My Top Five Holiday Movies

I want to wish all of you a very Happy Holidays! I love this time of year—the baking, the presents, the music and fun. One of the things I do every Christmas season is watch the seasonal movies and shows. We all have our favorites, but these are 5 that I watch every year.

1. National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation. This is the movie that kicks off the holiday season for me. I still laugh, no matter how many times I’ve seen it.

2. Scrooge. I watch at last three versions every year. My favorite is the Albert Finney one from 1970. I also love the Muppet’s Christmas Carol and the Alastair Sim version from 1951. (I also try and fit Billy Murray’s Scrooged in there too.)

3. How the Grinch Stole Christmas (1966 animated version). I’ve been watching it my entire life and still love it.

4. A Charlie Brown Christmas. This 1965 animated story still makes me smile and brings me hope.

5. Arthur Christmas. This movie is only a few years old, but I love it because it counters the cynicism that has run rampant in a lot of newer holiday movies.

Here are five more, because five just isn’t enough: Frosty the Snowman, Little Woman, Love Actually, It’s a Wonderful Life, and The Man Who Invented Christmas (2017).

And if you’re looking for a new book, you might want to check out Endless Chase, the final book in the Dalakis Passion vampire series.

Since the night her parents were brutally murdered, Katya Markova has been driven by a dark quest for vengeance. When her search for the killers leads her to the heart of Transylvania and the ancestral home of the Dalakis, she hopes to finally take her revenge and put her horrific memories and the souls of her parents to rest. Then she meets the mesmerizing Chase Deveraux, and his intensely passionate touch threatens to weaken her resolve as she surrenders to his sensual promise.

With his life in disarray, Chase has retreated to the remote castle of the Dalakis clan to sort things out in isolation, but instead is inexplicably drawn to the mysterious Katya. Instantly spellbound by her tough warrior exterior and compelling beauty, Chase finds that Katya captivates him like no other woman has before—until he learns of her dark intent and is torn between his own needs and those of his family.

Because Katya is enmeshed in a world of lies and deceptions, and has brought that world to the Dalakis doorstep. As their unquenchable passion spirals to incredible sensual heights, Chase and Katya will be forced to make a choice, one that could destroy the Dalakis clan for all time or unite the desperate young lovers for eternity…

This is a revised edition of a previous published book.
