    It was suggested that we all might benefit from having the Rudolph Day post up earlier in the month so we can look over the categories and see if we have the movie, book, magazine, etc. or look out for them at our local library or book store. The 10th of the month sounded like enough notice so here we go for the first month, hosted by AuntJamelle:

    January

    Movie - The Bishops Wife
    Book - Louisa May Alcott's Christmas Treasury (Collection of short stories by the author of Little Women)
    Magazine - Any Southern Living Christmas issue!
    Blog - Christmas Blog Hop starting wtih My 100 Year Old Home!
    YouTube - How To Make a Door Wreath from Antique Books
    Pinterest - Two More Book Page "Wreath" Ideas!

    Check back here on the 25th and share your thoughts on January's categories. As always, substitutions are fine if you can't locate an item in the categories listed.

    More detail on each category from AuntJamelle:

    Movie - The Bishops Wife

    Dejected by his efforts to raise money to build a cathedral, Bishop Henry Brougham (David Niven) beseeches heaven for guidance, and is visited immediately by Dudley (Cary Grant), who claims to be an angel. Henry is skeptical, then annoyed when Dudley ingratiates himself into the household as his assistant -- and worse, wins the attentions of Henry's long-suffering and kindly wife (Loretta Young). When Dudley continues to intervene in Henry's struggles, the bishop decides to challenge heaven.

    Book - Louisa May Alcott's Christmas Treasury (Collection of short stories by the author of Little Women)

    "The Quiet Little Woman" and "Kate's Choice," here gathers those tales along with 18 others to comprise a "Christmas treasury"-all of Alcott's known Christmas sketches in one volume. Some will be dearly familiar to readers; an excerpt from Little Women, for example, reminds us of the yuletide benevolence of Marmee and her four girls. Other touching stories are less well known, such as "What Love Can Do," about residents of a boarding house joining together to make a lovely Christmas for two poor girls. (Poverty and Christmas charity are the themes that tie most of these stories together.)

    I would check the library for this one!

    Magazine - Any Southern Living Christmas issue! Share which one you pick and any ideas from it you love!

    That's a great idea. I always mean to find the movie, book etc. This gives us time to put the book on hold etc. :)

    I found at the library The Quiet Little Woman, A Christmas Story by Lousia May Alcott. It included 2 other short stories Tilly's Christmas and Rosa's Tale. I read it already, easy read, short in length and enjoyable.

    I already own this movie. I thought I also have The Preacher's Wife but I couldn't find it.
    I read the blog listed & looked at the Pinterest photos.
    I'll watch the movie on the evening of the 25th. :)
