This is my third year doing the Advent Tour! Yay me! Somehow I missed it last year. In 2011, I introduced everyone to my daughter’s Christmas present (a very young looking Mr. Blue!) and in 2010, I showed off a few of my favorite Christmas ornaments.
This year, I’m going to share a family Christmas tradition.
Every year, as soon as I can talk everyone in my family into; which is earlier and earlier every year (this year it was the day after Thanksgiving!) we watch my favorite Christmas movie: The Polar Express. And have peppermint milkshakes! So far this year, we’ve only done it 3 times, but not for lack of trying on my part.
Speaking of trying…I need to get some peppermint ice cream.
If you’ve never seen this movie, you are really missing out. At first, I found it a bit creepy, but the story, the music…it all wove itself into my heart and I adore it. Here’s a clip of one of my favorite songs from the movie:
Do any of your holiday traditions contain favorite movies and treats? I’d love to hear about it!
Follow the Advent Calendar here. And many thanks to Kelly and Marg for hosting this fun event every year!
And Merry Christmas!
