Favorite things Friday
This time for my favorite things I am going to talk about my favorite Christmas movie. That is 'Whi.te Chri.stmas'. I absolutely love love love this movie. I can't wait for this time of year just so I can watch it. I only watch it 1 time and it is always with my mom. We have made a tradition of it. Every year we have a sleep over, pajama party of sorts and watch this movie. We sing all the songs (and fast forward the one part we both hate). I could probably recite the whole movie. I have never been much of a musical girl or an old movie girl but this one is different. The dresses, the dancing, the singing were all so beautiful back then. If I have a little girl someday I hope to pass on this tradition and watch the movie with her. I enjoy this time with my mom staying up late and talking. The only thing that has put a little sadness in it is the first time I got pregnant it was right around this time that I found out and I remember going to my moms and thinking next year at this time I will have a baby with me. Next year will be different...and then it wasn't. So it is the reminder of my failure that lingers but it has not stolen my joy from this movie. I won't let it. So this weekend I will be getting in my pj's and popping in the old vcr tape (my mom has still not figured out her dvd player) and singing, laughing, and talking the way Christmas traditions should be. This weekend I will not let the Christmas that should of been get in the way of enjoying the Christmas that is. That is why this is one of my favorite things. Do you have a special Christmas tradition? What do you enjoy most about the season?
