I have to admit, I’m not one for made-up holidays. I groan at the heavy push from retailers to transform every day off work into a gift-giving event. (How much longer until we exchange presents on St. Patrick’s day?!) I also hate rushing through each season. (I’m ignoring all the back-to-school supplies) or feeling PRESSURE to buy buy buy during sale days.
BUT…I make an exception.
Because of my love of Hallmark Channel’s Countdown to Christmas. If you tune into Hallmark Channel, you can watch some of the very best of the past ten years’ movies this week.
These feel-good stories resonate with me. As a kid, I watched our VHS taped Christmas specials year-round. On sick days, nothing could cheer me up like “Glo-Worm Christmas” or “Muppet Family Christmas.” As an adult, I still turn to heartwarming stories (and the absolute MAGIC of Christmas).

I’ll be tuning in and getting in the spirit of the season as I continue to work on Holidays, Inc.
