25 Days of Christmas #1: Favorite Christmas Movie

december-challenge

This is a hard challenge to answer, because I love so many different Christmas movies. Basically, if you find it on Lifetime or ABC Family, it’s something I will enjoy. I’m pretty much a sap when it comes to these types of movies.

This past weekend, I caught two adorable new movies on Lifetime.

A Gift Wrapped Christmas

A Gift Wrapped Christmas

This movies is about a personal shopper who makes it her mission to help a widowed father find happiness for Christmas. If the premise wasn’t enough to make this an enjoyable film, the lead actress was absolutely adorable. Something about her character’s personality really made me enjoy the movie so much, that I even watched it the next night.

The Christmas Gift

The Christmas Gift

This one is based loosely off of a true story. A young girl receives a Christmas gift from a thoughtful little boy who was playing Secret Santa for those less fortunate in the Philippines. As an adult, she seeks him out on Facebook and tries to friend him. A few years later, she tries again and he accepts the request in order to discover who and why she’s trying to connect with him. It turns out he doesn’t even remember sending out this care packages, but after his mother confirms he did, the two become close friends. Eventually, they fall in love and get married.

In the movie version, the young girl receives a notebook with a special note inscribed that inspired her to write. Years later, as she’s pursuing a career in journalism, she seeks out the young boy who was once her Secret Santa. Much like the true story, the two fall in love.

See… I’m a sap. But hey, it’s Christmas and it’s the one time a year where it’s okay to be one. Just don’t let anyone know, okay?

About Kristine

As an aspiring author, avid bookworm, fitness fanatic and dedicated mother, there just aren't enough hours in the day. I write or post about things I'm passionate about and spend my time trying to make the most of every day. Life may be a tough journey, but I have my ruby red slippers and am content on skipping along this yellow brick road until the end of the line.

  1. I’m a total sap too! I’ll watch whatever cheesy, terrible Christmas themed romantic comedies on Netflix. LOL. Also, I’ve been known to watch the Curious George Christmas Special for some reason (it’s CUTE!) hahahaha
