Imagine my disappointment when I realized a week ago that I don’t have ANY Christmas movies!? They are all at home, with the family, because they are owned by the family and should remain at the family home because Christmas is a family-spent holiday! Well, this year, I won’t be home for the holiday because I’ve committed myself to work for Disney during the holiday rush… therefore NO Christmas movies to watch whilest I knit and wrap gifts! BLAST!!
I immediately started filling a shopping cart on Amazon when this epiphany struck! I informed mommy-dearest of this dilemma one evening, and being the sweetheart that she is, she hijacked my amazon account and ordered my Christmas Movie Wishlist! AAwwwwwwww!!!!! I think everyone is a little saddened that I won’t be home for the holiday, and they are worried that I’ll be alone, so by mentioning that Christmas movies are high on my Christmas Time priority list, she procured my films of choice and had them shipped! Again… AAAWWWWW!!!
I’m totally ok with missing this Christmas with the fam for the amazing internship opportunity, plus Christmas time at Disneyland starts in November, so I’ve been exposed to a lot of Christmasy-ness. I’ll survive this holiday season without a trip home. I don’t plan on making it a habit, though. HECK NO!

Nothing beats my dad’s Christmas lights on the house, the amazing tree, ADORABLE decorations around the house, my sisters fighting over which stocking holder REALLY belongs to them, and my mom’s Gingerbread House decorating nights. NOTHING! And don’t get me started on our Fondue dinner and making Christmas cookies and candies with my mom and sisters!
No, I don’t plan on missing many Holiday Seasons at home in the future, but now and then won’t kill me. I’m sure we could ALL agree… there’s no place like home for the Holidays. But I plan on doing it right on my own this year, and having A TON of Christmas movies is a good way to start!!!
I think I’ll enjoy Elf tonight while I knit!!!!
