I Love Me Some Christmas Movies!

I watched the Miracle on 34th Street last night to get me in the Christmas mood. I love me some Miracle. Then I watched the Hollywood Backstory on it... Did you know it won three Oscars? and they released it in June and the trailers didn't mention that it was a Christmas movie? And it ran longer than any other movie until that time... over six months, all the way till Christmas? Like I said, I love me some Miracle. When Santa sings with that little Dutch girl...chokes me up every time.

I have a Christmas story in mind... not sure whether it's a whole book or a novella. Maybe I'll actually work on it someday when I get time.

So I am looking forward to the Christmas season... and more Christmas movies like The Santa Clause, It's a Wonderful Life, The Little Drummer Boy, Santa Clause is Coming to Town, Nester the Christmas Donkey, Love Actually, and soooo many others. It's the one time of year I actually get sentimental.

So what are your favorite holiday movies?

Grinch, It's a Wonderful Life, A Christmas Carol (pretty much ANY version), A Holiday Affair (Lifetime remake), Three Days, The Holiday.

I always get TONS of ideas for Christmas stories around this time of the year. So many stories, so little time....

One of my favorites is The Family Stone.

Jingle All the Way is a fam fav and you can't forget Christmas Vacation.

Christmas just isn't Christmas without Clark Griswold.
