** Congrats to Allicia F. The Sound of Music giveaway package is headed your way! **
What’s your favorite holiday movie? At the top of my list is The Sound of Music. Not sure why I associate it with Christmas, but growing up it was one movie we often watched on Christmas Eve. Now Joel and I have continued the tradition with our growing little family and I love that our oldest enjoys it just as I did when I was her age.
Tonight at 8:00/7:00 centralÂ The Sound of Music LIVEÂ airs on NBC. Carrie Underwood stars in the live telecast of a beloved family classic, based on the original Broadway musical. I’m told the new version will be a faithful adaptation of the original stage musical.Â Good, because I’m already a tad skeptical … having a hard time picturing (and hearing) Carrie Underwood as Maria. BUT, given I fall in love all over again with the story and its music, we’ll be watching Carrie and the gang tonight (and keeping the DVD of the original handy just in case of an emergency!).
Good news! In honor of the live airing tonight, we’re giving away aÂ Sound of Music poster, T-shirt, and the soundtrack album featuring Carrie Underwood. To enter to win, please do the following TWO thingsÂ byÂ 11:59pm easternÂ TONIGHT.

2. Leave a comment below — share your favorite Christmas movie with us!
P.S., Full disclosure — another family fave wasÂ Smoky Mountain ChristmasÂ with Dolly Parton and Lee Majors (please, donâ€™t judge). Itâ€™s about aÂ country-western singer on a trip through the Tennessee mountains who runs into a reclusive backwoodsman â€¦ and a witch. Just screams instant ChristmasÂ classic doesnâ€™t it?
Now have at it in the comment box — what’s your favorite holiday movie? Looking forward to reading your responses. And don’t forget to share the photo to your Facebook page, too!
