planned spontaneity is back for december–as promised! we love the holiday season and celebrate from thanksgiving all the way into the new year. the first “get into the holiday spirit” activity that we like to do is watch our favorite christmas movies (while munching on popcorn and sipping some white wine, obviously). as you know, i tend to notice the small details in the movies, so here is an abbreviated list of my favorite christmas trees from the silver screen.
||| national lampoon’s christmas vacation | the classic…to be viewed at least 3 times each december |||
||| how the grinch stole christmas | and then…”i will stuff up the tree!” |||
||| a charlie brown christmas | it’s too early, i never eat december snowflakes. i always wait until january |||
||| home alone II: lost in new york | who can resist the nyc tree scene? |||
||| elf | sounds like the perfect day…”first we’ll make snow angels for a two hours, then we’ll go ice skating, then we’ll eat a whole roll of tollhouse cookiedough as fast as we can, and then we’ll snuggle.” |||
||| a summer place | fake plastic trees |||
