Shani Petroff's Secret Santa - 15 hours ago
I love the holidays -- big ones, small ones, even ones I don't celebrate.The excitement and holiday spirit this time of year always makes me smile.So while I celebrate Hanukkah myself, I still love Christmas and have many wonderful memories surrounding the holiday.One that I've been thinking about a lot lately takes place right after college. I was acting in a theater tour. We drove around in a giant van and moved from state to state, city to city, town to town, and every night we were in a different hotel/motel. Christmas was getting closer, but holiday festivities were getting lost with all the travel.So I convinced everyone we needed to do a Secret Santa and have a Christmas party.We each pulled a name out of a hat and then had several weeks where we got to surprise each other with little gifts, notes, etc.Trying to find gifts, attempting to figure out your Secret Santa, not letting anyone know whose name you had (even though you were around these people practically 24/7) and planning the party wound up re-energizing all of us. There was a lot of laughter, jokes, and holiday spirit.In fact, I loved that Secret Santa so much -- that the book I have coming out in October -- My New Crush Gave to Me -- centers around a Secret Santa drawing.While there's no theater tour in the book, that Christmas season will always stick with me -- the crazy gifts, the Christmas party, the inside jokes, the smiles, the pranks (like when we crossed paths with another tour group and snuck outside to decorate their van with Christmas paper, decorations and a Secret Santa gag gift or two), but most of all the friendships.And that's what I truly love about the holidays -- getting to share them with family and friends.I hope you all have a wonderful holiday!
A Christmas Memory: Danika Stone - yesterday
I started this Christmas post the day after Thanksgiving. In many places in the world, autumn is sunny and warm, the first hint of fall colours painting the trees in red and gold. Not in Canada. Here in so-called “sunny Southern Alberta”, this was the scene that greeted me when I woke up this morning.

A Year In The Life - 7 days ago
Confession: I'm a Gilmore Girl. Not just a fan, mind you. I live Gilmore Girls. I rewatch all the seasons at least once a year. I secretly want to be Lorelai's daughter and Rory's sister. Don't tell my mother.After Amy Sherman-Palladino left the show, I was heartbroken. The seventh season suffered because of it. Spelling the end of the series.For years I prayed for a movie. Begged the universe for closure. And it seemed I wasn't the only one because eight years later we got four new episodes that are all 90mins long. Basically, 4 movies that help sum up Lorelai's and Rory's stories.I was ecstatic when I first found out. I couldn't wait to watch all of them. And since they were coming from Netflix I knew we would get all four at once. So I patiently waited for November 25th.Now that it's here, I'm torn. I'm happy that I finally get the resolution I have been yearning for. And I'm sad because this is it. Four episodes. There's nothing more after.When the idea of a movie was just floating around in the ether there was still hope. I guess we all willed new episodes into existence.I just finished the first episode and it's beautiful. Check back with me in a few days. Yes, a few days. My mother insists we watch one a day. I agreed because I want the experience to last.So see you here at a later date and I'll tell you how I feel after I hear those four last words.What about you? Are you a fan? Have you watched all the episodes? No spoilers, please. If you're not a fan, is there a show you lament ending? Or is there a show you want more off? Let me know in the comments section.
