It Isn't Christmas Without... {12 Days of Christmas}

Today is Day #6 of #12DaysOfBlogging with Amber and Erin.


Today's prompt is "Is isn't Christmas without..."  My answer for this prompt is sooooo easy!  Christmas is by far one of my top favorite holidays!  I have so many things that I love to do during the holiday season and here are a few that make my season complete.

Hallmark Christmas Movies!
This makes my husband upset and annoyed that I love them so much.  I can't help myself.  I know that they are all sappy and cheesy and mostly all end the same "boy meets girl. they fall in love.  they fight.  they makeup in time for the holiday" but I just love them.  Now, don't get me wrong, there are certain ones that I do not like ::i.e. Eloise movies - that little girl is just annoying:: but for the most part they have a part of my Christmas spirit that I cannot help but love!

Christmas Classics!
As much as I love Hallmark, I love the classics too!  White Christmas is my all time FAVORITE Christmas movie followed closely by Miracle on 34th Street ::the original!::  White Christmas is on the list partly due to it being a musical.  I am a sucker for all things choreographed and love story.  I always wanted to be Judy while she danced and have a love like Betty.  Oh just thinking about it makes me smile.  I might just have to go home and watch this this afternoon.  It never gets old.  And Miracle on 34th Street.  This is the oldest memory I have of a Christmas movie.  I fell in love with it as a child and continue to love it as an adult.  I cannot wait to pop these into the good ol' blue ray and sing away and love the Christmas spirit.

Mommy Nena Cookies!
These are my favorite Christmas tradition in my family.  My mom and I have made these cookies every year during Christmas for as long as I can remember.  They are cookies that were passed down to us from my Mommy Nena ::my dad's mom::  While these cookies are in no way, shape or form good for you ::even more so than most cookies:: they are to die for!  They are a sweet mixture of flour and cinnamon and while dry, they compliment your coffee, milk or tea quite nicely.  :)  The recipe is secret and something that I will probably never share with anyone that I do not give birth to. LOL.  

These three things ::well two:: are what my Christmas is made of.  I feel like without these my season would not be the same.  I cannot wait to have littles on day so that they can help me carry on this silly thing I call tradition.  :) 


  1. I talk about Christmas movies as well! Love this time of year. Don't feel bad about your Hallmark Christmas Movie fix. It's hard for me to resist Lifetime movies year round. I'm such a sucker for a good tear jerker. Nothing like ugly crying over fake people in a fake situations, while ManFriend stares at me like an alien is crawling out of my ear. Sigh, the holidays, gotta love it.

    Keep it Sassy & Classy,

    1. haha! this is perfect. i'm pretty sure that is how my hubby feels about my obsession with Christmas movies as well. I'm glad i'm not alone :)
