Now let’s head to Peaks and see what Christmas movies my two leading ladies enjoy.
First, I asked Bethany, the main character of Wildflowers from Winter, to tell me about her favorite Christmas movie:
I can’t help it. The Christmas Story. That movie slays me. My brother and I used to watch it on VHS the entire week leading up until Christmas Eve. One year I even asked my dad for a Red Ryder BB gun. He laughed, but I was completely serious. And then in 1997, David and I discovered TNT was airing an entire Christmas Story marathon. I think we watched it five times in a row that first year.
I asked Robin, the main character of Wishing on Willows, the same thing:
Bethany has tried to open my eyes to the merit of The Christmas Story, but I’m just not there yet. The leg lamp? Ralphy and his mashed potatoes? I don’t get it.
Choosing a favorite movie is almost as challenging as picking a favorite song. If you read about my childhood tradition, you should know that I’ve watched almost every Christmas movie ever made. With that said, I’d probably have to go with A Christmas Carol–the old, black and white version. That’s my dad’s favorite. He always loved when me or Mom would choose that one to watch on Christmas night. The ghosts are a little freaky, but something about the way Ebenezer Scrooge changes at the end always gets to me.
