The Countdown Begins

No matter how you cut it, the countdown to Christmas is on. Whether you start listening to Christmas music on the radio the day after Halloween, or you follow the liturgical calendar, or you just plain wait for December, the time has come! Christmas is on its way, and Brooklyn is celebrating by finally putting the September temperatures behind it.

I love the weeks leading up to Christmas for all the joy, expectation, and hope that they bring. I also love that they are an excuse to watch my favorite Christmas movies!


Elf. Check.


A Charlie Brown Christmas (NOT It’s Christmastime Again, Charlie Brown, which is clearly a sequel).


All I Want for Christmas.


And finally, this YouTube video, which I have admittedly already watched twice.


Happy Christmas Countdown!
