Christmas in Bloggyland Tour


Take a special Christmas Tour in Bloggyland with Cynthia of Muse Swings and her elves. Travel from blog to blog to see what wonderful things our fellow bloggers have done to celebrate the Holidays.

Below is a fest of Holiday films for your enjoyment. Whether between festivities or at the end of the day, I hope you enjoy some all-around favorites!


in Babes in Toyland

"Christmas in July?"


"Every time a bell rings, an angel gets its wings.


Dudley, the mischievous angel.


"God bless us everyone."


"I'll be fashionably late."


Have yourself a Merry Little Christmas!


"You have a freak flag. You just don't fly it.'


Christmas is all around us!


"It's the Santa Anna winds. Anything can happen!"


"Good night." "Sweet dreams."

Great post. I never heard of the Italian one LOL. I love Babes in Toyland. I think I'm the only person in the world that does not like It's a Wonderful Life. Strange it's the type of movie I like and has all the favorite stars.

Happy tour from blogland

Petra - You've outdone yourself! I enjoyed every single minute. Next to poetry, film IS my passion! (Oh, and of course food and books and cats and, but you know what I mean!)

It makes me want to go and blow a bundle on a bunch of Christmas movies. I've got a few, but I've not seen "The Holiday" and only have "Meet Me In St. Louis" on video.

So delightful! (That seems to be my word for the season.)

Now this IS funny! Petra - your Museswings link isn't working. Earlier, I noticed her link for you wasn't working and she fixed it. Ha ha - those Christmas gremlins at work!


Margaret Ann said...

What a fantastic collection...WOWZA!
I'm coming back for a "breather" later on from all the bloggyland tour activity today. I plan to watch them all...feet up on a choclate in hand...mmmm!
It's a bit chilly in the desert of Arizona today...that frigid cold front from the NW is hitting us...Thanks for the memories and the nostalgic walk back in time! :)

Joanne said...

Thank you for leaving a comment on my blog.

I loved all your movie picks. I have yet to see The Holiday and The Bishop's Wife, but they are both on my to be watched list.

MuseSwings said...

I love your movie clips! Babes in Toyland is an old favorite! Thanks for taking part in the tour and entertaining us in your private theater!

Excellent picks! My fav is Love Actually - I could watch that every single day and not get sick of it.

Merry Christmas!

Janeen said...

Oh the Holiday ~ Jude is a cutie in that one! (Sigh) ha ha Came by to visit you on the Christmas Tour today and having a ball! I love watching old movies too! Thanks for sharing! Well, I'm off to visit the others!

On another note, my home computer monitor died last night after the kids played a game on it. It's 8 years old, I got my use out of it. I guess all I want for Christmas is a new computer monitor! So I'll be on remotely until then so not to worry if you don't see me post as often!

Aimee said...

I enjoyed the clips! Thanks!

I have to admit I've never seen "THE FAMILY STONE" ... and here I thought I saw every Christmas movie.

Awesome tour stop!

Alex and Alicia said...

Thank you SO much for sharing all of these wonderful clips! I loved exploring the many different kinds that you provided for all of us visitors. Very creative. :)

The scene you included from the Grinch has to be one of my favorites :)
