My Nominations for the Top 3 Monthly Contest for December

in #yourtop33 years ago (edited)

This is my entry into this month’s Top 3 contest.

This months topic is Holiday Movies

Nomination 1

The Polar Express

This movie has been a tradition of ours on Christmas Tree Day. This is when we put up our tree and all our decorations and have a lovely stew. We started this tradition when I was really young and we have maintained it ever since. It is my favourite Christmas movie of all time. It has a brilliant soundtrack which has my favourite festive song 'When Christmas Comes to Town'.

One of the three main characters, Billy, struggles with finding joy and happiness at Christmas time because 'Christmas just doesn't work out for me'. Which I find really sad. The movie takes you on a magical journey to the North Pole, collecting children along the way who are finding it hard to maintain their belief in the 'big guy', whilst drinking hot, hot, hot, hot chocolate!!

Overall, The Polar Express is a great family movie for all ages and definitely brings the magic of Christmas to your home.

Nomination 2


Where to start! Gremlins is definitely a different kind of Christmas movie and not your usual festive offering. Although it is a bit cheesy, the acting is great which really highlights the creativity in the storyline.

Gremlins is about a boy, also named Billy (weird!), who receives a Mogwai for an early Christmas present from his father. The creature comes with three very important rules; One, 'keep him away from the light, especially sunlight, it will kill him.', Two, 'Don't get him wet.', Three, 'Never feed him after midnight.' otherwise this can lead to an apocalypse of small green beasts. Spoiler Alert!! 😁

My favourite scene is in the bar where the Gremlins gather round for lots of beer, games and mischievous behavior after a hard day at work, replicating!

It was the dispute about Gremlins rating that made the film industry create PG-13. Clearly you can see that it shouldn't be for little children. It's still a great family film for children that are older

Nomination 3


This is probably not for younger viewers either despite the fact that my dad has made me watch it from a young age!! Thanks dad. In our house, it has always been a tradition to watch Scrooged on Christmas Eve.

Scrooged is based on the Charles Dickens novel, A Christmas Carol but with a modern twist. Frank, a rich, mean, TV executive, is told that he will be visited by three ghosts on Christmas Eve. Each ghost torments and abuses him, whilst making their overall point of becoming more generous, kind and giving. An example of this would be visiting his brother and spending time with him instead of sending him a towel as a present.

Bill Murray! What a great actor and comedian. There is no one better for the role than him.

I hope you have enjoyed my choices and good luck to all that enter the contest this month.

Love them all! I can just see you all putting up the tree and enjoying those wonderful traditions. It really is what the season is all about. Too funny about the double "Billy" characters, too. It's been so long since I've seen Polar Express or Gremlins that I had forgotten. Gremlins really is a classic. That is probably one of my favorite scenes, too. I think these all will be some solid ones for the dpoll! Good luck. :)

Thanks for these awesome suggestions for our contest this month! We've given you an upvote and logged your nominations, ready for the dpoll - keep an eye on our blog for the dpoll post!

Set your post payout to 50/50. You keep the SP and then transfer the STEEM and/or SBD (whichever is paid out at the time) to @yourtop3 with a link to your blog post entry in the transfer memo. This is the minimum entry fee, but you can add as much as you like to it! The more you add, the more you can win.There is no maximum entry fee.

Not sure how to find your post payout? Look in your Steem Wallet under Author Rewards to find the exact payout for your post. In the example below you would send the 0.014 SBD and 6.587 STEEM over to the @yourtop3 account as your entry fee. We’ll take it from there and convert all of the prize pool to SBD for easy prize distribution at the end of the month!


I think we all always enjoy the choices you make each month! Enjoy all the rest of the holiday traditions and good luck in the dpoll!

Great selections here mini-Baker! Polar Express seems to be following me around at the moment as it came up as an answer in last night's pub quiz. Although our team finished joint last, I made sure we got us our point by naming Polar Express!

Scrooged is a popular one this month too and Gremlins is a great shout, definitely stretching the realms of "kids Christmas movies" there but all good ones nonetheless! A few dark horses in there, could make for interesting results in the dpoll!

Awesome! Thanks for sending over your entry fee, just letting you know that I've added your nominations now!

Good luck and keep your eyes peeled for results post shortly! We're hoping to get this one out before Christmas :)
