Christmastide

I am finished my Christmas shopping. To which I have to say....




It's definitely a great thing to be able to do: get the shopping with over before December. OK, I finished on December 3, not Nov. 30 but it was quite close indeed! I understand some people need a Christmas bonus, or have to go week, pay by pa. Anyway, this is my winter / Christmas post....



For starters, I'm going to list off the movies I watch every Christmas....



Christmas Vacation
Home Alone
The Grinch
Die Hard (Takes place on Christmas Eve)
Love Actually
The Holiday
Muppet Family Christmas (The one with the Sesame St gang, and the Fraggles)
Narnia (the first film)
Christmas Carol (1951 black and white)
Miracle on 34th St
It's a Wonderful Life

Now, for the playlist for music....


Narnia soundtrack
"Harry in Winter" - Goblet of Fire soundtrack
"Gordric's Hollow Graveyard" - Deathly Hallows: Part 1 soundtrack
