The Christmas season is upon us!
I thought I was just half way in the spirit.
But then I realized, It’s only December 3rd and
I’ve watched all my favorite Christmas movies already this year!
I’m a sucker for the classics so I thought I’d share a few of my favorites with you.
1. White Christmas
If this isn’t the classic of all classics, then I don’t know what is. Best of all? It’s now on Netflix! Between Bing Crosby setting the standard for all Christmas songs of the future, Danny Kaye making you wonder why your beau won’t dance like that with you, staring and Rosemary Clooney and trying to figure out if George looks anything like her, and marveling at the complete ridiculousness that is Vera Ellen’s tiny waist, this movie is sure to warm your heart and thoroughly amuse. It’s my favorite, hands down.
2. Miracle on 34th Street (1947)
I watch this at least twice every holiday season. And yes, they “digitally remastered” it and added color, but you have to watch the black and white version. It’s a must. Only recently did I see the re-make of this with the girl from Matilda. It wasn’t quite as charming.
Duh. It’s hilarious.
But you already know that.
4. Die Hard
You and I both know that the only reason I watched this is because Naveed made me. Crazy action movies are not my cup of tea. I also firmly believed that this was not a Christmas movie. After re-watching it this year, I’ve changed my tune. It’s a great movie and it’s worth a watch if you are trying to get in the spirit and your beau won’t go for the oldies. Plus you get to see Professor Snape in his original bad guy role.
Yippie-ki-yay…moving right along…
5. National Lampoons Christmas Vacation
I’m not a huge fan of all of the Vacation movies. This one stands alone as a Christmas classic. The Griswold’s screwy family will make you feel a little bit better about your own. I also genuinely hope that my future husband does this to our house someday. You can never be too into the Christmas spirit, can you?
6. The Muppet Christmas Carol
No other version is worth watching. This version includes un-scary ghosts of Christmas (a must for my fellow wusses), fantastic songs, and KERMIT. It’s sweet and the message of the original story isn’t lost.
I’m going to leave my list at an awkward 6.
Cause that’s just how I roll.
Can you add a few others that I should see?
Since I’ve already watched all my faves,
I’d love some others to keep me on my Christmas kick.
Plus I need the cheering up since I just cracked the screen on my iPhone.
