I've Been Faking It the Whole Time

I have a confession. You may find this to be a little shocking considering my love of all things Christmas. The lights, the songs, the food, the company. The whole enchilada, if you will.

So here it is. Deep breath.........

I no longer have to pretend like I know what White Christmas is about, nodding my head in apparent agreement when someone calls it a classic so people won't doubt my declaration that Christmas is my favorite holiday. Behaving as though, I too ,watch it faithfully every year.

I finally watched it for the very first time last night. I though of Karen the whole time, and must agree that it is a great holiday movie. It was quite enjoyable and I will be adding it to the long list of must-see movies next year. OK, maybe I'm not going that far, but at least I don't have to maintain the fake aura of authenticity when the subject comes up.

I have this recorded on my DVR, because while I have seen some of it, I've never seen the whole thing. Even my six year old has. The other day, I caught him watching it instead of cartoons. How funny is that?

Must see whole thing!

I love this movie and so glad you have joined the ranks of having watched it *wink*. Now you need to rent "Holiday Inn" and watch that one too! :) I finally just ordered it for myself this week and can't wait to have another one to watch.

"Christmas in Connecticut" is another great one that I pull out every year...sorry to maybe add more to your list of ones to watch. But they are worth it if you love older movies! :)
