Favorite Things: Christmas Movies

Merry Christmas Eve everyone!

Christmas movies are some of my favorite things about the season. My family and I have our favorites that are staples in our household from the day after Thanksgiving all the way to the big day itself. So get your popcorn popped and twizzlers opened, because here are the movies that make the top of my list each year!


Holiday Inn: My favorite holiday movie of all time! Best songs, best actors, best all the things! I heart Irving Berlin.

The Santa Clause: This is probably one of the longest running traditions we have in our household. My sister and I know every word and have quote-a-longs each year.

Elf: Just so funny. And can we all agree it's the best version of Baby It's Cold Outside there is?

The Holiday: This has a sentimental place in my heart because it's the first movie Dan and I saw in theaters together...9 years ago on our first date!

Home Alone: Another classic that made me want to booby trap everything as a kid.

Christmas with the Kranks: This is up there with The Santa Clause - such a quotable and fun-loving movie. One of my mom's favorites.

White Christmas: Funnily enough, the most recognizable song from Holiday Inn is the namesake of this movie. It's another classic that is paired so well with Holiday Inn and Miracle on 34th Street.

Dr. Seuss' How the Grinch Stole Christmas *original only please: Such a fun book and cartoon. It's one of those I have to have on while decorating or baking. And I just love Boris Karloff's voice. Best.Narrator.Ever.

Miracle on 34th Street *original only please: This is a great one to pop on right after Thanksgiving! Because Macy's amirite?

Honorable Mentions:
It's a Wonderful Life
Love Actually
Christmas Vacation
Frozen

As you can tell, we are a big movie family. My dad is a huge old hollywood buff and can name directors, producers, actors, 2nd cousins of actors, and the list goes on. Many of these movies are some of my favorite just because he tells us the history and awesome behind the scene stories.
