First of all, did you know that the previous post was my 1000th post? Hmm... Maybe I talk too much? LOL!
Anyway... On to the reviews I promised!
"All I Want For Christmas"... Which is a movie I've had for many years about a little girl named "Hallie" who asks Father Christmas to get her parents to get back together, which prompts her older brother "Ethan" to come up with a plan to try and make her Christmas wish come true. It's a really good movie... Or, I think it is.
"An All Dogs Christmas Carol"... This one's an animated movie about some dogs who use a "miracle dog tag" to re inact the story of A Christmas Carol in order to persuade a nasty dog not to help an even nastier dog to ruin Christmas. It's a cute movie based on the characters from "All Dogs Go To Heaven."
"How The Grinch Stole Christmas" (the animated version)... Basically, the poem by Dr Seuss with animation. Need I say more? ;)
"A Christmas Carol" by Charles Dickens... I don't think I need to tell you about this one. If I do then, seriously, where have you been? This one's a classic, and has been done in so many different versions I've lost track! The version I have though is the original version by Charles Dickens himself.
"Letters From Father Christmas" by J R R Tolkien... Yes, I did say "J R R Tolkien" - honestly! This is a book containing some letters that J R R Tolkien's children recieved from "Father Christmas" after they asked what Father Christmas did other than deliver presents. The letters contain amusing stories about what happens at the North Pole and what the North Polar Bear gets up to. It's definately good for a chuckle! :)
"A Candle In The Forest" by Temple Bailey... This one is a new find. I spotted it on a site that does braille books and thought I'd grab myself a copy to see if it was as good as it sounded. It was! It's a story about a poor family and a rich family who live next door to each other and how the poor family - despite having few possessions and only just enough money to live on - are actually richer because they have something money can't buy... Love! The story is set at Christmas, and shows the boy from the wealthy family learning how much better off the family next door is because they have each other, they have love, and they have the ability to be greatful for the little things. It shows us how a pile of presents can't compare to having your family near you and showing you that they care about you... A lesson many people in this world need to be taught!
