Kelly Parra Shares Her Favorite Holiday Movie

For our final young adult author's favorite holiday movie, I put our own Kelly Parra in the hot seat. What say you, Kelly?

"My favorite Christmas movie," she tells us, "is none other than Rudolph, the Red-Nosed Reindeer.


"Why? Because it brings me back to my days as a kid, watching it every Christmas Holiday, and still it plays today! I was curious and did a little research...

Release date? 1964!

Before my time, definitely before my kids', and yet it's a heart-warming classic, with a cute reindeer embarrassed by his red nose, a jolly Santa, and a kind of awkward and unforgettable Abominable Snowman."

Definitely a personal favorite in our house, but I think I get a little more nostalgic about the movie than anyone else in my family."

I love that one, too, Kelly! And we'd love our readers to weigh in on Ruldolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer or any other favorite holiday movies, as we come to the end of our (very fun) month of hearing some of the favorite movies of our favorite authors.

That is my favorite childhood Christmas program as well! Although it was bumped to number two when The Muppet Christmas Carol came out almost 20 years ago. That movie has both adult and childhood sentimental attachments.

Oh, yes, L. Diane, The Muppet Christmas Carol is fun, too! Thanks for mentioning that!

We watch Rudolph every year. But I think my favorite is still "A Christmas Story." Either that or "Elf."

Oh, we do adore this one. We made a puppet theatre for small one for Christmas, and this has been a storyline we return to again and again - only since we don't have a reindeer puppet, the part of Rudolph is played by an unfortunate seal with a giant blue ball sewn to his nose.

Rudolph the blue-nosed seal...had a very blue nose...

Ok, we admit to being an odd family!
