Favourite Christmas Movies

Happy Tuesday, everybody!

~~

Recently, I've been thinking about whether to continue blogging. The reasons for me are mostly due to privacy, but nothing has been set in stone yet! The one good thing with having a blog on Wordpress is it allows you to make your blog private for followers, similar to Instagram and Twitter. I've really been enjoying blogging, and with Christmas time coming up, it makes everything that much more exciting! So it seems a bit counter-productive to get rid of it all now. But it is something I have been contemplating (unless this is all just a phase?) I'll do my best to keep you guys posted though!

For today, I thought I'd share with you my favourite Christmas movies that are a must I have to watch every year. I bet you'll find we have a lotta similar tastes (I pretty much like the classics!) so hope you enjoy and can relate a bit!

Home Alone 1 & 2

Both, together, are a must for me every Christmas :) They play it non-stop on TV and I can't help myself, even if I just watched it the night before.

The Santa Clause

I never got into the sequels but the original is a classic for me. This was during Tim Allen's Home Improvement days (a guilty pleasure of mine as a kid) and you'll notice even as Santa, he makes a few "references" in ode to his Tool Time show.

How the Grinch Stole Christmas

Jim Carrey as the hilarious, gloomy Grinch? Yes, please! (Plus his dog, Max is a show-star as his substitute reindeer).

The Muppet Christmas Carol

I think I saw this movie with my cousin when it first came out in 1992. I don't remember much of that, but when I got it on video, I watched it over and over again leading up to the Christmas season. What can I say: it's the Muppets, and they're hilarious! Michael Caine plays the star character of Scrooge.

Christmas Vacation

How many of you can relate to the Griswold family? Does stapling Christmas lights to the roof actually work? (Seems like the easy way out, doesn't it?) This movie has me laughing, from the beginning when they're searching the blizzard fields for the perfect tree to the end when the family all comes together to enjoy the brightest lit house on the block.

Elf

Will Farrell as the hilarious elf, Buddy? Enough said!

Miracle On 34th Street (1994 version)

I always thought this movie was a bit magical. Maybe because it takes place in New York during Christmas time, which is on a bucket list of mine? I always loved the cozy space of the Manhattan apartments, too :)

It's A Wonderful Life

"Every time a bell rings, an angel gets its wings!"

Now here's a question for guys:

Does Die Hard (the first movie, only) count as a Christmas movie?

(The reason I ask is because Brian has this on-going debate that it is. I beg to differ a bit :) )

What are some of your favourite Christmas movies this season?
