Top Ten Holiday Movies!

To get us in the season’s greetings mode, let’s look at a Top Ten listing of holiday movies. You will soon note that some of these I developed a ‘liking to’ when our girls were kids. And I’d like your response, but more about that later. Here are my favs:

10. Frosty the Snowman – When you’ve watched #10 and #9 a hundred times they’ve got to be favs!

9. Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer

8. Home Alone – Hard to beat that first original for slapstick humor!

7. It’s a Wonderful Life – Jimmy Stewart is simply timeless as is the storyline.

6. How the Grinch Stole Christmas – The cartoon is best but the Jim Carey version is really good as well.

5. Miracle on 34th Street – Old or new, take your pick. They both are great.

4. A Christmas Carol – You can’t beat the version with George C. Scott as Scrooge. He scared me as a kid. He’s been dead for years, but he still scares me when he yells. "CRACHET!" 

3. A Charlie Brown Christmas – It is worth the hour to get to the end and see something you never see in the papers: Charlie Brown experiencing a happy ending about anything!

2. While You Were Sleeping – Just a good funny and feel-good movie. Chick flick? Perhaps but allow me one once in a while!

1. The Muppet Christmas Carol – We watch it every Christmas Eve. Kermit’s playing the role of Charles Dickens is priceless.

That’s some of what I like to watch at Christmas time. What do you like? What have I left out that is a must for you? Let me know and enjoy your movie time, hopefully with your family.

    Holiday Inn or White Christmas – whatever you call it! Can’t beat Bing singing White Christmas, I still get goose bumps!
