Day One – Dahlia’s Holiday Party


From today until December 24th, I’ll be featuring various authors (and others) on my blog who will share holiday stories, bits of their books, and all sorts of things.  Hope everyone comes each day to hang out.  At the bottom of each daily post will be the link to the giveaway on rafflecopter, so be sure to check it out.

I have one holiday tradition that I’ve kept for probably the last ten years or more. I watch one Christmas movie on Dec 24th in the evening while eating snacks and playing Rummy with my husband. We try to watch a new one (since my hubby doesn’t care to rewatch movies.) Not sure what we’re going to watch this year, I might pick an old favourite–A Christmas Carol.

I’ve seen almost every adaptation of it. My favourites are the George C. Scott and the Patrick Stewart ones.  The first is a classic and the second–I’ve always felt Patrick Stweart brought this amazing realness to Scrooge. The scene where he laughs for the first time is a bit of brilliant acting.

On the other hand, I’m not really a fond of the cartoon versions or the muppet one. *shrugs* It doesn’t do anything for me.  I will say, the  more recent one with Jim Carrey was spectacular.

Do you have a favourite holiday movie?
