All Time Favorite Christmas Movies

There are so many Christmas movies out there, and I love a lot of them. Lets face it’s a great it’s a great subject, and I enjoy all the different takes on the season, but there are only a few movies that are a MUST watch this time of year, so here they are my six favs, will you join me for the countdown?

No. 6 Santa Clause the Movie: not to be confused with The Santa Clause, I’m talking Dudley Moore NOT Tim Allen. This was my childhood favorite, I’ve never seen a North Pole so magical it still makes me giddy:)

No. 5 The Family Man: I’ll love Nicolas Cage forever because of this role. An endearing story of past and present, and all that’s important in life.

No. 4: Little Women: An affectionate story about sisters, growing up, highs and lows. They had me at sisters, but add victorian scenery and fashion and I’m sold!

No. 3: The Holiday: A realistic observation of England vs. America, and the charm of both. Add a romantic Jude Law, and to die for set design, and you’ve made me a classic.

No.2 Elf: Hilarious, Movies don’t get much funnier than this. I’ll watch it any time of the year when I need a good giggle.

No 1. The Muppet Christmas Carol: Our Families all time Classic, is the twist on the old classic. Dicken’s story told true, with the humor of the Muppets. I’m not kidding when I say I’ve seen grown men cry watching this. The music with tug on your heart strings, it’s a goodie!

There you go, that’s my countdown…and I’m realizing there’s so many more I LOVE (Home Alone…hello!). I’m sure we have some faves in common, but have your own too. Now go snuggle up by your tree and turn on a good flick!

    You have some of our favorites on your list. I don’t believe I’ve seen Dudley Moore as Santa though. I’ll have to check it out. I absolutely agree with Muppet Christmas Carol. It’s a holiday tradition in our house too. It just rings so true to the heart of Dickens while retaining the humor and charm of Henson’s Muppets. :) In addition to many movies on your holiday list, we also enjoy Miracle on 34th Street, White Christmas, and It’s a Wonderful Life.

    “the muppets christmas carol” is our number one too. :) plus, “the holiday” is another fave of course. there’s a new-to-me movie called “metropolitan” that i saw last year that is really fun. the holidays aren’t super prominent in the film but i really like it.
