Christmas Movie Night In

Are you obsessed with Christmas movies like I am?  I'm telling you, once Thanksgiving is over, my TV is glued to the Hallmark channel and their continuous run of Christmas movies (the cheesier the better, in my opinion)!

Of course, even better than the Hallmark movies are the classics. I have a list of movies that I must see every Christmas season. Below are a list of my favorites. Be sure to scroll down and let me know which one I should watch tonight in my PJs. :)

In no particular order...

It's a Wonderful Life

This movie is the one that Spencer and I watch every Christmas Eve as we sleep in front of the Christmas tree. This year we will be spending Christmas in TN with my family, so we will have our Christmas Eve together on Monday night. This will definitely be playing (bonus: Spencer bought it for me when we were engaged on DVD. And it comes in B&W AND color!!).


No other Christmas movie makes me laugh as hard as Elf. Will Ferrell is excellent as Buddy the Elf, and I don't think I can ever get tired of it! He's so innocent and sweet - a perfect family movie!

Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer

We watched this ALL the time as a kid. It's a total classic, and just not Christmas if this doesn't get played on our television at least once!

The Polar Express perfectly captures the magic of Christmas that we all experienced (and hopefully still experience!) as children. It's a sweet story, and based on a book that is just as great. Also, the animation is incredible.

National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation

Is it truly Christmas without the Griswolds? Not really. This hilarious movie makes me thankful for a normal, uneventful Christmas! While it might not be suitable for all ages, it's definitely a classic in my book.

There are many, many more great classic Christmas movies (Miracle on 34th Street, A Christmas Story, How the Grinch Stole Christmas, Home Alone, etc. etc. etc.), but these 5 are definitely on my list of "must-watch" movies this season.

Help me out - which Christmas movie should I watch tonight? Let me know your vote in the comments!
