Get Yourself In The Spirit

17 Dec

My 10 favorite holiday movies:

10.The Holiday
Ok, so it’s definitely not a “classic” but I love the cheesy story line…and I have, from time to time, wished that I could swap houses with someone for the holiday season. If you haven’t, you need a better imagination.

9. A Christmas Carol
Don’t judge me for saying this, but I actually prefer the Disney version. I’ll take any of them, though. Except for the Lifetime one with Vanessa Williams. Horrible.

8. White Christmas
The music alone puts me in the Christmas spirit.

7. How the Grinch Stole Christmas (The Dr. Seuss cartoon version)
I’d live in Whoville for the month of December if I could.

6. It’s A Wonderful Life
It’s a classic, and if this one doesn’t warm your heart, you could be Satan.

5. Home Alone
It’s just not Christmas if I don’t see Kevin McAllister’s darling little face and tricky antics.

4. A Christmas Story
I’m a sucker for the TBS marathon. The narration (Ralphie as an adult) often makes me laugh out loud. Case in point: “Now, I had heard that word at least ten times a day from my old man. He worked in profanity the way other artists might work in oils or clay.” Hats off to the writers, who were some kind of funny.

3. Love Actually
Eight story lines all wrapped into one (with a pretty Christmas bow), you have to be in the mood for a chick-flick when you watch it. That said, if you are in the mood, it’ll leave you with a feel good feeling about…what else? Love.

2. Miracle on 34th Street
Natalie Wood, New York, Macy’s and Santa Claus on trial? Yes, please.

1. Christmas Vacation
Every time I watch it, I’m both thankful and a little sad that I don’t have a cousin like Eddie.
