For my first post I want to give you all an idea for Christmas in July. Most businesses have some kind of Christmas in July sales. Hallmark has been running Christmas specials most of the month, so I want to share with you some of my favorite Christmas movies. There are so many to chose from, but I finally narrowed down to three. Thanks to Pure Flix who made the graphic below to help me share with you my Christmas movie suggestions plus the ultimate essentials that you will need for a Christmas movie night.

I have always loved this sweet story. Yes, you pretty much know how it is going to turn out, but the journey along the way is beautiful. Sadly, they don't air this movie any more, but you can purchase it here at Amazon.

This cute movie was made for Hallmark a couple of years ago, and I loved it from the first time that I saw it. The little girl in the movie is so adorable, and who doesn't like a good princess movie, right? Danica McKellar does a terrific job as the governess, and I love how she relates to the little girl. Of course you can watch this movie on Hallmark come Christmas season, but if you can't wait until then, you can purchase it here from Amazon. In fact, my family and I just watched this movie last night! It has become one of our favorites!
starring Emilie Ullerup and Kristoffer Polaha
This heart warming story was made for Hallmark last Christmas. I must admit that it was my favorite Christmas movie that they put out last Christmas. This story will definitely touch your heart. I recommend that you have a box of tissues next to you when you watch it, as there will not be a dry eye in the house. Sadly, this movie is not available for purchase, but hopefully it will be soon.
1. A comfy spot to curl up
2. Hot Chocolate
3. Christmas cookies (Yes, I definitely recommend making Christmas cookies in July)
4. If you have a fireplace, you could turn the A/C up and light the fireplace for an extra Christmasy feel.
5. Turn off all of your electronic devices. This is definitely a must for quality family time no matter what you are doing.
So this my first suggestion for Family Fun Friday. Enjoy the last Friday of July with a Christmas movie night!!! I would love to hear what your some of your favorite Christmas movies are, so please feel free to let me know in the comments below. Have A Wonderful Day!!!
