Christmas Movies I Watch Every Year

A Year Without a Santa Claus:

The best part about this movie is of course the Miser brothers! I love Snow Miser and my sister loves Heat Miser, we set our ringtones to one another's favorite during this time of the year. I own this movie on DVD and watch it at least 3 times in December. Its definitely a treasured classic.


This is by far the best Holiday movie ABC Family has ever made. The cast is gorgeous and the magic is just enough to be considered believable and the message is cute. The "real" boy she ends up with is also in Hart of Dixie and he is one very adorable man. I don't own this but it is on Netflix.

Jingle All The Way:

I fell in love with show as a little girl. My dad wasn't an Arnold fan so I was never allowed to watch it. When I went to see my friends we would watch it but now I finally own a copy and watch to three times a year.

Holiday in Handcuffs:
This was a cute movie. I am a huge fan of Melissa Joan Hart and this does not disappoint. I also watch this on Netflix just about every year.

I saw this in theaters and absolutely loved it. I couldn't believe I had to wait a whole year for the movie to come out of DVD. It was a painful wait but now I watch this every year and its always just as funny as it was the first time I saw it.

The Grinch who Stole Christmas:

I prefer the classic animated version from Jim Carrey's adaptation. This is my grandmother's favorite. On Christmas morning we would all watch this to get our minds off the presents and to wait for the food to cook.

Santa Claus is coming to Town:

I only get to watch this show when I have access and this isnt my absolute favorite classic. I normally get to watch it every other year.

What movies do you watch during the holidays? Let me in know in the comments below.

Love and Other Theories by Alexis Bass

Love and Other Theories

Aubrey Housing and her three best friends Melissa, Shelby, and Danica, create a set of rules designed to keep them safe from high school heartbreak.

Such as:
1.       Do Not Fall in Love
2.       Don’t Be Needy
3.        Don’t Give Your Heart Away.

Their plan was working just fine until the sweet and caring new boy Nathan Diggs arrives, pushing Aubrey out of her comfort zone and breaking her most trusted rules.

Readers will reminisce their past high school relationships after they read Love and Other Theories.  Alexis Bass does a great job creating a heartfelt believable world.  I absolutely loved this book, with all of its young humor and easy to love characters. I found the theories to be quite interesting and plan to test them out during my remaining high school years. I found I connected emotionally to the entire plot because nothing was too farfetched. I also loved that the concept of the book is the theories which protect the best friends from falling in love however the main character does the exact opposite of that. We get to see how Aubrey and her gang learn to grow and accept the turn of events that have been spiraling due to the lack of control. Bass, has a sense of humor that shine in her characters. This novel has been beneficiary with insight on farewells for college in a couple years, it really brought me into reality and brought my priorities into prospect. This book is definitely for girls in high school who has a sense of humor for sure! I will be recommending this book to all of my friends and we will try to live by the theories and see how it works out for us and compare it to Aubrey’s experience.
