Get in the Christmas Spirit!

It’s full-force Christmas mode now, and what better way to get in the Christmas spirit than to watch some Christmas movies!?!?

I think my favorite Christmas movie is The Family Stone. I love it! My friend Megan hates it. She says it’s too uncomfortable for her to watch and she feels bad for Sarah Jessica Parker’s character. Whatever. That movie rocks, and SJP’s character is a way annoying up until the time she hooks up with Luke Wilson.

I love that when my friend Brianna went to see it in the theatre she accidentally went to the subtitled showing. Hahaha! You know you can’t do anything but read the subtitles across the bottom when they are there…even when you already know what they say.

Christopher’s fave Christmas movie is the original animated The Grinch Who Stole Christmas, which was always my favorite as kid. My parent’s taped it on TV one night – old school style: record+play, stop at commercials, and pick up just a few seconds late after the commercials. I used to watch The Grinch and Frosty the Snowman over and over again. Great movies.

Also quite enjoyable for me over the holidays? White Christmas with Bing Crosby, Miracle on 34th Street, Love Actually, and Bad Boys II. What? You didn’t know Bad Boys II was a Christmas movie??? Well, technically I suppose it’s not, but it’s probably my favorite movie and I got it on Christmas, and then watched it (to the dismay of my mom and Keith) about ten times on Christmas. Now I kinda associate it with Christmas.

(the dancing - it's my favorite!)


(What about this doesn't say "Christmas???")

What’s your favorite Christmas movie???

Kitty-face’s favorite seems to be the Grinch as well…


  1. It's a Wonderful Life! Ya'll can borrow my copy.

  2. I have never actually watched White Christmas with Bing Crosby, but now I can't wait. My tree is up! Is yours?

  3. hmmm, my security word was "carvin". As in, "there's no pumpkin carvin at Christmas, but I love it anyhow."

  4. Without a doubt "National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation" and "The Holiday". I actually can recite the words of Christmas Vacation right along with the movie. Is that sad?

  5. I LOVE LOVE LOVE Christmas movies. You should add "The Holiday" to your rotation as well!

  6. Holiday staples in our household:
    A Christmas Story (at least twice on Christmas Day)
    Christmas Vacation ('nuff said)
    Elf (do you know the 4 food groups?)
    Four Christmases (a new addition and quite funny)

  7. Keith - eeeeh. Still not convinced of its greatness.
    Ouida - no tree yet, but probably this weekend. If you like old movies, you will love White Christmas. I don't even really like old movies, but I love this one!
    Jaclyn and Sabrina - yes! The Holiday is awesome!
    BT - love, love, love Four Christmases!!! (and...candy, candy canes, candy corns, and syrup)
