Every year Hallmark puts out their Christmas movie. Every year my mom reminds me to watch. Every year I cry like a baby. Never during the movie, only during the commercials.

I don't just cry, I bawl. I get that ugly face and sound and then the dam breaks loose and I am a mess.

This year it was a new commercial. The little boy has to do a presentation before his class. He is probably in 3rd grade. He is to tell about his life. He uses Hallmark ornaments to give details about him. He ends with a star and quickly starts to pack up. The teacher asks him why they star. He says that his mom says that he is the star of her life.


Of course the commercial about the teacher retiring and the former student who is now an adult coming to give him a card of thanks came on next and made it even worse.

The holiday season is just so hard with all the family and kid commericals. One just finished about how the father loves to watch his daughter while she is sleeping. He says that if you are a parent you will understand why. What about us who aren't?

Does Hallmark get you? To be honest, it doesn't even have to be really touching. I get choked up pretty easily watching tv.

I have only seen those Hallmark movies once...when we were in PY and your mom sent a tape for you. I don't think we have them here in the north country. I LOVED the commercials way back when...must have been back in '99 (doesn't that sound so olden-day-ish?) teeheehee
