Blink Blog: Holiday Favorites

Christmas is less than two weeks away!! A few of our Blink authors shared their favorite Christmas movies and holiday albums. Keep reading to see what they shared.


Jonathan Friesen: I’m not so into movies. I dig the old T.V. specials like How the Grinch Stole Christmas. I like the Peanuts Christmas. Love Rudolf and Frosty. So, I’m a classic T.V. special guy.

Evangeline Denmark:  Just Friends, Elf, How the Grinch Stole Christmas, The Holiday, and White Christmas

Lorie Langdon: I adore Christmas movies and have a bit of an addiction to the Hallmark Channel this time of year, but I always have to watch; ELF, HOME ALONE, A CHARLIE BROWN CHRISTMAS, A CHRISTMAS STORY, and MIRACLE ON 34TH STREET

Stephanie Morrill: It’s A Wonderful Life, A Charlie Brown Christmas, How The Grinch Stole Christmas, A Christmas Carol, and Miracle on 42nd Street

Christina June: Love Actually, The Holiday, A Christmas Story, A Mom for Christmas, Elf


Jonathan Friesen: Any album with “White Christmas” and the song about chestnuts on it. I love those two songs and sing them all year long. This drives my family a bit looney, but, hey.

Evangeline Denmark: Wintersong by Sarah McLachlan, The Dawn of Grace by Sixpence None the Richer, and Let it Snow Baby…Let it Reindeer by Relient K

Lorie Langdon: Harry Connick Jr. When My Heart Finds Christmas, Glee The Christmas Album, Michael Buble Christmas, Celtic Woman Home For Christmas, and White Christmas featuring Bing Crosby (I’d listen to Bing Crosby singing the alphabet…Love his voice!)

Stephanie Morrill: Only two stick out for me. My absolute favorite is the Charlie Brown Christmas album. I grew up watching A Charlie Brown Christmas every year, and I now watch it with my kids. The soundtrack is always on when we  decorate the tree, open gifts, or drive around looking at lights.

The other one is Amy Grant’s Christmas album, which is also a relic from childhood. I think it’s the first CD my parents ever bought way back in the day, and the whole thing is very early 90s. But the season just doesn’t feel right without it.
