Winter brings Christmas! Yea!


With the coming winter season, we anticipate the Christmas season!


The Etsybloggers Blog Carnival asked about what seasonal movie we anticipated. The first one that comes to my mind is "It's a Wonderful Life!" I love that movie! Here's the YouTube link to the trailer: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LJfZaT8ncYk
(Also, earrings above are from Manhandled on Etsy--Click the picture to see more.)


Everyone has had those days where they think life is not worth living. This movie, although touted in the trailer as a love story, is an exploration of what would happen if you were not here! Every one of us could actually think about this and come up with some of the positive things that everyone would miss about us! Great exercise.


But the movie that I look forward to wasn't a real hit at the box office when it came out. I predict it will become a classic because of the subject matter. It's Polar Express! I love the theme about the doubt associated with believing! I love the facial expressions on the boy and on Tom Hank's face. Great stuff!

I'll have to check out Polar Express, I haven't seen it yet. (I'm a bit behind on movies!)

A Wonderful Life is my favorite Christmas movies...I think. There are so many wonderful ones to choose from but Christmas would seem incomplete without watching that one. I do love Polar Express. The animation in that movie wows me every time. My favorite scene is the Hot Chocolate scene. Love it!

Hi Linda! I just love It's a Wonderful Life, I've never seen Polar Express, but it looks really good. Maybe this year, I'll get to see it! Hugs, =D

We enjoy watching It's a Wonderful Life too although we haven't seen the Polar Express yet. We'll put it on our holiday movie list this year!

Somehow that movie always depresses me...I mean I know it has a happy ending...but I think I get stuck on the depressing parts :P

Love those earrings--so dear and clever.

I'm going to have to see Polar Express, that's apparent. It's A Wonderful life is definitely a favorite, but I think my all-time most-loved is Miracle on 34th Street. I just love seeing Santa proved real!

Ani- I love that one too!

It's a Wonderful Life is a favorite. The first time I saw it, it was the Marlo Thomas version. Miracle on 34th Street is great, too. My favorite is How the Grinch Stole Christmas. must see Polar Express.
