Bring on the Holidays! Food. Movies. Books.


 popcornThanksgiving is right around the corner and for my family, this day marks the kick-off of the holiday season.


Tons of parties with good food. Snacks to curl up on the couch with and munch on while watching a sentimental holiday flick.

I love it! If I can, I watch:

The Grinch Who Stole Christmas

Charlie Brown Christmas charlie brown dancing

It’s a Wonderful Life!

Rudolph the Red-nosed Reindeer


Then I cram in these:

You’ve Got Mail

While You were Sleeping

Christmas in Connecticut

The Bishop’s Wife


And for Christmas Eve, my family watches:

Stalag 17

White_Chrismas_filmWhite Christmas (and sing the songs!)





All pretty standard fare – right? No? You mean Stalag 17 is a war movie?

LOL. Well, it is. But it takes place on Christmas Eve and there are lots of Christmas references in it with a great resolution in the end. Having boys, by incorporating this one, the romantic and silly ones are easier to take.

What’s your favorite holiday movie?

So what is new? Why Season of Magic, a holiday boxed set, is now FREE at Amazon and all the other great e-retailers. My romantic comedy story is Holiday Disaster (Christmas + Bad Plumbing = Disaster). Here’s a bit about our stories:

Noel Noel Noel by Merry Holly ~ Dumped and lonely, is it possible to find love at the local mall? Noelle thinks not, but a chance encounter with Chase Clayborne while Christmas shopping has her rethinking her rigid set of rules.

A Cinderella Christmas by Cara Marsi ~ Jessica Gallo no longer believed in fairy tales or happy endings. And she certainly didn’t believe she’d find her Prince Charming at Saks Fifth Avenue. Her Fairy Godmother thought differently.

Matchmaker Matchmaker by Bobbi Lerman ~ With Chanukah around the corner, is there enough magic left for a matchmaker to bring Molly’s cynical heart back to life?

Yuletide Bride by Gerri Brousseau ~ The Dowager Duchess’s decree that her grandson must marry before Twelfth Night or relinquish his title and fortune sends him into a tail spin. Without any prospects and with only two weeks until Christmas will Stuart Nelson find himself destitute or will he find The Yuletide Bride?

Holiday Disaster by Vicki Batman: The week before Christmas and all is in disarray when a librarian experiences horrible plumbing issues and a Mr. Maintenance Man who isn’t nearly as jolly as Santa Claus.

    Hi, Marian! I love It’s a Wonderful Llife! When Harry says, “the richest man in town,” I get teary-eyed. And yes, the original Miracle on 34th Street is so good. That one kicks off on Thanksgiving with the parade.

    Sounds like a great family time! Being Canadian, it’s not Thanksgiving here, but my hubby is an NFL fan, so he watches football, and we do a big meal of ham and scalloped potatoes 🙂
