Let's talk . . . holiday movies . . . for a minute.
Are you a fan? Do you fill your December with holiday movie viewing? Or do you (like me) live with a holiday-movie-bah-humbug who has little tolerance for that type of thing?
Last week, I found a downloadable list of Christmas movies (note that the list also indicates information about where you can stream the movie this month), and I thought it might be a fun list to share. (The original list is here. I found this link rabbit-holing from somewhere else . . . probably from someone's IG story or something. You know how that goes. . . )
It seems a fairly comprehensive list to me.
I have seen most of these movies (or portions of them) over the years, although there are a few I've never heard of before, and a couple I don't usually associate with "holiday movie" (Little Women, for example, and probably While You Were Sleeping . . . although I do get the connection). When the kids were little, we watched a lot of these, but not since. (And I'm fine with never seeing Elf again in my life.) We used to have a big family tradition of watching The Muppet Christmas Carol on Thanksgiving evening. But, like so many good rituals, eventually it became chore-instead-of-fun and we let it go. My sister and I have always had a fondness for White Christmas (that Sisters song has always been a big hit with us. . . ). I can quote dialog from A Christmas Story. And even Tom likes Love, Actually. (But don't get him started on It's a Wonderful Life.)
Here's my list of go-to holiday movies . . .
How about YOU? What holiday movies are you most excited about watching each year? (And is anything you like missing from this list?)
