"Holiday Inn"

It's no secret that I love anything "Christmas-y". Case in point- I have been listening to Christmas music pretty much nonstop since the week before Thanksgiving. I usually try to pack in as many Christmas events as possible during the holiday season. Past events include: The Rockettes Christmas Spectacular, "The Nutcracker" by the Alabama Ballet, The Shakespeare Festival's "A Christmas Carol", etc. Last year, the Shakespeare Festival wasn't doing "A Christmas Carol", but we did take a girls' trip to see "Peter Pan" instead. This year, I wanted to do something different. Much to my delight, the Alabama Theater in Birmingham does a Holiday Film Series, where they show various Christmas movies in the weeks leading up to Christmas (thanks to Calley for the heads up). During the ONE weekend that Clint and I had free, it just so happened that "Holiday Inn" was playing. Perfect- a Christmas movie that I'd never seen before! Clint and I met Sarah and Taylor one Sunday afternoon to see the movie. It was such a cute film, and we all enjoyed it! Seeing anything at The Alabama is an experience alone- such a gorgeous theater! We were also treated to Christmas carol sing-a-longs as the organist played along. The movies range from old black and white films all the way up to modern movies like "Elf". I highly recommend this for anyone- families or couples looking for a little fun in the spirit of the season!

Beth, I'm so glad you liked the movie! I hate that we could not join you that day. :( It's a classic movie and one of my favorites. I'm still shocked you had not already seen it!
Merry Christmas!
