Musings From A Musical Mind

This year between the weeks of Thanksgiving and Christmas – I want to select a song or a movie each day to post on my blog to bring the season in style.

Many people have various ideas about what is the best music and the best movie memories at this wonderful time of the year – and I’m no exception.  I definitely have my favorites.  Most of them are for personal reasons – either I grew up watching or listening to them – or they touched me in a place that’s very special.

So starting tomorrow – I’m going to feature a song or a movie (or both) each day to help you celebrate as well.  Fell free to add your favorites in the comment section – it’s fun to share ideas with you – and have you list your favorites too :)

Besides the food of this holiday season – the music and movies provide a vehicle for me to continue celebrating all month-long.  Most of these holiday films have wonderful soundtracks too – which is one reason they have become classics to me and why I love watching them over and over.  In fact – we have quite a collection of them in our 30 year marriage – and there are some things we simply have to watch during the holiday season – or it just isn’t the same to us.  Even better – having a roaring fire while watching and munching on holiday treats :)

So I hope you will join me in helping to create a list of incredible “must watch” movies and “must listen to” music – for those who need a little help to jump-start this season.

Have a wonderful Thanksgiving week – and God Bless!

Comments on: "Plans For A Merry Music Film Festival" (3)

  1. I’m not talking about the secular Christmas movies. I’m talking about all the movies the stations are putting on for Christmas that have nothing whatsoever to do with Christmas like a Harry Potter Marathon. Most of the movies they are advertising don’t have anything at all to do with Christmas, Jesus, Santa, heartwarming stories centered around Christmastime…

  2. Should be such fun. Thanks Cindy. I have been disappointed in the movies the tv channels pick to represent Christmas. I know they don’t really celebrate the Birth of Christ, but most of the movies they pick have nothing whatever to do with Christmas–even Santa. Sad really.

    • Well to be honest – most of our films about Christmas and the holiday season are not primarily centered around the birth of Christ – but as Christians WE KNOW the real reason for the season of JOY and celebrate it along with everything else that is celebrated – gift giving, family, snow, Christmas trees, and getting together with friends and beautiful stories of love, restoration, forgiveness and a changed life.
