Christmas Movies and Writing.

It's getting real hard to find a movie on Netflix that isn't a nauseating romance Christmas movie. Today I opted for a classic, and then looked to see what I have in my video cabinet and pulled out all my Christmas movies. Tomorrow it will be 12 days before Christmas, and so far, I've watched 12 movies. Movies I've seen, in no particular order because I couldn't tell you exactly when I saw them, except they were in the last 12 days, including today. How the Grinch Stole Christmas - watched today. My Santa - yesterday Merry Kissmas A Christmas Prince A Christmas Candle A Holiday Engagement A Christmas Kiss II Angels in the Snow Santa Paws II Spirit of Christmas Christmas Miracle at Sage Creek Good Luck Charlie, It's Christmas Tomorrow I'll start watching movies from my collection. I've also put in a couple thousand words on New Horizons, my NaNoWriMo project. I'm hoping to have that one finished by February. We'll see if that happens. I also need to start work on Thread of Evidence so I can get that one published next year. That has been my day. How was your day? Thanks for reading.

@just4him I'm sure you heard of the Alabama Senate race and Moore. My brother will be here until next Tuesday, then back with his wife and dog on January 4th for the month. Back and forth all winter.

@DianneN I don't pay attention to the news very often, but I do recall seeing that name. I'm glad your brother will be with you for the next week.

I didn't know it was an election year. I'm glad your brother came for dinner. It makes being there extra special when family shows up.

Those Charlie Brown ones are so cute. Is the Christmas Miracle one a Ingalls family one? I saw one real good Hallmark one that was The Nine Lives Of Christmas, or something along those lines, which was really good.

No, it wasn't an Ingalls family movie. I will be watching Charlie Brown Christmas in the next 13 days. I think I saw The Nine Lives of Christmas in the lineup on Netflix, but haven't seen the movie.

I think it would be very hard for me to get into Christmas with warm weather, though I know for you that's normal.

Your post made me think..one time I decided I wanted to start a collection of Christmas movies. The first one I got was a Little House on a Prarie one where she has to sell her horse because the family needs money or something like that..It was such a tear jerker..the saddest movie I ever saw..my Christmas movie collection ideas went right out the window after that.

I am about to write about it I think. good going on all your projects there. I know Netflix seems to have less fun things these days except for the same old stuff. also they keep putting out more Netflix originals before they finish the ones we got addicted to . so tired of them. I am spending more time on my other channels like hulu etc.

Years ago I watched a show, I believe it was called The Christmas Box. It had the actor that played John Boy Walton starring in it, Richard Thomas, I believe his name is. it was such a good movie. I also read the book, it was really nice

@Elizaby The book was far better, I highly recommend it if you get a chance try to read it. I read it every year, it brings me into the true Christmas spirit.

How did you do for nano in November, Valerie? I forgot to look. I didn't realize that Netflix has movies. We just got our first digital TV, although we were watching my daughters before she move and took it with her last spring. My other daughter that moved back in added us to her Netflix account. We are finding shows we enjoy. I will tell my husband about the movies. Thanks.

The live action movie. I'll have to look, but I thought I had the cartoon as well. I know I didn't pull it out of the cabinet, so I'll need to look again to see what else I missed.

It has been quiet. It looks like I am going to have to find a inexpensive portable dvd player so I can watch one of my favorite christmas movie Scrooge with Albert finney I love the music and some of the last scenes when Scrooge is escorted in a iced cold portion of hell to his office and "demons" bring his chains which are bigger than Marley had and start to wrap them around him when he wakes up in his bedroom with a sheet wrapped around his .neck

I generally don't like Christmas movies but my favourite one is called 'The Christmas Gift' (1986). It stars John Denver. Good luck with your writing.
