In today’s Vlogidays video, I’m discussing what I can’t live without during the holidays.
Two television episodes I look forward to are In Excelsis Deo (West Wing Season 1, Episode 10) and Death Takes a Holiday (M*A*S*H, Season 5…I was wrong, it isn’t on Netflix currently, this is a YouTube link). I think it’s very easy to watch both of these episodes even if you haven’t watched any others in either series, the backstory isn’t necessary to appreciate the storyline.
Rocky Mountain Christmas (John Denver) and Oak Ridge Boys Christmas are two albums that say Christmas to me. They bring back memories of listening to them on the record player in our living room while I read.
The snack I look forward to every December came from my step-grandma, Rose’s People (Party) Mix. After she died & we started sorting her items, this recipe was the first one we hunted for!
My favorite Christmas movie is the original Miracle on 34th Street. I watch it every Christmas Eve after everyone has gone to bed and just soak in the holiday season. But the movie Jim & I have watched for the last 21 years (that long!) is It’s a Wonderful Life.
