Christmas Movie 2010
My wife loves to start traditions. In 2004 she came up with the idea of going to the theater each Christmas season to watch a movie. This tradition stuck, so each year we plan a Christmas Movie Day; complete with eating out, getting snacks, picking the perfect movie, and going to said movie. Here is a list of the Christmas Movie Days we have had as a family each year since 2004.
- 2004: Polar Express
- 2005: The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, The Witch, and The Wardrobe
- 2006: Happy Feet
- 2007: Bee Movie
- 2008: The Tale of Despereaux (which is also a great book)
- 2009: Up!
This year the movie that we are picking out is The Chronicles of Narnia: The Voyage of the Dawntreader. As a child, this was my favorite of the Narnia books. I loved the different little islands that they traveled to and the imaginative nature (thanks to C.S. Lewis) of the residents of each of these islands. I have read a few decent reviews of this particular movie, so I am already looking forward to it.
I mention all of this because TODAY is Christmas Movie Day 2010!
