Sunday, December 12th

Due to the rainy and cold weather, I’m declaring this a tele-leisure Sunday.  If you wanna stay in the holiday spirit, maybe you should just stay home!  Get cozy and kick back, people.  Here’s a list of holiday-oriented movies to get you in the mood.  And if you’re not into that sort of thing, you can watch football : )
