  1. Have to agree with your Christmas reads– love them all! And after It’s a Wonderful Life, the Muppet Christmas Carol is probably my favorite Christmas movie.

    • I’ve never actually *seen* it’s a Wonderful Life (I know I know what the heck???) but it’s my husband’s favorite Christmas movie, so I guess it balances out?

  2. Love your list. It embodies everything awesome about Christmas 🙂 Hope you had a wonderful one.

    • It’s still going! 😀 Being married makes holidays complex, especially with my husband’s family all living 2 hours south of us. We have one more “Christmas” to attend and then we’re *finally* done. 😀
