The Christmas question she asks you: What’s your favorite Christmas movie, and why? Her answer: I’m a pretty classic girl – I love the vintage books and films that get better over time. It’s a Wonderful Life (1946) takes me back to the nostalgia of watching Christmas movies as a young girl. We had a non-traditional Christmas Eve in our family – we’d eat at a Mexican restaurant and head to the cinema to see a Christmas movie together each year! We’d then head home and snuggle in by the warmth of a fire while we’d wait for Jesus’ birthday to arrive. : )
Mine (Cara’s) would have to be White Christmas. Adore that movie!

Beth K. Vogt lives in Colorado with her husband and her about-to-turn-thirteen-year-old daughter. Her three older children (and their spouses) also live in Colorado – close enough to make it home for the holidays! Beth writes contemporary romance set in the Colorado Rockies. You can find out more about her books on her website: bethvogt.com. Beth’s giving away two of her books this week on her blog as a Christmas present to her readers. So make sure you hop on over and leave a comment for a chance to win! For our Christian Fiction Christmas Giveaway, she’s chipping in a copy of Catch a Falling Star and a handmade hummingbird ornament.
The Christmas question Beth wants YOU to answer is … What is your favorite Christmas tradition? Her answer: Through the years, our family developed the tradition of opening presents on Christmas Eve and then saving our Christmas stockings for Christmas morning. Now that our kiddos are older, they have fun adding presents to the stockings too. Afterward, my husband cooks a big breakfast for everyone.
Usually, my (Cara’s) kids and I bake lots of cookies. It’s a tradition we might have to set aside this year, but I love it!
