Movies to Get You in the Christmas Spirit

One of the many things I love about the holidays are the films. These are the ones that I will be definitely watching this year:

  1. Four Christmases
  2. Serendipity
  3. Die Hard
  4. White Christmas
  5. The Ref
  6. The Holiday
  7. Love Actually
  8. Elf
  9. Bad Santa
  10. National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation

Some of these are cheesy; some of these are action packed; and some I have never seen before. I enjoy them all – even if they don’t have amazing plots or oscar-nominated performances. They have great one-liners and fantastic music. What are your favorite holiday films?

Favorite Christmas Movies

Soon it will be time to start our own decorating. I still follow the tradition that it isn’t quite Christmas season until Thanksgiving is over.

Every year I open up the Christmas season by watching my favorite Christmas movie: White Christmas. I often put Christmas movies on while decorating. It is one of my favorite things about Christmas.  Here are my top 10 favorite Christmas movies, in no particular order, that I am getting excited about watching next month:

  • White Christmas
  • Meet Me in Saint Louis
  • Miracle on 34th Street (the 1947 version)
  • National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation
  • Die Hard
  • The Holiday
  • Home Alone
  • Muppet Christmas Carol
  • Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer (1964 animated movie)
  • How the Grinch Stole Christmas (1966 animated movie)
