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!
