Tired of the usual Miracle on 34th Street and It’s a Wonderful Life, my Christmas season movie list is a little different than the rest...
Home for the Holidays
This movie is hysterical and completely sums up what a good old fashioned family is all about. It’s about avoiding sensitive issues until they erupt in a mountain of curse words over the holiday table.
Released in 1942, this movie was the first to feature the song, "White Christmas" in all of its original black and white glory. The story is so much better than that other movie, White Christmas, released in (ick) color in 1954.
My husband insists this is a Christmas movie. Well, there is snow in it...
The soundtrack to my Christmas, this musical defines my holiday season.
The Muppet Christmas Carol
Another lively musical with songs you don’t mind getting stuck in your head. Oh, the kids seem to like it too!
The Nightmare Before Christmas
Who doesn't like Tim Burton? This film is pretty much played in our house from Halloween straight through to Christmas.
I can’t get enough of this movie which features a lovely assortment of celebs who are convincing and the story quite magical. This is the only movie in which I can stand Hugh Grant, who of course plays some rich guy who ensnares the heart of a girl considered way beneath him.
What movies do you like to watch during the holidays? Break from tradition!
