Christmas Movies

I'm not a huge fan of traditional Christmas movies.  They are just a little too cheesy for me.  Did I mention I cringe at most Christmas music (although I am going to give A Glee Christmas a chance).  I'm that girl.

I'm just going to put this out there (Jason and his family will strongly disagree), but I despise A Christmas Story...the one with the red rider BB gun, "you'll shoot your eye out kid" one.  Clearly I am the minority since there are always a few channels that play this movie over and over all season.  Terrible movie.  So creepy. 

With that said, I compiled my top 5 holiday movie list.  Do you agree?  I want to know your favorites! 


5.  Love Actually

Love Hugh Grant and Colin Firth.  Such a clever movie.  Only problem, one year I suggested that we watch this as a family on Christmas Eve.  Parents, grandma everyone was there.  I totally forgot about the nudity and pron couple.  Little uncomfortable.  Save this one for non-family time.


4.  Christmas Vacation

Hilarious!  I have too many favorite parts to list.  Well maybe the squirrel part!


3.  Elf

If you haven't seen this movie yet, stop reading this blog now and go rent it.  We have a new tradition in my family of watching Elf after we eat on Thanksgiving.  It's a great way to kickoff the Christmas season (and recover for round two of the food).


2.  Four Christmases

I think I love this movie so much because Jason and I can relate to it.  I get comfort in their craziness.  I haven't watched it yet this year and plan on doing that very soon to gear up! 


1.  The Family Stone

I could watch this movie over and over and over all day long which is why it's my #1.  It has so many good people in it, but more importantly a great story.  It makes me laugh and cry, but isn't the least bit cheesy. 


Happy Holiday Movie Watching!

  1. I completely agree. Craig and I always watch either Elf or Love Actually on Christmas Eve together. I would put Home Alone on my list as well.
