I love Christmas and the holiday season. Just as much as Halloween, but for other reasons. A favorite holiday tradition is watching movies that invoke nostalgia. Here's my short list of movies that fit the bill. In no specific order. I recommend you watch them all, in any order you like.
A Christmas Story. Possibly the BEST Christmas movie ever. Ever. And the little boy looks exactly like my uncle did when he was that age.
Home Alone. Nothing is funnier than a movie about some 8-year-old boy that accidentally got left at home. I have 4 kids, so that could be one of mine someday.
The Grinch. The original cartoon version. Way better than the remake with actors and a classic.
A Charlie Brown Christmas. Um, that little, sad Charlie Brown Christmas tree is an icon.
It's a Wonderful Life. Classic. ‘Nuf said.
National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation. If you don't like Clark Griswold, I believe there is something wrong with you.
The Nightmare Before Christmas. One of my all-time favorite movies, and not just at Christmas. Tim Burton is a genius.
The Polar Express. This movie has such a great message for kids. One of our family favorites and we watch it every year. At least once.
Love Actually. I watch this movie at least once a year, and usually not at Christmas. Such a great chick flick.
