No matter what holiday you celebrate in December, you cannot ignore the overwhelming presence and cheer of the people celebrating Christmas. This is never more present than the days leading up to the holiday itself.
Growing up, my sister and I spent many a night in December watching our favorite holiday films. They were easy enough to find. We would go through the TV Guide, mark the days on the calendar when our favorite movies were playing and mark it down in the square: Dec 17, 7pm Santa Clause is Comin' to Town. Now, ABC Family has made it even easier with their '25 Days of Christmas'. This has been running for several years now, but if your family is not familiar with it, you can visit www.abcfamily.com/25days to look at the line-up and see what it is all about.
In case your family doesn't have cable, or you miss your favorite movie, we have plenty of copies of your favorites here at the library. Stop by and check out a few for your family, and while you are in, take out a book on your favorite December holiday as well. Grab a bowl of popcorn and all the blankets you can find... I guarantee your family will have a great time!
