A Christmas Carol! (Giveaway)

CONTESTS | | November 24, 2010 at 6:42 pm


Congratulations Holly!

You know how some movies are just an essence of Christmas? Somehow we never ever planned to watch any at my home. On the other hand seeing Christmas in 90 degree temperatures felt much different, than the snowy holidays I see out in Boston. The one show though that I did manage to see every year, not by choice – but by the fact that we had very few television channels was A Christmas Carol. It manage to intrigue and inspire me at the same time.

The new and updated version is obviously of a quality that makes you blink as you can swear that it is not animation but live characters. The almost 3D effect makes you feel like you are there with the characters (actually it is in 3D but I don’t have a 3D TV). Of course due to the amazing technical changes visually it is a far cry from the older version but the story is still the same. No matter how time flies the message of Scrooge s clear as sometimes there is a little of him in all of us. This holiday season it would be good to remember that there are many “Tiny Tims” around as well. You know the story and the whole “Bah humbug” of it all and I am sure you all remember the 3 ghosts and, like me, wondered what our 3 ghosts would show us.

So whether you have never watched the movie A Christmas Carol or want to reminisce about it again – you can win one here on MommyNiri.com.

Want to win the DVD  A Christmas Carol (valued at $39.99 for 2 disc – Blu-Ray DVD combo)?

To win tell me what is your favorite holiday movie? Contest closes 27th November 2010. (please don’t leave your email address in the comment).
