758 We watch the usual fare at Christmas time. Miracle on 34th Street after dinner on Thanksgiving. Ben Hur at Easter, but it's usually the 1920s silent version. The Quiet Man on St. Patrick's Day. We have several versions of A Christmas Carol; from Mickey Mouse to Allistair Simms and Jim Carrey. Darby O'Gill and the Little People gets a viewing around St. Paddy's day, too. "Independence Day" on the Fourth of July. Will Smith and Jeff Goldblum. MMMMM. And, 1776 (the musical). DH is a film devotee. He watches; I read!

758 There's also Cricket on the Hearth and The Chimes for Dickens Holiday stories. There's a reason we call the way we celebrate Christmas Dickensian! :)

Meghan, I agree that the concept of using multiple first person narrators was pretty creative. I am getting pretty excited to know what's going to happen next and what the big Secret is! I'll add The Moonstone to my tbr list, thanks for the recommendation!

758 I'm reading The Woman in White and finding it intriguing and enjoyable, if a little on the long side.

758 I love all the holiday movies and usually them out on Thanksgiving when I watch Miracle on 34th Street (Natalie Wood version)first and go from there. DH and I went to see the new Christmas Carol on Saturday and it was excellent; true to Dickens and really great in IMAX 3-D. I don't recommend it for anyone under 8-it got kinda scary in spots. It is a ghost story, after all. I'll be adding it to my collection as soon as it comes out on DVD.

I guess I wonder if the mom and dad were raised that way and that this becomes a generational thing, passed down over and over again.

758 Just started "Princess Academy" by Shannon Hale. Picked it up on a trip to the book store with my 2 year old granddaughter and noticed it was a Newberry Honor Book. I enjoy YA fiction and love to be able to read it and recommend it to younger girls. It caught my interest right away. The protagonist is intriguing.

758 I saw this movie on Saturday and give it 3.5 out of 5. Alexis is very good, but the saving of the film are the performances by Michael Keaton and Carol Burnett. I laughed out loud several times. This story is apparently based on the writer's real experience with trying to find a job Post Grad, which makes it better in my book. Enjoy!
