I Love the Holidays! Mostly for the time off. I get to sleep late, I can have more than one cup of coffee and I don’t have to drive anywhere. Sometimes I travel, lately I haven’t been going anywhere. I love the holiday programming, too. I really enjoy the newer stuff. I like animated movies, but I’m just not into Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer anymore (no offense, to ANYONE!). I watch a lot of Hallmark during the holidays. This year Hallmark has 12 new movies they’ll be showing beginning in November and right through Christmas.
