RJ SCOTT HOLIDAY HOP DEC 1 & 2


Good morning everyone! Grab yourself a cup of coffee, and do help yourself to the fresh cinnamon bread. I'm Lee Brazil, author of mm romance for Breathless Press, Story Orgy and Silver Publishing. I write primarily contemporary romance, but dabble a bit with paranormal and historical romance as well.

RJ Scott has invited us all to share the spirit of the Christmas season with you- and I'm most definitely up for that. I love the holiday season- there's nothing as pretty as a canvass of pure snow, or a frost covered fir tree, nothing as enticing as the warm scents of cinnamon and pine.

I reach back in my memories, because this season is all about family and tradition, and one of the things that kids today don't have that we had, was the sheer joy of anticipation, the steadily building awareness that Christmas was coming. These kids get to watch the holiday movies and classics whenever they want, thanks the genius that is Netflix, the innovation of DVD's.

Forty years ago? We had the TV Guide. Our December was plotted and planned around the viewing schedule. Charlie Brown Christmas, Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer, Frosty the Snowman, and my personal favorite, Santa Claus is Coming to Town, were only on once, and if you missed it, too bad.

These days I’m grateful for the opportunity to watch my favorites anytime I want- but I kind of miss the way having them staggered out across the month helped build the anticipation.

I leave you with this little bit of my favorite: 




 Now, you leave me the name of your favorite holiday cartoon classic, and I'll enter you to win an ebook of your choice form my back list. Easy as that, and no waiting until the 25th to open it either! 


Thanks for stopping by and letting me ramble, there's a lot of other folks playing today as well, so skip on over and visit them for more chances to win!

  2. Not sure if it qualifies as a cartoon, but The Polar Express is a firm favourite these days.
    The Mickey Mouse xmas films are always good and the cartoon Christmas Carol released last year? ( or maybe year before?) was good

  3. Wow. I haven't watched cartoons in years and years. I'd have to go way back to when I was a kid. I don't remember the title but the one I watched every year was Rudolph where they used animated 'puppets' and there was an elf that wanted to be a dentist.

  9. Definitely A Charlie Brown Christmas! I have the innovative jazzy soundtrack, too. I even remember the first time I saw it, almost 50 years ago. Awesome, classic!

  12. My favorite was and still is the Garfield Christmas special. Sadly they don't show it on TV anymore, but I did manage to find it on DVD so I get it out every year and watch it.

Be Yourself

To be nobody but yourself in a world which is doing its best, night and day, to make you everybody else means to fight the hardest battle which any human being can fight; and never stop fighting. ~e.e. cummings, 1955
