REVIEW:
This is fun to read for dates that are important to know, what time of year is the best time to buy certain items, and even some history tidbits thrown in. These things put together help you get the best out of the year. Need to buy a lawnmower? This book will tell you the best time of year to get that lawnmower. (Just an example, may not be an exact noted thing in the book.) How handy is that information though?! Especially to homeowners. 
I am glad I had this book. I bought things at the right time, like jeans. Who knew they are cheaper at certain times of the year?! This almanac did, that's who!
So I urge you to check out the 2014 version. It is more geared to Americans,their history and sales and such, but is beneficial all around really.

REVIEW:
Such great animation!
There was always something going on in this movie. Even though it was a story I have seen played out a million times and a million different ways, they all are different too. This had more of a story. It was very magical and is definitely fun for the whole family.
Want to point out, Max, the dog, stole the show for me. He is so adorable, even if animation. Such a good dog.
This is one of those Christmas movies that you really can enjoy all year round. It has enough laughs, fun and morals to be played anytime. Plus there is nothing wrong with Christmas cheer in February.

It was so much fun to do! It was super cool to watch the tinsel levitate too! Then we sat to watch the movie.
What a good movie for the whole family! It was filled with action and adventure. Plus the story line was what I appreciated most.
The hubby had lots to say about this one. He was happiest that the film focused on one of the original Spider-man nemesis', Mysterio. He is one of the best Ma…
