I don't know what Christmas movies have to do with my Journey to 50. Except that my journey to 50 includes two months of Christmas movies... starting as soon as they air on TV in Early November. That is a significant portion of my journey... watching old favourites...
and looking for new favourites.
I guess my infatuation with Christmas movies helps to make Christmas a journey instead of just a day. Every year I look forward to the re-airing of old favourites and dive into the schedule to find new stories.
Someone asked me last week, what I do for fun. Well for two months, I enjoy when Hollywood gets in the Christmas spirit. As commercial as some of the entertainment gets, there is still enough grace in some the hearts of the production staff
and as a result... some awesome stories
have reached my TV screen.
In this post, I have spread out some of my favourite selections and the trailers to go with them. From Bing Crosby to Macaulay Culkin and from Santa to Jesus... my tastes span the horizon of creativity
I look forward to the Journey of Christmas... more than the day. The spirit of the season is worth so much more than the 0.003% the calendar allocates for it. Movies, music and festive events keep my heart a buzz for a good two months plus... spreading the joy... making it last a while longer.
My hubby figures I like watching because of the romance. There is a big romance factor in my favourite shows, but I do adore the children. After all, it's children that make Christmas... Christmas. So find me a country setting, with the cutest kid and the most adorable awkward couple...
and I am set
There aren't many good Jesus movies that come out at Christmas time. Seems strange, but they are rare. But sometimes a real good one comes out and I am hooked.
So there you have it.
A glimpse in to my journey...
My Journey towards Christmas.
And maybe my list of favourites from Tinsel Town will inspire your own journey.
