Pre-Holiday Wishlist

If any of you are wondering what to get me this year for Christmas, ponder no more!  I’ve come up with a brilliant idea that will relinquish my craving for some holiday spirit.

Here’s the deal:  There is NO Christmas here!  No festive lights, no trees, no carolers caroling, no drummers drumming… and especially NO Christmas movies on TV. (Plus, I don’t even own a TV, so that doesn’t help me much).

In order to be somewhat connected with my Christmas roots, I own 2 Christmas movies:

  • Elf (with Will Farrell)
  • How the Grinch Stole Christmas (with Jim Carey)

Sadly to say, I’ve already watched them both.  Soooooo, (drumroll) my brilliant idea is this…… if you are looking to buy your favorite Shine! ambassador a little something something for Christmas, look no more.  I am a Christmas movie FANATIC, and there are many good ones to choose from (see last years poll of some fav’s here).  Maybe Santa’s little helpers will surprise me with some holiday spirit this year 🙂

The Boy in the Striped Pajamas

 

Striped PajamasThe Boy in the Striped Pajamas

….If you haven’t seen this movie, then you must. 

A story of WWII from the eyes of an 8 year old boy.  A German 8 year old boy.  A son of a high ranked Nazi officer, German 8 year old boy, who befriends an 8 year old Jewish boy on the other side of the fence.

If you don’t think that the way we raise our children, teach our children, or pour into our children makes a difference then think again!  Everything we say and do influences them.  Whether we realize it or not, they are watching us.  Our choices affect them directly or indirectly, and sometimes the consequences are more than we could ever imagine.

Powerful, yet tragic message!

The holidays are now in full swing (everywhere but here), and I have been craving some of my favorite Christmas movies.
