Thankful Thursday Blog Hop:  Christmas In July, Movies and More

thankful thursday blog hop brian 07072022

Hello gang, thanks for stopping by for our Thankful Thursday Blog Hop.  I am always thankful to each of you for joining us!  Each and every Thursday we share the things for which we are most thankful and we always enjoy reading all of the things you are thankful for too. If you are new to our Thankful Thursday Blog Hop, thanks for hopping in, we really do get excited when new blogger pals join us!

It’s no big secret. y’all should know by now that we love Christmas here at Brian’s Home.  My Mom loves Christmas and I was born on a Christmas Tree Farm.  So, it shouldn’t be any surprise that we love Christmas.  Oh, the Dad is a fan too.  Today we’re thankful for Christmas in July and all that it brings.

We spend most of the time with the Hallmark Channel’s Christmas movies on.  They are so much better that what is on the regular TV channels these days.  It doesn’t matter if we’ve seen the movies before, we’ll watch them again.  Our Mom even found more Christmas movies over at the Great American Family channel which really made her happy.  There’s even some Christmas Music on Sirius XM.  I send you all a great big Ho-Ho-Ho!

Okay, that’s it for me today, what are you thankful for today?  Tell us in the comments and then join us for our Thankful Thursday Blog Hop.  Remember, adopt cats, we deserve it!!!!! More Forever Homes More Often! Purrrrr! Zip! Later!

Christmas in July with movies and music? Add some snacks in there too and I’m on board with the whole idea!

We LOVE the Christmas movies on the Hallmark Channel the entire month of July!

Brian, the good thing about watching those fun Hallmark Christmas movies now is that they have snow in them and I am hot. So I pretend that it’s cool. I know what your mom and dad are saying about watching tv, not much fun out there. We’re glad that we got some rain yesterday as it did get hot and dry for about 2 weeks. And we’re glad this morning that it is cool enough for me to go for a bike ride. Precious will stay home inside where it’s safe and cool and she’ll be thankful too.

Glad you enjoy the movies. Mom likes Christmas, but only at Christmastime and she isn’t much for watching movies. Thanks for hosting Thankful Thursday.

BOL! Christmas movies in July. THere is one local radio station in town that is still playing Christmas music. We thought they were just confused, or lost their other music..but maybe they just love it like your pawrents do, Brian. XOX Xena, Lucy and Chia

Pop is watching those Hallmark movies. TW says she can’t appreciate Christmas music in December if she hears it all year since Hallmark every Thursday and Friday throughout the year has Christmas movies. She watches the ballgame. Heh heh. I’m thankful for furrends like you.

Our Mom was born on Christmas Day and when she was a tween, her Mom decided that she should have a special day and moved her birthday to July 25th, It lasted about 2 years (12, 13 and 14) and Mom LOVED it! She still remembers every summer and bakes a birthday cake! So we are right there with your Peeps Brian! Great thanksfuls! Purrs Marv (and Mom)

Some of the residents I care for watch those Christmas movies, too…so I get to see bits and pieces of them…tantalizing!
What Sirius Channel is the Christmas music on…the Holiday Channel??
