Are you a fan of Anne Shirley?  If so, you will be excited to hear that on September 23rd, PBS will be airing  ANNE OF GREEN GABLES – FIRE AND DEW.  If you can't wait until the 23rd, you can pre-order it on DVD or digital and watch beginning tomorrow, September 18th. :-)

Growing up, I used to love watching Anne of Green Gables on PBS with my mom.  While my brothers were out with my dad, we would have girls night in and do a spa night, and then pop some popcorn or bake cookies, and then settle in on the couch to watch an episode of this popular series, which has been remade over the years into different movies and television series -- all of which are good.  I remember my grandmother gave me a box set of the books as a birthday gift one year, and I spent the summer reading all the books, and then watching the episodes I had recorded on VHS to watch and compare the book to the television series. 

And, now that I have a family of my own, I love being able to watch Anne of Green Gables with my girls, and seeing them get into it.  Because my youngest wants to be a teacher, she really enjoy this series, and likes that Anne Shirley is pursuing a teaching path.

Even though I don't live at home anymore, I still love watching these special television installments and movies with my mom.  Either we will be talking on the phone while watching it, or will talk shortly thereafter about our favorite parts and how this one compared to other Anne of Green Gables movies we have seen over the years.  And, come the holidays when my parents come to stay for a few days, I will pull out my Anne of Green Gables DVD collection, and we will pop some popcorn and watch them together just like old times.

I really enjoyed the ANNE OF GREEN GABLES – FIRE AND DEW, which is the third installment in the series, and can't wait for you all to see it when it airs on PBS on Sept. 23rd, or when you get your DVDs or digital version tomorrow to watch. I have to say that this installment is my favorite, and one that I can't wait to watch again.
