I just want others to understand that it is within their power to take a dream from inside their hearts and begin making it their life’s work. ~ John Mitchell
Thanksgiving isn’t even here yet, and the Hallmark Channel has already begun broadcasting Christmas movies. Last Sunday I decided that after church and after my daily walk that I was going to take the afternoon of the Sabbath seriously – no writing, no reading, no cleaning of the house. I was going to sit and enjoy a sappy Christmas movie that had attracted my attention as I channel surfed.
As I sat, wrapped in a blanket with popcorn and hot chocolate in hand, I began to think how this movie was no different than any of the other Christmas movies I have seen in my lifetime. But I still never get tired of watching sappy holiday films. The issues in the plots of holiday movies are nearly always the same – about a broken family, unrequited love, a romance gone wrong or the struggles of a lonely heart club member. The ending of the story is always fulfilling – tied up with an uplifting message. Sweet Christmas movies remind me to believe in the goodness of humanity and to always look for it inside people.
The Christmas Card is one holiday movie I have not yet seen, and it is upcoming on the “Heart of TV” – The Hallmark Channel. Here is the link to the programming schedule for Christmas movies you can watch right from the comfort of your living room. http://bit.ly/1atIndj.
You must be thinking I am off my rocker with all this talk of Christmas already. Well, here in the northwest corner of Colorado, we have already had about 50 inches of snow this season. The weather broadcasters are saying it is “the earliest winter ever.” To me, as I look my window on this first week of November, it may as well be Christmas. The earth is wrapped in a blanket of sparkly white already.

Well done, Sue, for taking time out on a Sunday to relax and enjoy some good Christmas movies! I too love those movies and the magical atmosphere they create. It does seem very early, though, to be broadcasting Christmas movies, but the early snow, lights going up around town and merchandise in the stores are a reminder that Christmas is not too far away. Happy viewing!
