Let it Snow, Let it Snow

Well, the weather outside today is frightful. I ended up with the night off work, there have been accidents everywhere! You would think that people had never seen snow before the way this week has been playing out. I mean, the newspapers were saying that people were surprised by the snow that fell on Tuesday, and as a result, there were a record amount of car accidents. I ask you, it's December, we live in Canada, who is surprised by snow? I think people thought we had moved to Florida or something. Today was not much better. My boss had to pick up her son from day care and she said that their were four accidents just on the main road. So, I will be sticking close to my nice warm house where I have all ready spent the afternoon reading, so why not the night.

I am so excited to share this cute mini movie for the holiday season! I never think to check YouTube for things like this, but someone posted it on a message board I visit and I just HAD to share. It is one of my most fondest Christmas memories. We used to watch it every year. Click here to have a view of your own, it might bring back your own Christmas memories. Just a warning, though, someone flagged it, so you have to have an account to view it. When you do, though, it is rated general, so even your kids can watch it.

  1. What are the rules of the Travel Back in History Challenge? Are you hosting it? Is it your own personal challenge?


  2. I am doing it for myself, but if people were interested, I could totally make it a more formal challenge. I am trying to read 12 historical fiction books off of my shelves, and to try and make it a broad subject matter. Not just one subject 12 times. You are welcome to join in if you wish.

  3. A historical fiction challenge??!! Can I play?

  4. Sure! Feel free to join in anyone that wants to :)
