My 8 Favorite Christmas Movies

One of the many great things about the holidays is curling up with some hot cocoa and watching those
special movies that you only watch at this time of the year. The show
up on TV like old friends, and even though you’ve seen them a million
times you still look forward to watching them a million more.
Everyone has their favorites, and here are mine:
(Why 8? Because it’s my blog and that’s all I felt like
coming up with. True story.) 

It’s a Wonderful Life: This is not
only one of my favorite Christmas movies, but just one of my
favorite movies ever. Yes, it’s long and yes it’s cliché, but it’s
also amazing. If you haven’t watched it in awhile, do yourself a
favor and watch it this year. It’s one of the few movies that can
make me tear up, and the moral of the story is as true now as it was
then—no man is a failure that has friends!

Elf: I love this movie, and I
think many people would agree with me that it’s a (albeit newer)
holiday classic. Will Ferrel is perfect as Buddy the Elf, and there
are so many great lines all throughout the movie—the best way to
spread Christmas cheer is singing loud for all to hear!

Christmas Vacation: Another funny
one that my husband’s family just loves to quote. There are so many
classic scenes in this movie, it never gets old.

The Holiday: I just watched this
the other night, and this movie just makes me happy. It’s a great
rom-com for anytime of the year, but it’s especially fun to watch at
Christmas. I love Kate Winslet’s storyline with her neighbor, so

Miracle on 34th Street:
While I don’t mind the remake of this movie, I much prefer the
original. It’s so classic and just makes you feel warm and fuzzy

Love Actually: Another holiday
rom-com. I actually didn’t really care for this movie the first time
I saw it, but after a few more viewings it really grew on me and now
I love it. I really like how all the different story lines weave
together and demonstrate different kinds of love because that’s
really what Christmas is all about.

White Christmas: Singing. Dancing.
Snow. Christmas music. Bing Crosby. What more do you need for a
perfect Christmas film?  
A Charlie Brown Christmas: Cam and I
watched this on TV a few weeks ago, and then I just recently bought
the CD/DVD set at Starbucks. I always feel bad
because everyone is so mean to Charlie Brown, but it all works out
in the end. 
What about you? What are some of your must-watch holiday movies each year? I’d love to hear!
Ok kiddies, that’s all for me! See y’all tomorrow, I’ve got two
recipes you don’t want to miss! Xoxo
