It is one week until Christmas! Time to curl up and watch some Christmas movies. I made a list of my favorites movies. Check them out!
It’s A Wonderful Life: This is by far my favorite Christmas movie. People need to be reminded how beautiful life is and how easy it is to take advantage of it. Despite hardships and challenges, there are people who care for you—“No man is a failure who has friends.”
White Christmas: I have been watching White Christmas every year since I can remember. It is a family tradition to watch this movie together and for my sister and I to get up dancing and singing to “Sisters”
Elf: SANTA! OH MY GOD! SANTA’S COMING! I KNOW HIM! I KNOW HIM! Easily the most quotable Christmas movie.
The Santa Claus: This movie basically explained all my Santa questions when I was a child. Now I pick up on Tim Allen’s jokes…
A Christmas Story: I truly appreciate the internal monologue of witty banter Ralphie has recalling his childhood Christmas memories.
A Charlie Brown Christmas: My mother gets such a kick out of the Peanuts gang, especially Snoopy. My favorite part is of course when Linus explains the true meaning of Christmas.
Dr. Seuss’s How the Grinch Stole Christmas (2000): This remake of Dr. Seuss’s book cracks me up. Jim Carey nailed it.
The Family Stone: Killer cast who gang up against SJP. Plus, it has my favorite Christmas song—Judy Garland’s “Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas” Tearjerker movie for sure.
The Holiday: I get to gawk at Jude Law and wish I had Cameron Diaz’s hair.
A Christmas Carol (1984): This is my Dad’s favorite movie and I always enjoy cuddling up on the couch and watching it with him. God bless us, every one.
Miracle on 34th Street (1947): “Christmas isn’t just a day, it’s a frame of mind.” By far my favorite movie quote, it states exactly why I love this holiday.
Love Actually: The various romantic storylines pull my heartstrings and Hugh Grant’s dance scene never fails to make me laugh.
The Muppet Christmas Carol: Got the message across when I was younger and still one of my favorites.
National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation: Classic story of family members coming together for the holidays and all hell breaks loose.
Eloise at Christmas Time: Little girl obsessed with Christmas and living in the Plaza with Julia Andrews as her nanny, enough said.
Rudolph the Red Nose Reindeer: A Christmas classic with memorable characters.
The Polar Express: This movie didn’t come out until I was a bit older, but I loved the book as a child.
How the Grinch Stole Christmas! (1966): My favorite Dr. Seuss book for sure!
Home Alone 2 Lost in New York: What better city to be in at Christmas time?
The Santa Clause 2: Time for Santa to find the Mrs.!
Santa Claus is Coming to Town: Another Christmas classic that also answered my questions about Santa when I was a child.
The Nutcracker (1993): I took ballet as a girl and did a production of The Nutcracker, so of course I loved the movie!
Mickey’s Christmas Carol: Because nothing is funnier than Scrooge talking like Donald Duck.
Christmas in Connecticut: A very merry mix up for Ms. Lane proves to be entertaining.
