- I don't know about you, but nothing gets me into the holiday spirit like a good Christmas movie.
Although "A Christmas Story" is always good for a laugh and "A Wonderful Life" is a classic, my personal favorite would have to be "Home Alone."
There is something about little Kevin McCallister that just speaks to me. A smart, caring, intelligent 8 year old boy who feels overlooked by his busy and harried family, acts out, says things he doesn't mean and has to live with the consequences. Watching him grow, fend for himself, buy groceries, order pizza (oh, and toss paint cans at the bad guys) is just a great ride of a movie.
Now, how about you? What is your favorite Holiday movie?
Those who leave a comment today, telling me their favorite Holiday film, will be entered to receive a digital download of any book from my backlist!
Now, onto the CHRISTMAS RIDE CONTEST RULES!

Now here is the pretty big hint to my song choice for the grand prize. By the way, the song is also featured in a scene from my favorite holiday film mentioned above. :-)
Giddy-up jingle horse, pick up your feet
Jingle around the clock...
Good luck in the contest!! And if you missed stops or have gotten lost along the way, here are the past blogs where the ride has been spreading Christmas cheer!
