Of Writers and Prose: ‘Tis the Season for Holiday Books and Movies!

I love this time of year. I’m not a Christian but you don’t need to be to love the feeling that comes with the season. Working in retail, it’s easy to become disenchanted with the whole holiday buy-this-or-your-Christmas-will-be-ruined mentality of commercialism, but I don’t let it get to me. One way of doing that is watching the holiday movies that come out.

This year I’m going to try something different. I have A Christmas Carol on my tablet and I’m going to read it. Of course I’ll watch the movie as well (the 1951 version, of course), along with It’s A Wonderful Life, A Christmas Story, and if I’m lucky, I’ll find One Magic Christmas on television.

Oh, I have to share this with you. I heard it last year and it’s so awesome! This has gone into my holiday song rotation.

  1. Christmas was a lot less stressful for me this year since I bought all my gifts online.

    Like you, every year I have my list of Christmas movies. It always puts me in a good mood.
