Every year it enters our home like a plague.

It never gets better, in fact, it seems to worsen. For reasons I can't understand, my wife welcomes it, while I abhor it.

You guessed it. I'm talking about Lifetime Network Christmas movies.

3. Actually she watches those, too.

Good thing we have more than one TV in the house.

15. A while back I started to wonder if it was unhealthy for me to always default to watching

true crime murder and mayhem programs. So I subscribed to Hallmark and watched, maybe, two movies. I quickly went back to the murder and mayhem, realizing it was MUCH less damaging to my mental health.

7. Funny you would mention that.

I just returned from the grocery store, where I resisted that yet again. Just too many calories. I know I will will give in, though. I like it hot with brandy.

8. I have a terrible sweet tooth

But I really dislike eggnog. Not sure what it is.

I bought a carton for my husband.

I'll just go for the hot brandy, OK?

5. Ambitious young woman's car breaks down in

front of the only blacksmith of snowbound New Hampshire. The only food available is applesauce, peppermint schnapps, cappuccinos, vegetables from winterized greenhouse and pecan pie.

14. Lifetime likely has some type of crime involved

They specialize in "women's psychology"....

9. Oh, yuk. Those and the Hallmark ones.



However, if you want to watch a sort of an anti-Hallmark Christmas series, check out Home For Christmas on Netflix. It's about a thirty-ish woman whose family has been relentlessly pestering her about finding a new boyfriend and husband prospect ever since her former boyfriend, whom her mom adored, dumped her three years ago. So she makes up a story about having started dating a new guy whom she will bring to the family dinner on Christmas Eve - and she has only a month to find one. It sounds awful and (ick!) heartwarming, but it isn't; it's goofy and funny and very bawdy. The Hallmark aficionados would hate it but I thought it was a hoot. If you don't mind subtitled shows (this one probably couldn't get made in the US), check it out.

He seems like a guy who knows himself and does what he damn well pleases!
