Maria, gratia plena

One of the first things to get me into the Holiday
Spirit has got to be Christmas Movies.
This year I watched my first one during the first few days of December
and i have basically been in the mood ever since!

This is my first December that i haven't been cramming for finals,
researching essay topics, or prepping last minute projects.
It has made a Complete difference about how i think about this time of year.
Usually i am so burnt out BY Christmas that all of the fun
holiday traditions are completely lost and more of a last minute thought/burden.

Anyway, not this year!
I have completely been enjoying the prep and craziness of December.
I've been spending so much time with family and friends.
I started my Christmas shopping so early and have nearly finished already.
I have already sent out my huge stack of Christmas cards and
actually feel organized! score.
Not to mention, Michael Buble's Christmas CD has been playing nonstop.

Anyway here is my mostly complete list of Holiday movies that i would
love to watch before December comes to a close.
