Christmas Movie Favorites

Thursday, December 12, 2013

As I am suggling up on this frigid NJ day on my day off watching Christmas movies, I figured it's a great time to share my favorite of all my favorites of Christmas movies. And also, because Chelsee and Christine are hosting Christmas in the Air. Remember my Newlywed gift guide?

I am a Christmas lover. Christmas obsessed. Whatever you want to call it. But I watch Christmas movies all year round. Basically, it's because I love the happiness and meaning of Christmas movies that I want to enjoy them all year. Not just for a month or two. My husband is very lucky I just keep that year round Christmas to just movies and music..

Enough rambling, I know you are dying to know my favorite Christmas movies.

1. It's a Wonderful Life

This movie is in black and white and is quite the classic. (do not even get me started on how upset I am about them making a colored version). It has one of the truest Christmas tales and what the meaning of Christmas is really about.

It became a tradition for me and my mom to watch this movie together whenever it was on. Getting this movie on VHS for a family gift exchange was one of the best presents I ever got.

Oh, George Bailey. It will be ok.

2.The Santa Clause, 2 & 3

These are all my favorite. I love having a Santa Clause marathon in my own house. I especially love when he has to find a Mrs. Clause in the second one. Noodles and pie anyone?

3. Elf

The best way to spread Christmas cheer is singing loud for all to hear.
Need I say more?

4. Love Actually

Is there anything better than a love story set at Christmastime? How about a bunch of them all intertwined?

5. The Holiday

Flashbacks to my sorority gilr days where we all crowded in a bsasement to watch this romantic holiday movie. Just something about the across the world love. And Jude Law doesn't hurt.

6. Arthur Christmas

This may be a cartoon but I somehow enjoy it. Arthur is the dorkier younger brother that likes the simple times of Christmas and what it's truly about. And his light up slippers, the best part.

7. Four Christmases

Many people did not enjoy this movie or hardly remember it existed. But as a Reese Witherspoon fan, I really enjoyed that she made holiday movie. And it even touched on the craziness of families when you have 4 to go to. Something we are well too familiar with this married Christmas year.

8. Christmas with the Kranks

Boycotting Christmas? Santa Clause in another Christmas movie? Just doesn't seem right. But will still always be at the top of my life to watch.

9. The Grinch

Cindy Lou Who. Da-da-DA GRINCH!! And how did Jim Carrey do it?!

10.Iron Man 3

It takes place at Christmas so it's a Christmas movie, right?

And just for good measure,

11. Pretty much any ABC Family Christmas movie.


  1. ABC family movies for sure! And Love Actually, I always watch that too.

  2. I completely forgot about Christmas with the Kranks until now. Love this list!

  3. I've never seen Arthur Christmas, but it's coming via Netflix and I'm excited. Christmas Vacation is one of my favorites :)

  4. It's such an adorable movie you will love it!

  5. Thank you! And yes I might just even do a "Christmas movies you might have forgot about" post now so thanks haha

  6. Love actually has played every night for the past 3 days. I have watched at least a part each time!

  7. I'm going to have to check out Arthur Christmas, it sounds really cute!

  8. Oh I seriously love like every one of these! Thanks so much for linking up! I hope you linkup again for week 3 is going to be fun!
