2006 G.I.F.T. Challenge

The blogosphere's very own Carl V. is hosting another terrific challenge. For the Christmas season it's the 2006 G.I.F.T Challenge, which stands for Giving Inspiration, Fostering Tradition.
What you agree to do, if you choose to participate, is to partake of and/or post on any 4 of the following:

Christmas movies
Christmas novels/short stories
Christmas songs
Christmas poems
Christmas traditions
Christmas memories

For whichever 4 things you choose you will post about them. That is where the giving comes in. Giving of yourself for the shared edification and inspiration of others. Your favorite Christmas movie, story, song, etc. may just inspire others to try it out. At the very least we will share in your joy and enthusiasm as you give us a glimpse into who you are by sharing memories, traditions, and favorites.

My favorite Christmas movie is the musical Scrooge starring Albert Finney. The picture of him on this cover looks pretty dorky, but trust me, the movie is great, the best rendition of Dicken's Christmas Carol I've ever seen. Alec Guiness plays the part of Morley's ghost and he does an awesome job. In fact, all the ghosts are amazing. The flashbacks to Scrooge's past are heartwarming and heart-breaking. It's time to pull it out and watch it again.

Merry Christmas!

I thought you had to post on four of the items. Are you going to do four separate posts? I don't think I've ever actually watched this version of The Christmas Carol. Maybe we can watch it together when I come home.

I don't think I've seen this version either. So what do you have to do to enter this challenge? Also, how do you put those challenge buttons on your blogs. I'm so illiterate.

To enter the challenge click on the button which will take you to Carl's blog. He has instructions there.

I will have to SHOW you how to add the buttons, I know I couldn't explain it clearly enough for anyone to follow.

oh, I have been here before. I didn't even put the two blogs together! I wonder about myself sometimes. lol

I made the change on the advent calendar and I will add this to my links next time I redo it. :)
