Holiday Treats

We're snowbound this weekend, we don't have as much snow as they got in "The Baby Sitters Club Super Special #7: Snowbound" by Ann M. Martin but it's the perfect weekend to bundle up in blankets and read your favorite holiday store or hunker down to a marathon of your favorite holiday films. I asked the BWOBNY crew to share their favorite holiday tales.

Naomi and everyone in the BWOBNY crew adores "The Muppet's Christmas Carol," a heartwarming and hilarious take on the Dickens' classic

Jess P. also loves the original animated version of  "How The Grinch Whole Stole Christmas," based on the Dr. Seuss' book.  

Rebecca T. said, "it doesn't feel like Christmas until I've watched 'White Christmas' and Jess B. agreed it's also a favorite of hers. 

 Jess B. also gets a kick out of "Donald's Snow Fight," and makes a double feature of it with "Mickey's Christmas Carol."

Jess P. and I always snickered and laughed throughout one of my favorite Christmas specials, "A Very Brady Christmas," the 80's era reunion of the infamous Bunch.  And not a Christmas goes by that I don't commemorate the occasion by reading "Sweet Valley High, Super Edition: Special Christmas" by Francine Pascal and "Olive, the Other Reindeer," based on the picture book J. Otto Seibold. 

Now, we want to hear from you!!! What are your favorite holiday stories? Please share with us.

The Life and Adventures of Santa Claus. They hardly ever play it and to get it on DVD you have to buy it with Nestor the Christmas Donkey. It'll be on this weekend and I'm DVRing it!

I also have to agree with Mickey's Christmas Carol and the Muppet Christmas Carol. And I also love Scrooge, with Albert Finney in the lead role.
