Stephanie Hale's Favorite Holiday Movie/Giveaway

Our good friend, Stephanie Hale, the author of the Aspen Brooks series, and the upcoming, The Alpha Bet, was kind enough to weigh in with us about her favorite holiday movie: The Family Stone.


“The movie I have found myself watching at Christmas the last few years is The Family Stone," says Steph. "It isn't really a 'holiday' movie but does take place at Christmas. Who doesn't look forward to spending the holidays with family only to have them driving you crazy five minutes later? It is my dream to write an adult novel someday that touches on the complexities of family so perfectly like this movie does. If you haven't seen this movie, I highly recommend it!”

Steph has been kind enough to offer up a signed copy of the third in her Aspen Brooks series, Spring Breakup,


which is of course about a holiday, just not the season we’re presently in. In order to be entered in her contest, simply tell us your favorite holiday. The winner will be announced on Monday!

My favorite holiday is 4th of July because that's when my entire family gets together for a parade and picnic. It's the only time of year we can all be together.

Amy stole my thunder!!! The 4th of July has long been my favorite holiday. Whether you're at the beach, the lake, or just hanging around the backyard with family and friends, it just can't be beat!

My favorite holiday is Christmas! The celebration of the birth of Christ, the twinkling lights, the fresh snow, sleigh rides, carols, gift giving and service, homemade candy and being with the ones you love :)

I love the 4th of July too. It's a nice day to picnic or go to the beach and follow it up with fireworks.

I don't think I weighed in, but I rather like Labor Day...fall's rolling in, and I'm thinking sweaters and jeans again.

I'm a Halloween kid. I adore it. I have my own decorations so I can go all out in my dorm room. I have lights, a spider web, and a tombstone. LOVE it!
