Holidays : A list of Dope Activities For the Holidays !

Friday, December 9, 2016


We Just  love the holidays.
They are a special reminder of the two greatest joys in life: our relationship with God and our relationships with others.
When it comes to making the most of the holidays, it’s important to take the time to connect with the people God has placed in our lives. Sometimes that means getting together and building our relationships with one another.  Other times, it means reaching out with the love of God to the world around us.
As you take the time to love and be loved this holiday season, here are a list of my favorite holiday activities that will add cheer, joy, and charity to your life and the lives of those around you!  So choose a date, send an invite, and make something happen!

Holidays : Classic Movie List for the Holidays , Whats is your Favorite ?



Most of us spend a good deal of time watching television or Netflix (Our Favorite) over the holiday season. If you are looking for your Holiday fix here is a  great list to use.


Here is our  pick for quality viewing time for the visitors in your home this week and next. There are also different movies we watch for different reasons.
1-     It's a Wonderful Life - On the Top of any list. We watch it every year, and it just keeps getting better.
2-      Miracle on  34th Street - The original is a heartwarming story. You cannot help but smile and think of the kinder days in your childhood.
3-      Deck the Halls-  It tells the story of just how competitive we have become with Christmas decorations
4-      The Santa Clause We all know what it’s like to have to agree to something and we feel unworthy.
5-      The Christmas Shoes It will make you pay attention to the people in front and around you. You may be able to make someone’s wish come true
6-      This Christmas It will remind you that being with family  is  truly the best gift of year.
7-      The Preacher’s Wife-  It tells the story of healing and love’s enduring heart.
8-      The Nativity. It reminds you  of what Christmas is Truly about
9-      The Polar Express. It may be animated but it tells a story of Hope.
10-    A Christmas Story. Surely we all have seen it but you need to watch it again just for the laugh out loud quality of the child and the frozen flag pole.
11-    Home Alone - The first one, not the sequels! A really good family film for the holidays, except there's no family! Funny gags, hilarious antics and truly feel-good moments as well. (one of our favorites)
12-     A Charlie Brown Christmas  - We know it's a made-for-TV movie, but to ignore it would be stupid. Generations of kids have grown up on it.
13-    Elf  - Will Ferrell drives this great-for-the-entire-family Christmas comedy. Of course the uncredited appearance of Peter Billingsley is a special holiday treat.
14 -   Bad Santa  - Come on, admit it! You know it made you laugh. There's just something funny about a drunken Santa.
Just Added - Best Man Holiday , just love that movie 
Also check out netflix , the hallmark channel and up channel , they have never let us down :) 

What is your favorite holiday movie?


Happy Viewing!
