Christmas Movie Marathon

Favorite Christmas movies....Go!

Here are mine, the ones I've seen a million times and are never tiring. I included movies I love where pivotal scenes take place at Christmas time.

How the Grinch Stole Christmas (original cartoon)
The Nightmare before Christmas (I watch this at Halloween and Christmas)
Edward Scissorhands
Mickey's Christmas Carol (my favorite incarnation of the story, since I love Scrooge McDuck so much)
Love, Actually
Miracle on 34th Street (the original)
While You Were Sleeping
Sleepless in Seattle
John Denver and the Muppets Christmas Specials
Home Alone

Runners up. These are the ones that Mike's family grew up watching, but I had never watched regularly until we started dating:

National Lampoons Christmas Vacation
The Muppet Christmas Carol

Now, please list all of yours so I can go "Oh man, I totally left that one off!"

P.S. I've never seen A Christmas Story. Every year I think: This is the year! Hopefully, this will be the actual year.


  1. I LOVE a Miser Brother's Christmas. It's a really cheesy little kids movie with claymation but I love it. LOL I have to watch it every year! And I have STILL never seen Love, Actually. I've been really wanting to....maybe I will just go buy it, everyone says it's good. =)


  2. loe actually isn't just my favourite christmas movie - it's my favourite movie EVER! (I love movies that have different but mildly connecting stories). hmm what else...the claymation rudolph movie of course!

  3. Julie - I'll have to watch that one!

    Patience - I know, right? Love Actually is really the best. I always looked forward to seeing the Christmas specials on TV every year (claymation rudolph, Animated Frosty the Snowman). I love them!

  4. Mickey's Christmas Carol is a close, close runner-up after The Muppet Christmas Carol for me. I friggin love The Muppet Christmas Carol, though it makes me cry...even at the happy parts.

    Definitely watch A Christmas Story! I love it.

    Also, I wouldn't consider it one of my all-time favorites, but I quite liked The Holiday. But that might just be my Jude Law crush talking ;)

  5. I liked The Holiday as well. It should definitely be on the list!!

    When Harry Met Sally is a perfect addition! It's very Christmassy.

  6. I've never seen A Christmas Story either! Did you catch it this year? :)

  7. Mandy - Nope, still haven't seen it. I might have to watch it post-christmas. My husband loves it, so maybe we should just buy it for our collection.


Comment nicely and with tolerance or be deleted!
