Stuff Your Stockings Blog Hop!

Happy holidays to everyone! Today’s blog is geared toward two of my favorite Christmas movies of all time, National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation and A Christmas Story. I can watch these movies anytime of the year and I still laugh my butt off as if it were my first time seeing the holiday classics, well classics in my opinion.


I’ll start off with A Christmas Story. The premises of the movie is this little boy Ralphie wants a BB gun for Christmas. Throughout the whole movie people keep telling him he’ll shoot his eye out, which pretty much happens at the end. He breaks his glasses and tells his mother it was an icicle. Lying, and on Christmas day no less, is a major no-no. But nevertheless he doesn’t get caught and he falls asleep that night holding his Red Ryder BB gun. This year I feel a special connection to this movie and the whole you’ll shoot your eye out bit because my fool husband bought our two oldest sons BB guns for Christmas. I’m sure some of my fellow mothers and fathers out there feel my pain and concern.

The second movie is by far my favorite. It’s a movie I loved watching with my father when he was alive and now I enjoy watching it every Christmas with my husband, National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation. The cast of odd ball characters and the funny little lines from the movie have me in stitches the whole time. I quote the movie throughout the whole month of December. Without fail when my hubby hangs the Christmas lights around the house I’ll always say, “There not twinkling Clark”, if you’ve seen the movie you’ll know why that is funny. My husband laughs every time. And by far cousin Eddie is the funniest character. His cluelessness is classic. Then toward the end when they find a squirrel in the tree and they all run around the house trying to get away from it, has me laughing so hard tears spring to my eyes.

Okay I’m done babbling and will get to the contest for the Stuff Your Stocking. I’m giving out a $25 gift card to Amazon as well as a copy of my debut release Fate’s Second Chance.  Since National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation is my favorite holiday movie my contest question comes from it.

What is the name of Cousin Eddie’s dog in National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation??

Contest runs from the 16th-18th. If more than one person guesses right I will draw a name at random. Contest winner will be announced on Monday the 19th. Good Luck!!!

Be sure to stop by the other author’s participating in the blog hop. There are some great prizes up for grabs. I hope you enjoy my little contest as well as my blog. I can be found on Twitter and Facebook. Don’t be afraid to stop by any time!

I wish everyone a safe and happy holiday season!

  13. Ha! You mean that behemoth Snots that decimates their dining table chasing the animal and then the stuck up neighbor? Love that movie! My fav spot is when he slicks up his snow saucer, crashes after a harrowing free for all down the hill, and Eddie says 'Bingo'

    Thank you for the generous giveaway opportunity.
