An Obsession

It's no secret I'm obsessed with the holiday season. I've already listened to a little bit of Christmas music this year (like 3 songs) and this weekend when Hallmark released their new ornaments for the season, I was all over it.

There are sooo many cute ornaments this year! I've already sent my mom to Hallmark to buy an ornament that I'm afraid they'll sell out of.

See, my family loves the movie National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation. Hallmark started selling a series of ornaments last year commemorating the movie and by the time I got back to the States, they were sold out everywhere. Even on Ebay the ornament is selling for about $65.00. So, I wasn't letting that happen this year.



I'm also a huge fan of the Grinch. In fact, one of these days I'd love to have a tree with just Grinch ornaments. I'm nowhere close to having enough though, but I do have enough Barbie ornaments to have my own Barbie tree. I just need a white tree, I've already got the pink lights!



Last, but not least, I love the Doorways Around the World series. I'm a bit behind on collecting them, as I only have the first year, which is Germany and missed out on Mexico and Ireland, but this year's door is Italy and I feel that's a must have since we live there!



There's seriously a ton of other ornaments that I'd love to have, they did a great job this year on the ornaments. Check them out!

I LOVE Hallmark ornaments. I would say about 90% of mine are from Hallmark. My mom likes to get me one each year and then I like looking for sales after the season.

This officially kick-started my excitement for Christmas!! I have to admit, though, that I have already started reading 'Skipping Christmas' :) And my favorite Christmas movie is definitely the National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation! Yay!

How funny that you posted this! I was browsing through my reader and I had to do a double take because I just wrote my post for tomorrow and thought that I had accidentally posted it! Nope, it was your post!

Anyways, I'm obsessed with the holiday season as well and Christmas Vacation is my all time favorite movie!

I don't think I've ever bought an ornament from Hallmark! I'm a huge Christmas fan though! I might have to see about having someone purchase me one of those door ornaments if it's Italy this year!

My grandma bought me a Barbie ornament every year for Christmas while growing up, to match the actual Christmas Barbie I got. So I have a TON of them. To showcase 'em, I decided on a pink tree with white lights. It looks so neat! :) I'm glad someone else has the obsession like me.
