I'm addicted to Christmas movies.
Every day I work hard to meet my word count goal so I can plop myself on the couch that night and watch whatever movie is showing on the Hallmark or Lifetime Channels. One evening one December ago, my husband had an a-ha moment about my love of Christmas movies. The conversation went something like this:
Him during a commercial: "I know why you love these movies so much."
Me: "They're about Christmas."
Him: "They're like the books you write."
He was oh-so-right. Check out the Hallmark Channel's trailer from their YouTube Channel for one of my favorites called The Christmas Card:
The narration could be the back cover blurb for a sweet romance! This holiday movie and so many others that I love to watch over and over again are like the sweet romances on my keeper shelf, in my TBR pile and downloaded to my Kindle, ones like the Sweet Romance Reads authors here at this blog write. Heartwarming, emotional stories full of community, family, home and, of course, love. Stories that allow us to escape for a couple hours and make our hearts sigh when we reach the happy ending.
If you're like me and can't wait to see the new movies out each holiday season, try a sweet romance or two if you haven't already. Trust me, it's a good way to tie yourself over from January until the day after Thanksgiving when the Christmas movie watching binge begins! (At least mine.) Why do you think I save up some of the Christmas romance novels in my TRB stack and don't read them until after New Year's?
Do you have a favorite Christmas movie you love to watch?
