My go-to holiday movies!

Today I am linking up with Shelly for Spiel the Beans with the Queens!!  The topic today is our go-to holiday movies.

1.  Christmas Vacation
This movie always puts me in the Christmas spirit!  I need to watch it at least 5 times every year.  And despite seeing it approximately 1000 times, it still makes me laugh!

2.  A Christmas Story
Yes, you WILL find me watching the 24 hour marathon on TNT each and every year.  This has been a tradition since I was in junior high.  I used to even invite my friends over for Christmas Story parties.  I'm pretty sure Shannon and I can still recite the entire movie, word for word.

3.  Just Friends
This movie CRACKS ME UP.  While it isn't really a traditional Christmas movie, it does take place at Christmas time so I think it counts.  Love Ryan Reynolds and Anna Faris!

4.  The Holiday
A good movie to watch any time of the year!  I just love that cozy little English cottage.  Makes me want to move to England!

I also enjoy Elf, Christmas with the Kranks, Home Alone, Deck the Halls and Jingle All the Way.
I guess you could say I really like Christmas comedies.  :)

I should also mention the Christmas movie I hope to NEVER EVER see again.  Do NOT watch The Christmas Shoes!  I mean, if you want to cry your eyes out and be sad and depressed, then yes, watch The Christmas Shoes.  But otherwise, stay away.  Stay far away!!

I can't wait to see what everyone else's favorite movies are and maybe discover a couple new ones to watch!


  1. BAHAHAHAHA The Christmas Shoes - oh I laugh so hard at that comment.

  2. Oh! I have never heard of Just Friends and I love Ryan Reynolds! Such a great listing of movies and National Lampoons is my absolute favorite. It's just not the holiday season if I don't watch it a few times!

  3. Oh my gosh, Christmas with the Kranks! I so love that one too!! Thank you so much for linking with us!

  4. Christmas with the Kranks - YES! And is Deck the Halls the one with Danny DeVito? My husband loves that one! SO MANY dang good ones to choose from! Thanks for linking with us!

  5. Great list! The holiday is one of my faves. I love Christmas romances. I've never seen The Christmas Shoes, now I'm slightly intrigued... ;)
