OLIVER’S SANTA CONTEST
HO HO HO! Santa Oliver has come to town to announce the winner of his contest. He wanted to know what Christmas carol or movie makes you sentimental and why. After making a list and checking it twice, he has a winner. With no further ado, here’s Oliver.
A ho ho ho and a Merry Christmas! Thank y’all so very much for entering my contest. Each of your stories have moved me to tears. Here are the entries.
Well my favorite is the movie Frosty the Snowman. The reason why is that I was living in the Gulf and went on job interview. Well a lady came out of the house and then I sat at the table and filled out the info for her; well she said 'my husband has to decide. Well what come out my Mouth, Fosty the snowman it just reminded me of him and he laughed and he said 'you be here tomorrow at 8 am' and then I worked
for him and his wife and his friends for over 2 years
I love watching The Christmas Card. Both and my husband and I come from military
families and it means so much to us.
Every year we would have soldiers over for Christmas and share with them. It made
it special for both of us. Some of those Christmases stayed with me for a very long
"It's a Wonderful Life"! I love this movie and every time a bell rings (lol around
christmas, at least) I always think "Huh, an angel just got his or her wings." lol
The reason why I love it is because this movie started me actually giving other classic
movies a chance, and I would have missed so many great movies if it hadn't
This year my christmas song is I'll be home for christmas . Last year hubby and my
dad wasnt able to get here for christmas but this year they are both suppose to get
home so i have been sing I'll be home for Christmas all month long .. there's just
nothing like have the whole family here :)
My favorite classic movie is Christmas Vacation with
Chevy Chase. I love when he
has a nervous breakdown and everyone want to go home and he blows up. At the end
he want some tylenol. That gets me everytime. I often wondered how many takes he
had to do or if it was one. Every year we watch this movie. I always feel like no
matter how bad things are they can never be as bad as Christmas Vacation. Especially
the turkey. LOL. Merry Christmas.
Thanks for the giveaway.
MY FAVORITE SONG IS "I'LL BE HOME FOR CHRISTMAS" AND IT RINGS TRUE AS OUR SOLDIERS
ARE COMING HOME!
My son has a profound hearing loss. At the children's Christmas concert he & his
classmates signed OH HOLY NIGHT as the music played softly in the background. Tears
streamed down my face the entire way through. It was incredibly beautiful.
My favorite holiday movie is ‘White Christmas’ with Bing Crosby and Fred Astair.
It just inspires me to think about other people during this time of the year when
we can all be overwhelmed by the commercialism of the season. I love the songs
and the scenery, it does not hurt that it takes place in my neck of the woods up
Oliver grins. And the winner is Mary Preston. Congratulations love. You and your sweet son win a box of chocolates. All other entries win a pdf of Winter Wonders. Christmas Angel stars yours truly as leading alpha male. Happy reading. Stay tuned for more stories in 2012 starring Oliver. Wishing you and yours a very Merry Christmas!
LOVE AND BLESSINGS
Sharon and Oliver
