Christmas is Coming!!!

"Christmas is Coming...
Christmas is Near...
I've been Counting Down the Days All Year...
Christmas is almost Here!!!"
( Chorus from Francesca Battistelli song - "Christmas Is" )

Christmas is certainly almost here... and, I know we have all been extra busy getting everything prepared for that special day... with everyone's schedules filled with activities, such as: decorating, finding gifts, wrapping, concerts, parties, recitals, baking goodies, attending church services, visiting family & friends, giving back to others, and squeezing in time to watch new Christmas movies and many of our beloved favorites, too!

In the midst of all this busyness... I wanted to be sure to note some of the Special Christmas Programming coming up on this Week of Christmas!!!

Let's begin with Hallmark...

Here's a YouTube clip I wanted to share of Francesca Battistelli song - "Christmas Is":
(Turn Up Your Speakers and Enjoy!!! Merry Christmas!!!)

"For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son,
that whosoever believeth in him should not perish , but have everlasting life."
-John 3:16 (KJV)


  1. Net, once again thanks do much for all that you do for us all through the year. Hope you have wonderful Christmas and a healthy and happy Nee Year.

  2. Thank you, Net! Wow, it all happened so fast. Thanks for the fun this season. Hope next season is just as fun with the movies!


  3. I'm an avid reader of your website and I really enjoy the comments sections. I agree with many of the other people who have thought that this season's Christmas movies have been remarkably average. I don't think I've seen a single one that I would consider adding to my "must-watch" list next year similar to A Christmas Card, The Most Wonderful Time of the Year, November Christmas, etc. I think 2013 was the last year for really great movies from Hallmark. I think the problem is now that Hallmark is making so many movies, they have to make them quickly and can't really spend enough time or money on any individual movie to make it great. There were certainly some good ones this season but unfortunately, no instant classics.
