I seriously can't believe it's already the 19th! Due to our upcoming move, I must say this Christmas hasn't been as festive ( at least decor wise) as it usually is. We tend to go all out in decorating and trying to craft our family tradition, but this year we're focusing on two things: eating healthy holiday treats and watching our favorite Christmas movies.
Billy and I have a thing about watching old school movies, especially if they are rare and artistic. We also enjoy classics that are meaningful. I could add a lot to this list, but for now, here are some of our favorite Christmas moveis!
A Monster's Christmas The monsters of the world are unable to sing Christmas carols anymore after losing their voices. A little girl decides to team up with them to confront the pretty amusing, gym loving witch who cursed them. It's the cutest little movie from New Zealand!
Muppet Christmas Carol One of my all time favorite movies! A Jim Henson spin on the Dickens classic, this movie is filled with lovable characters and great songs.
Scrooged Please tell me you have seen this Bill Murray take on A Christmas Carol! It is hilarious!
Last Holiday I rented this movie when we lived in LA and Billy and I loved it. It is our must watch every year, probably because of the hotel in Czech Republic that the movie took place in. That plus the fact there is an emphasis on eating good food.
Munster's Christmas If you've been reading my blog for a while you know we love all things monsters. This 90s movie is one of our daughter's favorites! Freddie Munster isn't feeling very festive living in California, and to cheer him up the family decide to compete in a Christmas decorating contest. And Santa makes a visit!
A Holiday For Love If you're a sucker for Hallmark style Holiday romance movies, you will love this movie! A corporate guy from the city goes to lay off workers at a small town factory, only this get complicated. He doesn't have the courage to tell anyone they will have no job after the holiday, so lies and says he is on a business trip to possibly buy tractors from them. He falls for one of the factory workers and struggles to help find a solution to what the corporate CEO wants.
Cabbage Patch Christmas If you're a child of the 80s/90s you'll probably love watching this with your little ones!
The Snowman Ray Bradbury's beautifully animated classic. This movie is magical.
A Christmas Story I was never a huge fan of this movie until Billy and I spent one Christmas in New York. It was playing all day and night on one channel so kept tuning in on and off. We've been fans ever since. It's so well written.
The Happy Elf Another long time favorite of ours, this animated story follows the super energetic and enthusiastic elf that is determined to help one town get the Christmas it deserves.
What are your favorite holiday movies? Elf? Home Alone? Let me know in the comments!
