Let’s talk Christmas movies today, because if you’re anything like me then you love cozying up on the couch with a cup of hot tea and watching the (admittedly cheesy) Christmas movies that come on TV or are available to watch on Netflix. So many of them you know the whole story within minutes of it beginning but there’s a comfort that comes from watching them that we just can’t ignore, while others are just classics from our childhood that we can never give up.
With that I thought it would be fun to chat about our favorite Christmas movies today. After working for a good chunk of the day on Saturday, I came home and started getting myself organized to wrap. I’ve done 90% of my holiday shopping online this year (so convenient!) and I’m still waiting on a few things but after dropping a couple toys with the apartment complex’s Toys for Tots donations, sipping on my favorite Candy Cane tea from Trader Joes, and sorting through boxes and paper and ribbons, I was definitely feeling the holiday spirit.
I sat down on my couch ready to tackle my inbox and wanted to throw a movie on in the background. I keep hearing people talk about Love Actually and it’s been years since I’d seen it and didn’t remember much, if anything, so I turned it on. By the end of the movie, I’m pretty sure my heart was exploding with love. The whole thing got me thinking about how I need more of these cheesy movies in my life this week as we gear up for lots of time with friends and family.
Here are some of my favorite or more classic Christmas movies.
It’s A Wonderful Life
A Muppet Christmas Carol
A Christmas Story
How the Grinch Stole Christmas
A Charlie Brown Christmas
The other day on the radio I heard someone say, “the Christmas season doesn’t really start until you hear this song” and then the classic Charlie Brown Christmas tune came on and in that moment, I definitely couldn’t help but agree.
