Top Christmas Movies

Wednesday, December 5, 2012

We all like to cozy up in the winter on the couch with warm popcorn and hot chocolate to watch Christmas movies.

Here are some of my top picks:
  • Miracle on 34th Street: Miracle on 34th Street is one of ultimate favorite Christmas movies about believing in something or someone even if reason says otherwise. 
  • It's a Wonderful Life: This movie shows that our lives can have meaning and hope even if it seems like we are doomed.
  • White Christmas: I am not a huge fan of miracles and I often fast forward through the fast songs, but this one is a classic filled with a few Christmas songs and shows that helping an old friend is better than publicity (also love can happen quickly).
  • While You Were Sleeping: This isn't entirely a Christmas movie, but the guy does go into a coma on Christmas day, but it shows the spirit of family and helps you to appreciate your loved ones for the holiday.
  • A Charlie Brown Christmas: It's usually on TV once a year and you can even view it on Hulu. Charlie Brown and the gang find the true meaning of Christmas and help remind us the true meaning as well.
  • Home Alone: Home Alone is probably the most dangerous to show kids - the first time my brothers and I saw it, we wanted to try and slide down the stairs in a sled and out the front door. It's funny and shows that no matter how much you think you want to be alone, you will still want your family around during the holidays.
  • Santa Clause: I enjoy watching this film in the holidays and watching how becoming Santa Claus and learning more about the feeling of Christmas can change a man into becoming a better person and dad.
  • How the Grinch Stole Christmas: A Dr. Seuss classic about a green hermit that learns the true meaning of Christmas.
  • A Christmas Story: The Christmas story is a classic childhood story. The house where this movie is filmed at is available for tour in Cleveland. Check it out here.
  • A Muppet Christmas Carol: The muppets tell the story of the Christmas Carol with upbeat and fun music.
  • Arthur Christmas: My husband and I saw this last year during our honeymoon, it was super hilarious.
