Family Holiday Books, by Clare Dugmore
Family Holiday Books, by Jordan Elizabeth Everyone I speak to wants to share his or her holiday tradition. Baking Christmas cookies with grandparents, building a snowman, decorating a tree as a family, opening presents on Christmas Eve… When I think back on my Christmas holidays, a book comes to mind first.

Cure a Holiday Movie Hangover!, by Clare Dugmore
Cure a Holiday Movie Hangover! by Rena Rocford There are few things as terrible as the feeling of having your favorite movie end, be it The Hobbit, the last episode of Game of Thrones, or one of the vast multitudes of holiday movies. As a kid, one of my favorite Holiday Movies was Home Alone. […]

Paddington is Marmalous, by Jason Purdy
Paddington is an anomaly. Amongst Christmas films and hackneyed reboots of characters beloved by adults and barely known by today’s A.D.D riddled, Minecraft obsessed youth, it is a rare thing. It is a genuinely good film. Not just for kids, for adults too. Many movies that claim to be family simply mean that they don’t […]
Ho-ho-hold the treacle: Most holiday movies stink. Demand better!, by Randee Dawn
After much delay, at last I saw “Maleficent” the other night. And yes, while it is full of exactly what one expects from a Disney film – for (spoiler alert), example, a villain given grace by his vanquisher tries one last time for the win and ends up falling to his death – it took […]
