Without a certain few movies, Christmas just isn’t Christmas. The funniest part of it is, not all of my “Christmas movies” are even Christmas movies, just movies that I associate as such.
1. Breakfast at Tiffany’s (1961):
This is my wrapping movie. I turn it on and watch Audrey as Holly Golightly live her New York City life on my screen. This is one (of only a very select few) movie that is better than the book.
2. Bridget Jones’s Diary (2001):
Ah, Bridget and her crazy life. This movie gets me in a Christmas mood every time. Quality? No, not really, but still one of my must-watch movies during the holidays.
3. Bridget Jones: The Edge of Reason (2004):
Same as above.
4. It’s a Wonderful Life (1946):
Is there a better Christmas movie? Not hardly. The entire movie is beautiful. Every aspect. Love it!
5. A Charlie Brown Christmas (1965):
I just love Charlie Brown! I love all the holiday specials, but the Christmas movie is probably my favorite.
6. The Christmas Classics DVD Set (various):
I bought the DVD set for my classroom a few years ago, and I’m so glad to have it! Frosty the Snowman, Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer, Santa Claus is Coming to Town–they’re all good! I can’t wait to introduce them to Baby Gray!
7. Elf (2003):
So funny! We went to a quote-a-long at Alamo last year, and it made it even better! Love it!
In case you didn’t notice, my movie list looks a lot like my book lists: fluff. I guess I like mindless when I’m winding down. I wonder what that says about me?
