“A Christmas Snow” Special

Curl up on the couch this weekend with some hot chocolate and a holiday film.

Tune into The Vacation Channel, channel 6 on local stations, this coming Saturday and Sunday nights at 8 pm for the heart-warming holiday movie “A Christmas Snow.”

Then, check out a www.aChristmasSnow.com to print out a coupon for 10 dollars off the Branson stage performance! The live on-stage rendition of the movie will be performed throughout this holiday season at Branson’s Starlight theater. The play will star the original movie cast. Log onto the website for more information and showtimes.

Here is one viewer’s account of the movie: “AChristmas Snow is a must see movie that deals with the outward and inward problems we all experience in our daily lives. It is a fantastic story about life’s mistakes, forgiveness, self reflection, family and the inner working relationships of each of these areas. Not being a professional movie critic, but, dealing with my own life problems and those of many friends and family, I can honestly say that this is a life changing movie. Whether it changes your life for moments, hours, weeks, months or a lifetime, it WILL change your life.”

Happy Thanksgiving from Terry the Tour Guide!

In the midst of his very busy schedule here in Branson, Missouri,
Terry the Tour Guide set aside several minutes to explain to us why he is thankful this holiday season…

“I’m thankful as ‘Terry the Tour Guide’ that I live in a wonderful clean, safe town & I have been so blessed to work day & night for the last 32 years with amazing people.”

I’m thankful for my favorite Thanksgiving dish- my mother-in-law’s eggnog pie!
(Yum! We may have to make that in our TVC office one day!)

How about your favorite Thanksgiving day tradition, Terry?
 “It has always been when we’re all together as a family & this started with my mom, you had to be at her home for Thanksgiving!
After she passed away we have ALWAYS had it in our home for the whole family.”

Last, but not least, what is Terry’s favorite thing about being apart of Branson?
- It’s about family. Even if some people aren’t your real family, they feel like it.

One final “thank you” from Branson’s one and only Terry the Tour Guide…
Note from Terry
Happy Thanksgiving!
