Before I get into the heart and meat of this post, there is something I need to say….
I confess I have neglected my blog. I know my lack of writing hasn’t kept anyone from eating or sleeping, but I have to openly apologize to my blog for not taking better care of it!
So, Dear Blog- I’m sorry! Love-deej
Okay, thanks for letting me get that out. I feel much better!
It is no secret that I love Christmas like I love apples, and that’s a lot! I love the sentiment-ness, romance-ness, commercial-ness, and magical-ness of the season and I’m going to spend now until Christmas Day sharing the details of my love/obsession!
The beauty of blog-nicity, is that you don’t have to read it! Nope! My blog is really another avenue for me to be creative because let’s face it, one can never have enough creative outlets and creative exercises.
There’s no order in my Christmas lovin’ qualities…I love them all equally and they all have their place.
So, to begin….
I can’t recall the age I was when I first watched Garfield Christmas, but I can say, I remember watching it on VHS when the Stoika family recorded it off tv. I believe it was recorded after the Cosby episode when all the men were pregnant. Perhaps a sibling can correct me if I’m wrong! Either way, I have finally purchased this on DVD and couldn’t be more excited!
So, Garfield. Watching this was a Stoika tradition that is still carried out to this day…even if we all aren’t together, we still try to watch it!
I was going to list all the things I love about this movie, but then I realized that I’d be quoting the entire movie!!! So, here’s a few clips! Please watch! It will make your heart smile! Mine doesn’t stop from the time the opening scene starts!
Every time I watch this I’m always taken back to my childhood watching this with my family, which I love very much! It’s like I’m taken back to a time of sweet innocence, hope, love, and pure joy.
