If you’re like me, you don’t have just one favorite
Christmas Movie. What are your top selections?
My very favorite is White Christmas. I know Rudolph isn’t a movie but the Christmas season isn’t here until I see that.
I probably should have said “Christmas Videos” or “shows”, because I consider all of those classics… Rudolph, Grinch, Snoopy, etc., to be in that category, as well.
Chevy Chase – National Lampoons Christmas Vacation!!
Home Alone was another all time fav.
I have two main ones… “The Santa Clause” and “Christmas Vacation”. They are my wrapping/cleaning/whatever movies. Since I can repeat almost every word of dialogue along with both videos (and they STILL crack me up, even though I’ve seen them each about a billion times), I can do other things with them on in the background and know exactly what’s going on. One is just so spot-on with family stuff, and the other is just plain magic. Still. After all this time.
I like the original Grinch, too, although I do that mostly on CD in the truck with Josh. It’s a Wonderful Life. The Christmas Story (Patrick Stewart as Scrooge). The Nutcracker (live, if possible, although it’s been a hundred years for that)
And believe it or not, I don’t believe I’ve ever seen White Christmas all the way through. I’ve caught parts of it plenty of times, but never start to finish.
Shut up!! NEVER??? The way you love musicals! Make a point of it.
Believe this or not, I don’t like It’s a Wonderful Life and have never seen that the whole way through. It’s just too dark for me.
I watched it the other night when Paul was sleeping and I was wrapping. I have it on DVR and plan on watching it at least one more time.
I think we’ve watched it 3x already!
We love The Polar Express & The Santa Clause ones
Oh yes, I agree Polar Express is really good too.
I’ve only seen that a couple of times. I’d like to watch it again.
Charlie Brown Christmas would have to be up there on the list.
That’s another one I love. I love the innocence of those older ones.
I think my favorites are It’s a Wonderful Life and A Christmas Story.
I enjoy ALL the Christmas movies mentioned as well as a few from my “growing up” years that aren’t played anymore more even on pbs. Those would be the original “The Bishop’s Wife”, (which had Cary Grant as the visiting angel), and Bing Crosby as Father O’Malley in both the “Bells of St. Mary’s” . Also, the original “We’re No Angels” which had Humphrey Bogart and was set at Christmas time, which.I only caught twice years ago but really, really enjoyed. I wonder if these are available on YouTube. Think I’ll have to check it out this week.
Aw, heck, it won’t let me post my comment, keeps coming up page not available. I’ve had a lot of problems with this lately. That’s why you haven’t seen so much of me. Drat!
The Bells of St. Mary’s is a Christmas movie? I haven’t seen it since I was a kid, but I know that’s one that I must have my kids see sometime soon.
I haven’t seen the Bells of St. Mary’s in years and years. I’d love to see it again.
Ok, it finally worked.
I LOVE White Christmas 🙂 And the Santa Clause movies and Elf. I’ve never seen It’s a Wonderful Life all the way through either for the same reason as Joy. I also have never seen Miracle on 34th Street all the way through. I like Polar Express b/c it’s a good story, but I don’t like how they try and make it look real but still cartoonish. Does that make sense?!
Do you have The Polar Express?? Could I borrow it??
Yes we do and yes you can!
I like how they did that with the Polar Express. We have it Joy, if you want to borrow it. If Hunter will let it go for a couple days LOL
I could do a Direct TV search for it too and see if I can DVR it. Thanks Jenny. Maybe I will if I can’t find it.
I also disliked the Polar Express movie. My kids like it, though (though last year, Miss A found it too crazy). We have the book and have done the train ride. The story is OK, but the movie is too weird for me.
The Polar Express is one we always watch, along with A Christmas Story. I also really like Miracle on 34th. Elf is cute! National Lampoons Christmas is a big hit with Jason and Bailey.
