It's a wonderful life. Every year Christmas eve. Part of the tradition and exemplifies the ultimate life experience.


White Christmas and National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation.


I just love A Christmas Story. Have to watch it every year!


The Sound of Music - every year since I can remember it is on national TV and cinemas around town at Christmas. Great story, loads of kids, fantastic music... somehow it feels cozy and warm and christmasy. It's a Wonderful Life - obvious. My kids love them too.

Love, Actually. National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation. And with the kids I love Elf, Grinch and Charlie Brown. For some reason I cannot stand "It's a Wonderful Life" I know, I lack a heart or soul or something.


A Charlie Brown Christmas, the Ref, and While You Were Sleeping.


I feel like Christmas is not complete unless I've watched A Charlie Brown Christmas. I will also admit to watching Bad Santa a lot. It's so inappropriate but the twisted humor gives me an opportunity to de-stress and laugh. Something that i personally cherish during this uber-stressful time of year.

About Me

  • Carmen Staicer is a whirlwind of energy and execution, who never sleeps and drinks way too much coffee. She works from home as Social Media Programs Manager for SheKnows, and is the mom to six kids, most of whom play instruments, sing or dance and all of whom are much smarter than she will ever be. In other words, her house is never ever quiet or still. A concentration of asthma, food allergies, spectrum disorders and learning disabilities means that she spends an awful lot of time second guessing herself and Dr. Googling, as well as learning to cook everything the family might like to eat. In her spare time, she enjoys reading, boxing (she has her Black Belt in Muay Thai), sleeping, exploring coffee shops, photography, ballet class and cooking. She excels in being a smart mouth and has her major in sarcasm, with a dual minor in BS studies and avoiding laundry.
