I think basketball players do the same thing, and football players too. They might be dancing to a different tune, that's all, because they're on their feet and not on skates, so they don't move as fast.
And for something relatively different.Nothing gets you in the mood for the holidays like Christmas movies, especially ones with singing in them. One of my favorite parts about Christmas is watching the movies. While it seems more engaging and fun to watch them on television where there are Christmas commercial breaks to get you even more psyched up for the holidays, the Christmas movies they play on television are either a) bad, or b) good, but all the good ones are on different channels at the exact same time. So, I have compiled my own Christmas movie collection (with a little help from my dad's movie collection) to enjoy whenever I want.
- Home Alone
- Holiday Inn
- The Family Stone
- The Holiday
- While You Were Sleeping
- It's a Wonderful Life
- Meet Me In St. Louis
- Love Actually
- How the Grinch Stole Christmas
- Ratatouille (I know that one's not a real "Christmas" movie, but I love it so it's in here too.)
These movies all remind me of some of the best parts about Christmas--family, love, lights, music, and presents. It's not actually the opening and receiving presents that I enjoy, but the wrapping of them. I am a rather excellent and--when the situation calls for it--creative gift wrapper, so that's one of my favorite parts.
It's been snowing a bit lately too, so that makes it seem closer and closer to Christmas!
I'm dreaming of a white Christmas...
I know I digressed a little from sports to Christmas movies, but what are your favorite things about Christmas? Or your favorite Christmas movies (especially if they're not on this list!)?
