Christmastime is (Almost) Here…

So now that Thanksgiving weekend is officially over, I don’t feel so guilty blogging about my love for all-things-Christmas every day. πŸ˜‰

Well, not every day. I typically take Wednesdays off…and sometimes Sundays. Anyway, irrelevant. πŸ˜‰

I would be lying to you if I told you that I waited until after Thanksgiving to watch Christmas movies, though. I. Seriously. Love. Them. I have a few favorites that actually make up quite a strange combination…and I tend to rotate through them as the need arises for me to get myself into the Christmas spirit.

In keeping with my dorkiness, most of these tend to be older and geared more toward children. (No comments, please. ;))

A few of my favorites…in no particular order.

Prancer is one that I can watch on repeat…literally. I think it’s probably my favorite-favorite. My daddy took me to the movie when I was eleven, and I loved it. Clearly that love is still there. And I do own it on DVD should you need some Prancer magic this Christmas season. :)

I think It’s a Wonderful Life is mandatory for the list. Tobin and I watch it every year, and it just gets better every time. Love it. (And I own it, too, if you need to borrow it.)

Home Alone (and Home Alone 2) totally crack me up. I can watch them over and over and just about wet my pants every single time. Sadly, I don’t own these. (Honey??? You were asking me what I want this year?! :)) Definitely classics.

Oh, and there are more on my list…actually thinkin’ this list needs a part two…but these are at the top. And now I seriously want to sit down and watch Home Alone and laugh hysterically with no one, but I should really go to sleep instead…you know, do the responsible thing. πŸ˜‰

What are some of your favorites?



  1. Would Mae like to borrow “Elmo Saves Christmas?” Seriously, it is okay if we depart from it for a few days! I also decided my two oldest were old enough for A Christmas Story last year. Love it!
    Anyone see the one about Mary? How is it?

    • A Christmas Story is one of those that’s up there, too, though I have to admit that there are parts that make me a bit queasy…read: tongues and telephone poles. πŸ˜‰ I’m sure Mae would love to borrow Elmo…maybe when Christmas is a little closer? Not sure I can handle four weeks of it! :) Happy Tuesday, friend!
