Today’s category is an easy one for me. It’s also one that really doesn’t change much from year to year. I start taping Christmas movies on Lifetime, Hallmark and INSP as soon as they air so I can watch them ALL year long. I’m a sucker for a happy ending and let’s face it, Christmas movies have happy endings.
So this list could be reallllllllllly long, but I will just keep it to the top 5 MUST watch each and every year movies.
It’s a toss up for me about whether White Christmas with Bing Crosby, Rosemary Clooney, Vera Ellen and Danny Kaye or It’s a Wonderful Life with Jimmy Stewart, Lionel Barrymore and Donna Reed is my absolute favorite, but I think I’m leaning towards It’s a Wonderful life!
Which Miracle on 34th street version (the original with Natalie Wood or the remake with Richard Attenborough) is the best? BOTH versions of course!
The Santa Clause with Tim Allen quickly became a favorite – who could resist visiting the North Pole every year?
Now Home Alone is just silly, as is Christmas Vacation with Chevy Chase but, they never fail to make me laugh! A new favorite is the Christmas Chronicles with Kurt Russell and Goldie Hawn.
Maybe I’ll give Miracle on 34th Street another try. It’s one of the few, I always struggled to get into that much. It’s A Wonderful Life is also on my have to watch list, always surprised when I come across people who’ve never seen it. I did a movie post today 🙂
There’s just something about the hopefulness of those movies for me! I know, me too when someone says they haven’t seen a classic, I know I’m looking at them like they’re from Mars or something 😀
I never watch the old movies during the season, maybe I will thins year for a change 🙂
REALLY? 😀 that surprises me about you! If I watch no other movie each year, I do watch IT’S A WONDERFUL LIFE without fail!
