The kids have lots of presents. I think I wrapped 15 books last night, a few movies, some boots, shoes, clothes, and a few toys. Wrapping took much less time when I didn't have 6428 little kid presents to wrap. Not that I'm complaining. I like to wrap, and I like to have lots of things for them to open. The same goes for nieces and nephews too. A few smaller presents is more fun than one big one when you're that age, or at least I think so. Maybe I should poll the kids on that to be sure.
Anyway, the whole point of this is that while I wrap I like to watch Christmas movies. I have quite a few that I have to watch every year. So I thought I'd share my Christmas movie favorites and see if anyone has recommendations for ones I need to add to my list.
- Home Alone
- Love Actually
- The Holiday
- Christmas Vacation
- The Year Without A Santa Claus
These are my absolute must watch, it isn't Christmas unless I do, movies. I haven't watched The Holiday yet this year, but I'm hoping to watch it this weekend during nap time. It's not one that's high on Rob's list, so I try not to watch it when he's home. Love Actually however, he has to put up with. Home Alone, Christmas Vacation, and The Year Without A Santa Claus have been watched many times already.
Now that the kids are old enough to watch a little TV, or on some days a lot, we watch a lot of Christmas cartoon. We've watched Mickey's A Christmas Carol at least 5 times already and they love saying Bah Humbug. Ebeneezer Scrooge is apparently hilarious if you're two and a half. Frosty and Rudolph have also been played a couple times. We have yet to watch the Grinch, but I think we may need to find time over the next week.
I'm almost ashamed to say I've never seen Miracle on 34th Street or It's a Wonderful Life, so I know I need to get them watched. What other Christmas movies do I need to watch or add to my list? What are your faves? Not that I mind watching Christmas Vacation 15 times in one holiday season, but a little variety might be nice. So please, share your Christmas movie wisdom.
