Snowed in with Christmas Movies

Mother Nature decided to do her own decorating for Christmas, and most of southeastern Michigan has been under a winter storm warning since 10:00 a.m. this morning.  The warning extends through midnight, and they're predicting one inch of snow to fall per hour.

This is what it looked like from the front and back of my house around 4:00 o'clock this afternoon.  The snow is beautiful if you can stay inside and look out at it - which my hubby and I are doing.  It's nerve-racking if you have to get out and drive in it.

We've been enjoying the Hallmark Christmas movies [minus all the commercials], and I told my family to watch the 1946 classic, It's a Wonderful Life, on DVD because we'll be playing a trivia game about it on Christmas Eve.

I bought my dad the Fiftieth Anniversary Scrapbook by Jimmy Hawkins [who played 4-year-old Tommy Bailey] in 1996, and when he passed I got the book back.

Of course, lots of hot tea accompanies our evening movie watching - Harney & Son Hot Cinnamon Spice for my hubby, and Celestial Seasonings decaf green Candy Cane Lane for me. 

What's your favorite Christmas movie?


  1. My sisters and I watched "Its A Wonderful Life" last night. We debated to watch it in color for the first time or stick with the black and white. We decided to stick with the black and white. My favorite Christmas movie is "Christmas In Connecticut" starring Barbara Stanwyck. Here in New York we received about an inch of snow. Wishing you and yours a Blessed Christmas and a Happy,Healthy 2018.

  2. My favorite Christmas movie is white Christmas. I haven't watched it yet this year but I'm sure I will. I enjoy snow when I can be inside my house, cozy and warm, watching it fall, but I do not attempt to drive in it. We got a rare heavy snowfall over the weekend, 10 to 12 inches which is very unusual for north Georgia. I stayed in the house for 3 1/2 days. And there's still snow in my yard! I watched several Hallmark Christmas movies over the weekend.

  3. Oh, there are so many! I was reminded of how much I enjoy "Miracle on 34th Street" when my niece was in a community theatre production of it earlier this month. Love that sweet story!
