December 1st marks the official beginning of the Christmas Movie Watching season. I’m not going to lie, I started in mid November!
I want to take a look back as some of my favorites.
These are in no particular order. I am saving my favorite for the end, however.
Miracle On 34th Street usually kicks off my binge watching season.
Along with A Christmas Carol, Holiday Inn and White Christmas.
It’s never really Christmas without Bing Crosby.
Rudolf and Charlie Brown will always be dear to my heart.
The Land of Unwanted Toys and Charlie’s pitiful Christmas tree showed me love can make anything possible.
Newer classics are a must as well.
We can all identify with the Griswalds attempt at the perfect Christmas Vacation.
I love the Grinch. From the cartoon to Jim Carrey’s perfect rendition.
Jingle Jangle and Elf bring me so much joy. Sometimes we need a little magic to spark our Christmas Spirit.
I get my yearly reminder that it’s A Wonderful Life.
Jimmy Stewart is my all time favorite actor and this I my favorite of all his movies.
My most beloved movie is A Christmas Story.
From as far back as I can remember, this movie has been a family tradition.
As a child, as a mother and now as a grandmother, we play this movie for 24 hours on Christmas Eve and Christmas Day. And nobody is allowed to touch the remote. NOT A FINGER!!
I love the occasional sappy, Hallmark holiday movie. But these classics will always be part of my Christmas.
