The wisdom of Christmas movies
Happy Monday, everyone. Today, I want to share with you the wisdom of Christmas movies.
Yesterday, we learned that many of us are struggling with health challenges.
So, you may be joining me (and Mr. B) in watching holiday movies on several different stations.
Besides the obvious love stories, Christmas movies often possess wisdom and encouragement within the different tales.
For years, I have noted some of the best lines which make me smile and Mr. B tear up...don’t tell him I shared that part with you!
He has watched more of these movies this past week than ever before.
THE WISDOM OF CHRISTMAS MOVIES
We all know watching Christmas movies is best with a warm beverage and comfy blanket.
A couple of years ago, we shared Hot Chocolate Recipes here. Today, let’s look at the first one in this post HOT CHOCOLATE RECIPE #1.
I love to re-visit some of my personal favorites.
BACK TO WISDOM IN CHRISTMAS MOVIES….
Whether it is chocolate or tea, let’s look at my favorite wisdom in Christmas Movies:
Christmas is like a baton passed down from one generation to the other.
Snowflakes are like kisses from heaven.
An angel in your house they say will guide your family along the way.
A cup of hot tea makes everything better.
You don’t have to see the whole staircase to take the first step.
It’s about the joy…not about being judged.
The smallest stone makes a ripple in the water.
Believe in the power of a wish.
Be adventurous and do something you haven’t done this Christmas.
The best gifts don’t have bows.
Just because you are an adult doesn’t mean you have to abandon being a kid.
Where there’s a wish, there is a way.
God gives the strongest soldiers the toughest battles.
Stop and smell the pine trees.
Remembrance like a candle burns brightest at Christmas
Life Is like a chocolate bomb….a little hot water makes it really special!
Did you recognize any of these lines? I hope they encouraged you as we begin Thanksgiving week In the states.
Would you like to share any of your favorite lines from holiday movies?
I do not think there is anything “sappy” about focusing on joy and goodness.
Thank you for all of the kind words yesterday…healing continues, one day at a time.

I think people like Christmas movies not only to make them feel good, but because we know there is going to be a happy ending. In these recent years when we have been faced with so much turmoil, COVID sickness and death, we want….I dare say, need…uplifting thoughts to get us through our troublesome lives. Mental stress can take its toll on our physical bodies as our immunity is lowered. I certainly hope that as you and Mr. B heal together, you continue to enjoy your time together.
I agree….I just about cannot watch anything with sad endings anymore. Thanks Celia.
I enjoy the Christmas movies. Infact, some of the older ones are my favorite. Blessings
I have a favorite line, though I wouldn’t call it wisdom! “Why do, when you can overdo.”. Thought of that when I was starting Thanksgiving prep this morning.
LOL! Thanks for sharing, Karen
Please remember all of the people who are going through the holidays alone, who have recently lost a loved one, who are unable to celebrate or partake of joy in the “traditional” way.
Thank you for the reminder, Anita. All I know to do is to bring joy and encouragement to anyone who visits here and I promise to pray for those who are struggling. I know the holidays are difficult for many…hope and joy still exists for all of us when we are ready.
I just love “Where there is a wish, there is a way.” Thank you for sharing all if tgese delightful bits of wisdom with us. I hope you and Mr B start feeling stronger and much better very soon. The anti viral my doctor suggested when I got Covid in May helped me immensely! Like magic! Despite the icky taste on my tongue during the 5 days I took it, I felt so much better and my fever subsided too. No bad side effects except icky taste that left after I stopped taking it.
Please do feel better really soon! Prayers!
Mr. B was able to receive the anti-viral…which was very helpful…but he complained about the metallic tastes in his mouth every day.
I was getting caught up with the weekend posts and was so sorry to learn that you and Mr. B are recovering from COVID! You have certainly had your share of challenges (and now disappointment) over the past several months, Pam, and it can’t be easy dealing with all of them. However, your spirit of joy and gratitude is amazing. I so admire you! Take your ‘season of rest’ and get well soon. Everything else can wait!! I’ll be keeping you and other here in my prayers.
Glad you are recovering and were able to get Paxil . I am soo careful to avoid crowds as I have very little immune system and we both still wear masks and will continue .. covid is scary for-immune compromised .. .
Love Christmas magic , movies and wisdom … reminds me of the old Love Boat series which always had happy ending ..they are good for our soul and remind us that Christmas is about caring and giving too ..
Rest and relax .. every thing can wait ..even this blog ❤️🎄🧑🏻🎄🎅🏼🙏🏼🙏🏼
My favorite Christmas movies are all older movies: White Christmas, the original Christmas in Connecticut & The Bishop’s Wife. I started watching Hallmark Christmas movies during the summer of the pandemic. That was such a down year that I needed the “happily ever after” they provided.
Hoping you will gradually get better! And your husband. And thank you for the recommendation for Vivaia.
I wore my first pair out to a friend’s house for dinner last night and she really liked them.
And comfortable out of the box .
Take care of yourself and your husband. I am ultra cautious as my mother is 91—
Paxlovid does really help and getting the newest bivalent vaccine in 3 months will help for the future.
