My Top Three Holiday Movies Based on Books


Season's Readings
I  was attracted to this wreath I saw hanging in the window at at my local Crate N' Barrel.  I still don't have mine up! We've moved and MLH has to get our Christmas stuff out of storage. Right now my holiday song is "Tomorrow" from Annie! If he doesn't get his reindeer in gear tomorrow, MLH is going to wake up and find this $100 wreath hanging on the door instead of the free wreath sitting in our storage unit.

Ho Ho Ho   Merry Christmas


To put you in an equally holiday mood , I'm linking to a post I wrote last Christmas Eve
 on three of my favorite holiday movies based on books

I know there are lots of great ones out there. I'd love to hear some of your favorites.

  1. I love that wreath - seems to me a wreath for the door and a wreath for the back door is the way to go!

  3. I love it too. I like different more than traditional.

    1. I like both; I'm fairly eclectic and a blend of traditional with a splash of modern really appeals to me.

  4. I thoroughly enjoy wreaths, and the more unusual the better.

    I can't think of a favorite holiday movie from the past, but recently watched a movie from just a few years ago, called The Holiday, in which two women trade houses during the holiday season (Kate Winslet and Cameron Diaz). I watched it (again) a couple of weekends ago.

  5. Enjoyed your post on holiday movies, and was surprised to find this: I was the narrator back in 7th grade in Niagara Falls. A fellow Canuck before migration south? ;)

    1. Yes Arti I am a proud Canuck! Very proud to have been raised in Niagara Falls before we moved to Los Angles when I was 15. Born in England, father took us to Libya and Turkey for the first few years, ended up in Toronto for first and second grade before we moved to Niagara Falls. We lived there until we moved to Puerto Rico when I was 15.

  6. I'm not a fan of the barren wreath. It looks more suitable for lent than for Christmas, but they may be the child in me who still prefers colored lights and lots of presents. My husband's favorite book that was made into a movie is The Polar Express.

    1. Polar Express! Yes! I agree the wreath is a little barren looking but for me there's something about its starkness that strikes a chord. I'm not buying it though!

  7. That wreath looks like something out of a Christmas story (I'm thinking something Tim Burton-esque).

  8. Those wreaths made from grapevines are beautiful and different.
    I enjoyed the book, Life of Pi. Cheri and I thought the movie, in extreme digital and 3-D, inspires creativity and imagination.

    1. I think even James Cameron, who did AVATAR, believes its the best 3D attempt ever. HUGO in 3D is the best I've seen so far; I haven't been able to see Life of Pi yet!

  9. I love the American Christmas wreath tradition, you don't see as many here. I hope you've solved your decorating problem soon.

  10. This reminds me ... I want to pick up one of those fresh evergreen wreaths for the outside of my house. :)

  11. That's pretty -- I like that it's both natural and shiny!
