Take heart

My Christmas spirit is not in jeopardy. I am still going to enjoy the season and I am offering this proposition for anyone who reads the blog:

The Virtual Holiday Movie Party 2006

For those of you not in the know, I have an annual holiday movie party. The first year was 1998. And I have had one every year since. Anyone reading this blog is invited to participate. For everyone who reads this blog and lives in Birmingham you are invited to my party on Saturday Dec. 9th (time TBA) at my place. For anyone who lives somewhere else I encourage you to watch along with us at home. The proposed movies/holiday specials are:

A Charlie Brown Christmas
Christmas with the Kranks
It's a Wonderful Life

If these are movies that you have seen or want to watch something else, past movies are as follows:

Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer
A Christmas Carol
Love Actually
National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation
(and anything else you want to watch that gets you in the Christmas mood)

Snacks are also important. We always have regular and chocolate Rice Krispie Treats, cocktail weenies, and Rotel dip. Anything that is high salt, fat, sugar or other various processed foods. Mmmm-mmm.

Go forth and be merry

Oh, Katie... my favorite tradition of all. When I move back, I am totally back on board for this one.

Actually, I have already watched Charlie Brown Christmas... you know Katie, I think you should include a Christmas Story- this one is my favorite. May I also note that there is a Christmas Story marathon every Christmas Day on TBS or TNT that I never, ever get to watch because my daddy hogs the remote?

The TNT marathon is the reason I don't inlcude A Christmas Story in the lineup. It starts Christmas Eve - you should watch it then.

I've never seen Christmas With the Kranks so since you recommend it, I'll watch it this year.

Can you please email me or post the instructions for chocolate rice krispy treats?

Love Actually might be my favorite movie of all time.
