Have I mentioned that I love everything about Christmas? Because I do. Every bit of it.
Especially Christmas movies. Adair and I thought that we’d share our favorites with you. Here they are in no particular order:

The Nightmare Before Christmas
‘Twas a long time ago, longer now than it seems in a place perhaps you’ve seen in your dreams. For the story you’re about to be told began with the holiday worlds of auld. Now you’ve probably wondered where holidays come from. If you haven’t I’d say it’s time you begun.” – Santa

“Not too hot. Extra Chocolate. Shaken, not stirred. – Little Elf Judy.
Daniel: Aren’t you a bit young to be in love?
Daniel: Oh, well, okay… right. Well, I mean, I’m a little relieved.
Daniel: Well, because I thought it would be something worse.
Sam: [incredulous] Worse than the total agony of being in love?
Daniel: Oh. No, you’re right. Yeah, total agony.

“I will honour Christmas in my heart, and try to keep it all the year. I will live in the Past, the Present, and the Future. The Spirits of all Three shall strive within me.
