My Favorite Christmas Movies

December 6, 2014

Oh, the holiday season is upon us and one of my favorite things to do when wrapping Christmas presents is to watch holiday movies. I know everyone has their own personal favorites and there are plenty of newspapers and magazines that have lists… some of those I like, some I don’t. For example, I know many people think It’s a Wonderful Life is one of the best ever. Now I love Jimmy Stewart as much as the next person, but it doesn’t make my list. These are the movies that I usually watch some point each December. Mostly while wrapping presents, but sometimes curled up on a rainy weekend (like today) or after opening the presents. Just depends.

some of my fave holiday movies!

some of my fave holiday movies!

  • White Christmas– I saw it for the first time in 5th grade and loved it because of the singing and dancing. It is probably my all time favorite Christmas movie.
  • The Family Stone– This has been a favorite since I saw it in the theater.  It is surprising that I like it so much because (Spoiler Alert), Diane Keaton’s character dies. I HATE it when people die in movies (well, not action movies, that is okay). But I love the ensemble cast, THAT HOUSE and the funny scene in the kitchen on Christmas morning.
  • The Holiday– This movie makes we want to visit England in winter and we all know I don’t love winter. I love the movie, but I especially love the music! Such a good score.
  • Home Alone– One of my favorite movies from when I was a kid. I totally remember seeing it in theater!
  • Little Women– The 1994 version. Loved the story, love the 1860s set, loved it all. Oh, and the Orchard House instrumental is totally on my playlist. I just fast forward through that part where Beth dies.
  • The Chronicles of Narnia– All three movies that have come out, even though only the first one has a Christmas scene in it. Love these and wish they would make the rest!
  • The Wizard of Oz– Okay, really it is my all-time favorite movie and just watch it anytime 🙂

There are some others I like: the Santa Clause, Santa Clause(1985) and couple of cute Lifetime or Hallmark movies. Those are more that I will watch them if they are on, not that I have to see them. What are your favorite Christmas movies?
