One thing that our family LOVES to do during the holidays is
curl up on the couch
with a giant tub of popcorn
& watch MOVIES!
There are several channels that devote their air time to HOLIDAY themed movies & shows the entire month of December & we LOVE that...
but, some Christmas movies are meant to be seen
commercial interruption! ;)
Here are our top FIVE Christmas movies
that we watch every year as a family...
it's just not Christmas if we haven't watched it yet!
#1. Home Alone...
Without a doubt,
it is just not Christmas without this movie!!
This one is a true family favorite!
#2. National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation
We have this one on DVD...
but the TV version is better because they cut out most of the bad language.
I cannot imagine Christmas without Chevy Chase...EVER!
#3. It's a Wonderful Life
Every year on Christmas day,
we do our gifts,
eat a big breakfast,
then Daddy P & I curl up on the couch
& watch this movie in our jammies
while the kids play with their toys...
it's my favorite tradtion!
#4. A Christmas Story
I admit, this one is not my most favorite...
but it's a family favorite &
I have great memories of it playing in the background
at my granny's house on Christmas Eve...
We Love, love, LOVE Will Ferrell...
If you have not seen this movie,
please make a point to watch it this holiday season...
it's WONDERFUL (& hilarious)!!
& 5 1/2 The Very First Noel
Awesome, awesome 30 minute cartoon
narrated by Andy Griffith.
It's a fabulous little children's movie!
I send it to school with my kids every year
so their teachers can borrow it...it's wonderful!
I also love these, but we don't normally watch them as a family.
Miracle on 34th Street...the original!
Scrooged, Bill Murray
Daddy P loves this one too...
Bill Murray at his finest!
It'll leave you singing...
"Put a little love in your heart"...
& I love that cheesy song! ;)
Another TRUE favorite!
I will watch this anytime I catch it on tv,
it's probably my favorite Nicholas Cage movie!
While You Were Sleeping
Cheesy, but I love it! ;)
Reece & Vince...
The Shop Around the Corner...
Love, so love!!
There are still a few that I want to see,
but haven't caught them on Turner Classic...
Christmas in Conneticut
Holiday Inn (gasp, I know)
It Happened on Fifth Avenue
and here's a GREAT list of Christmas related movies...
there are tons that I have not seen on that list!
What about you?
What are your favorites?
I am hunting for a way to store my old Christmas cards.
Most of the cards I have are PHOTOS of little people I love &
I cannot bring myself to throw them away...
but I have have bundles from years back!
I don't want to put them in an album.
Have you seen any cute crafts with old cards??
I'm hopping up here to get ready for a fun Cookie Swap with my girls...
Wishing y'all a beautiful Friday!!
