HOOKED ON HOLIDAY MOVIES
Laura Tremaine joins me this week to share her experience watching her very first Lifetime holiday movie, and it’s both exactly what we expected and a whole lot of fun! Laura is the author of Share Your Stuff, I’ll Go First, the creator of the #onedayHH Instagram campaign, and the host of the 10 Things to Tell You podcast. She’s also a complete newcomer to the world of holiday movies. Though she’s married to an actual movie director, Laura admitted to me last fall (when I was a guest on her podcast) that she’s never watched a made-for-TV holiday movie. So this year, I asked if she’d be willing to give one a try—and she said yes! In the language of TikTok and good students everywhere, Laura understood this assignment.
The Couch Podcast #95: A Castle for Christmas & An Unexpected Christmas with Meg Tietz of Sorta Awesome
Can I convince a holiday movie skeptic to give holiday movies a try? (Spoiler alert: I can!) Meg Tietz is the host of the Sorta Awesome Show and the creator of the Sorta Awesome Hangout Community, and I adore her and both of those things so much! Last December I was on an episode of Sorta Awesome with Meg, in an attempt to convince her to try watching holiday movies. I have finally succeeded, and she’s here today to talk about the movie she watched and one I watched as well.
Is anything better than watching our favorite characters in our favorite shows engage in holiday hijinks? Or learning something brand-new about those characters when they go home for the holidays or attempt to roast a turkey or win the ugly sweater contest? I don’t know for sure, but I do know that I love a good holiday episode of my fave TV shows. And that’s why my friend and friend of the show, Kathi Lipp, is here to help me make a list of the best (or, at least, our favorite) holiday TV episodes.

Fake Snow & Real Faith
by Anna Rendell & Mary Carver
Love holiday movies? Love Jesus? This is the devotional for you! Mary and Anna take ten topics commonly found in holiday movies (think snowball fights, meddling angels, and holiday baking) and pair them up with a personal story and lesson from Scripture. This devotional is a light and inspiring read, perfect for a quick break from the hustle and bustle of an over-full holiday season. Here’s to fake snow and real faith!
