Every year our neighbor down the road hosts a Christmas Movies by the Fire evening. Usually it's the second weekend of December. They provide the hot chocolate, hot dogs, and s'more makins' and the rest of us bring something to share. Then they blow up their large inflatable movie screen and project the movie onto it. We all bring lawn chairs and a bunch of blankets and watch movies well into the night.
This year's double feature included Fred Claus and White Christmas. While we were unable to stay for the movies we were able to go down to enjoy hot chocolate, hot dogs, chili, eggrolls, corn casserole and numerous fabulous desserts. The kids had a great time playing with the other neighborhood kids and we shared in some fun neighborly conversation.
We look forward to this night every year!
