos).  I love love love The Bishop's Wife.  The original with Cary Grant and Loretta Young, (definitely NOT the remake with Whitney Houston...which was just a total travesty).  It gives me such a feel good Christmas cheer because at the heart it's about reconnecting with who you are, with your family, the person you love but may take for granted, friends you may have lost contact with, and religion.  Yes, it has some silly scenes, but for me it just adds to the charm :)  And it has one of my favorite Christmas trees ever!  

If you've never seen it I highly recommend it.  I know most people like It's a Wonderful Life, but for me so much of that movie focuses on the depressing part of his life and you only get the feel good moment a few times...mostly at the end.  The Bishop's Wife gives me that feel good, smile out loud kind of feeling all the way through.   I would try to explain it, but this review on Amazon says it all. Can't beat that feeling ...nor all the tinsel on the tree :)  What's your favorite holiday movie?

Happy Holidays!

Carrie, this is my #1 Holiday movie. We just watched it last night. The remake was a tragedy period. The Bishop's Wife is the best feel good holiday movie for me. :)
Hope you have a Happy Holiday.

I love Cary Grant movies! I will have to check this out.

Merry Christmas!

I haven't seen The Bishop's Wife in years. I'll have to Netflix it.

My favorite is Miracle on 34th Street. We just saw a life production last week which was great. They had made a musical out of it.

My favorite is White Christmas. I love musicals and the message of this movie hits close to home.

Carol L, I think we might be kindred spirits my friend! LOL, I haven't seen it yet this year, but I'm looking forward to it. I have serious Christmas tree envy every time I watch the movie and wish I had his decorating powers to just swish up and down and have the most beautiful tree ever :)

Lexi, You are in for a real treat my friend. Especially if you love Cary Grant! I'd love to know what you think about it once you've watched it. Probably not his best movie, but still one of my favorites :)

I love musicals too, but never heard about a production of Miracle of 34th st. I just went to see Beauty and the Beast with my sister and niece and it was fabulous! I always kind of forget how much I enjoy them until I'm sitting watching them :)

White Christmas is a GREAT holiday movie. If I had to pick one other than the Bishops Wife for feel good holiday cheer, White Christmas would be it has a romance x2, so what could be better than that!

I can honestly say I have never seen. Never heard of it before now, either. But I'll have to look for it next time I go movie hunting. :D

I hope you have a wonderful holiday, be safe and enjoy!

Merry Christmas. My favorite is "A Christmas Story." The 24 hour marathon is starting tomorrow on TBS.

Happy Christmas my Friend. Wishing you a joyful and restful holiday.

My FREE Kindle Quest

I've wanted a Kindle for what seems like forever, but haven't been able to afford it (and that's saying something since I can justify the cost of just about ANYTHING that I really want). I've tried winning one in one of the many giveaways that have taken place over the couple of years, but with no luck :( So I've decided to take matters in hand so to speak :) I've now decided that I am going to accumulate enough Swagbucks from my Swabucks searches to buy in essence my new Kindle will be FREE...funded entirely by my internet searches done on Swagbucks. I'll keep you informed of the Great Kindle Quest below (in case you're interested....if not feel free to just skip over this part, but really who wouldn't be interested in a FREE Kindle?)
Goal: $119
Current Swagbucks Amazon Gift Card balance: $90.00
If you'd like to learn how you can earn Swagbucks and earn your own Amazon Gift Cards to buy books, a Kindle or other merchandise sold at Amazon contact me and I would be more than happy to tell you how I plan to go about it. (just so you know you can earn both and gift cards on this rewards site)
