2nd Annual Cheesy Christmas Movie Night

For the second year in a row, Emily and I have had Joanne and Amanda over to watch a cheesy Christmas movie. Becky joined us for the 2nd annual viewing of a cheesy Christmas movie. What is a cheesy Christmas movie, you might ask? Here are two examples: "Call Me Mrs. Miracle" and "The Christmas Hope." A cheesy Christmas movie, by definition is not a classic (like Charlie Brown, It's a Wonderful Life, or Miracle On 34th Street). It's not a well known movie (like National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation or A Christmas Story). It is a made for TV movie that probably aired on abcfamily or the Hallmark Channel. It has bad music in the background and over-the-top acting. Last year we watched an abcfamily movie called "Holiday in Handcuffs" starring Mario Lopez (Slater from Saved By the Bell) and Melissa Joan Hart. The movies shown above were our selections this year.
Joanne was giving a dramatic reading of the back of one of the movies so we could make an educated vote.
We decided a secret ballot into the ornament candy dish was the only way to choose which movie to watch! This is serious business here, folks!
It was intense, but with unanimous votes, "Call Me Mrs. Miracle" won.
Here are Becky, Joanne, and Amanda getting ready to enjoy the movie by the glow of the Christmas tree. Yes, this is without the flash and literally the only lights (besides the TV) were from the Christmas tree :)

The movie provided all the cheese factor we had hoped for and more! We're already discussing selections for next year...

No matter how cheesy the movie was, good times with good friends is all that matters!
