Top 5 Holiday Movies & Quotes

You know those big, comfy sweaters that are so trendy right now? Well, what's more perfect during the holidays than cozying up in one while watching one of your favorite Christmas movies? Here's a list of our Top 5 Christmas movies here at Sage and our favorite quote from each of the movies: 

1. Elf - If you don't like Elf, you must be the Grinch. Elf can make anyone, anywhere, in any spirit (whether you celebrate Christmas or not), LOL. 

"First we'll make snow angels for two hours, then we'll go ice skating, then we'll eat a whole roll of Tollhouse Cookie-dough as fast as we can, and then we'll snuggle." 
-Buddy the Elf

2. Miracle on 34th StreetWhenever you need a reminder of the true spirit of Christmas, this movie is a go-to. It's a fantastic family-favorite.

"Oh, Christmas isn't just a day, it's a frame of mind... and that's what's been changing. That's why I'm glad I'm here, maybe I can do something about it." -Kris Kringle

3. Love, Actually - We might not admit it, but we all love a feel-good romantic comedy. Love, Actually will make you laugh, it'll make you cry, and it'll get you right into the Christmas spirit. Plus, Hugh Grant is in it - enough said.

"I feel it in my fingers, I feel it in my toes, Christmas is all around me, and so the feeling grows..." -Love, Actually Soundtrack

4. A Christmas StorySaying that this movie is a classic is an understatement. Kids and adults alike, if they have seen this movie, all have a special place in their hearts for little Ralphie.

Quote: "Some men are Baptists, others Catholics; my father was an Oldsmobile man." - Ralphie

5. A Charlie Brown Christmas - This is for those who are kids, have kids, or are still a kid at heart. Morning, afternoon, or night, this cartoon movie will lift your holiday spirits. 

"Wake up! Santa Clause came last night, and he didn't leave you anything!....APRIL FOOLS!" -Sally

Pop one of these movies in and you're sure to enjoy!!
HAPPY HOLIDAYS from your friends at Sage!!

Holiday Party Do's and Don'ts

Holiday season has arrived which means lots of holiday parties. Here's a list of do's and dont's to keep in mind no matter if you are the host or the guest.

~DO stand out in the crowd
~DO NOT overdo it

Dress appropriately. For a holiday party, sequins or a fun color are imperative-just don't go overboard...

~DO make a cocktail concoction that your guests are sure to love
~DO NOT  drink so much that you forget who your guests are
When playing holiday hostess, be sure to keep the beverages plentiful-just don't overindulge.

~DO get on the dance floor even if you don't have rhythm 
~DO NOT bust out the running man, the sprinkler, or any other 80's moves
Dance like no one is watching-just don't get so crazy that everyone watches.

~DO encourage your guests to bring gifts for a Santa swap/gift exchange
~DO NOT flip out when the gift you receive is not up to your standard
Santa swaps are always a holiday hit-just don't turn into the Grinch.

Follow these few guidelines and you're sure to be a fabulous hit at any holiday party!

Happy Holidays from all your friends at Sage!!

Santa Days at Sage!

Unwrap the magic of the holidays at Sage and play Santa to a child in need of some extra magic this season! It's that time of year again when we at Sage collect toys to take to the Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta to help bring a smile to a child’s face. Last year we collected over 150 toys!! 

At Children’s, their goal is to ‘enhance the lives of children through excellence in patient care, research and education’. Whether they are treating an injured toddler or supporting a teen through a series of chemotherapy treatments, they take their commitment to care for each and every child very seriously.

The toys that we deliver are taken to a special section of the Children’s hospital-The Zone. In The Zone, children, teenagers and their families can relax, watch a movie or play video games. It was created to help these children, teenagers and their families forget-at least for a little while-they are at a hospital. 

This year, we will be collecting unwrapped toys from November 7-December 19th. The toys will be delivered to the Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta on December 20th. Toys can be donated at our Buckhead and Forsyth locations. Happy Holidays from Sage!!
