Christmas Movie Classics

 The month is seriously starting to zip by. For once I am kind of glad that December is moving by quickly. I’m ready to move onto 2021! I feel like 2020 has been a year where I’ve been kind of stuck in a time loop and just can’t really seem to get off of go. All the days just kind of blend together and after awhile the same ole same just starts to feel played out. So fingers crossed that everyone is able to experience a wonderful holiday season and that 2021 will be much better. 

However, that doesn’t mean in the waiting period till a new year that we can’t enjoy a few of our holiday favorite movies and traditions. Each year it changes, but I always feel like there are a few movies I ‘need’ to watch in order for it to be Christmas. So… here are my top five movies to watch this year!

White Christmas// This is without a doubt one of my most favorite Christmas movies ever. I just love all the dancing, singing, snow, clothes, and just how perfect the movie is overall. It is definitely a movie that will lift the human spirit.

 

Home Alone// Is it just me, or does anyone else instantly associate Home Alone with cheese pizza? I love that one of my childhood favorites is now considered to be a Christmas classic.

 

Miracle on 34th Street// I used to be a hardcore fan of the 1947 version, but over the years I have become more and more partial to the 1994 version. It just has a fresher feel to it and I absolutely love the cast

 

A Christmas Carol// For me, it has to be the George C. Scott version, or no Christmas Carol at all. He just did such a wonderful job at capturing the spirit that is Scrooge. The movie really shows the true meaning of the Christmas Spirit and the importance of spreading kindness around

 

Elf// Could Will Ferrell be any more perfect for the character he played in this movie? A human raised by elves ventures to NYC to try to find his biological father. This movie show that an inner child truly lives in all of us. 

The Polar Express// Have you ever noticed that anything Tom Hanks is in is an instant classic. He did such a wonderful job narrating this story and play a few different characters. This used to be one of my favorite Christmas books when I was younger.
