As I was contemplating what to share with you as we begin the “Ber” months, I found myself reflecting on my childhood. I believe the true magic of Christmas as an adult is often the feelings you hold onto from childhood. That made me decide that I would share some of my best childhood memories and family traditions. We always spent Christmas Eve at my grandparents’ house. My grandmother and I would spend a couple weeks baking cookies and pies for the party. It would be the whole family...

When asked this question, I thought about it for the umpteenth time. I was asked if I felt "While You Were Sleeping" is a Christmas movie. The main plot is about the romantic and family relationships. It does take place at Christmas and they do celebrate Christmas but it's not the main plot. I feel there are multiple levels of Christmas movies. I would put "While You Were Sleeping" as a Number 3-Christmas-Adjacent level. Number 1 is the purest form. It includes Santa and the main plot revolves...

Happy Christmas in July everyone! This year seems to be simultaneously flying by and moving at a glacial pace thanks to the COVID quarantine. I'm so excited to be enjoying Christmas movies on Hallmark Movies & Mysteries and I can't wait for the Hallmark ones to start. I opened up this post to your questions. Here are the first three I received. (1) christmas.autumn_: How do you stay Christmassy in the summer? Because I live where it is warm all year, the weather isn't a factor for me like...

I hope this finds you well. People are venturing out as businesses are opening. I'm choosing to stay home and only leave when absolutely necessary. So far that's once since the end of February. Luckily I'm happy watching my Christmas movies. It's 9 days until we reach 6 months to Christmas! The halfway mark. It's exciting for me because that's my birthday! Which means Christmas is my half birthday! I did add a personal Amazon wish list on the bottom of the website. Please don't feel any...

I hope this message finds you all well. I know with everything going on right now everyone is feeling stressed and some are a little overwhelmed. I wish I had magic words to make it all better for you but my only magic word is "Christmas". I find that escaping into Christmas movies where everyone is happy and things always work out is good for me. I read an article (I didn't keep it and now can't remember who published it) but they said that in a world full of change and chaos, watching movies...

I hope this finds you all well. I finally left the house a few days ago after 85 days at home. It was definitely weird. There were so many cars on the road and people out and about it felt like before the virus. Still, it was good to get out. I'm continuing to watch new movies and adding reviews to the site. I have 895 reviews posted and a few more ready to add. I've watched 174 Christmas movies so far in 2020. That, of course, includes movies I've watched before. I have, however, slowed down...

Well, we are on what feels like day 1,000 of the stay at home orders for non-essential workers. I'm used to being home most days but I imagine it must be difficult when you're used to be out and about. I'm really sad to see how quickly we've gone from gratitude for doctors, nurses, teachers, grocery workers, etc. to anger and protests. I wish we could all be united in our stand against this virus. I don't know how long all of it will last but I wish each of you peace of mind and heart as we...
