[Tuesday Top 10: Christmas Movies]

Since I have been lacking in the whole craft-making department recently, I figured I would put "How-to Tuesday" on hold for a while and start up a "Tuesday Top 10" post. This is where I will talk about whatever is in my top 10 category (similar to the one on Letterman but not near as raunchy!).

Today, in lieu of the holidays, I am listing my Top 10 Christmas Movies. (drum roll please)

10. Sleepless in Seattle - Okay, I know many of you many not even consider this as a Christmas movie, but for some reason I always enjoy watching it around the holidays. And I still to this day cannot listen to "Jingle Bells" without singing "harses harses harses harses...". :0)

9. A Christmas Story - Definitely had to include this 80's Christmas Classic. "You'll shoot your eye out!" And I kid you not, back in college my roommate actually had the leg lamp in our room! It was definitely a conversational piece!

8. It's a Wonderful Life - As far back as I can remember, I can still see me, my brother, and my parents sitting at the television watching this Christmas classic. "Buffalo gal won't you come out tonight..."

7. The Grinch - Although I would definitely prefer the original 1966 "How the Grinch Stole Christmas", Jim Carey is absolutely hilarious in this movie!

6. A Charlie Brown Christmas - Watching this movie is a family tradition in our house. It's entertaining for the whole family, and it is just long enough to keep even the little one's attention.

5. Elf - Another hilarious Christmas comedy! I laugh every time when Will Ferrell jumps up on the tree and then falls over! "Buddy the Elf, what's your favorite color?"

4. Home Alone 2 - Personally, I think this one is better than the first one. So hilarious and totally makes me want to go to New York during Christmastime.

 3. National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation - The day after Thanksgiving this movie is being heard throughout the household. And I think we watch it at least a dozen times (if not more!) before Christmas Day. Another family movie tradition. "Can I refill your eggnog for you? Get you something to eat? Drive you out to the middle of nowhere and leave you for dead?"

2. Serendipity - Another movie that some of you may not consider a Christmas movie. But I am such a sucker for holiday romances, so this had to make the list. I could watch this movie all year long.

And the #1 Christmas movie is...

 1. The Holiday - It doesn't get much more Christmasy than this! I love everything about this movie: the music, the set design, the actors, the story, everything! It makes me want to cook me up Christmas fettuccine and cuddle up in a warm blanket next to a blazing fire. Ahh...pure bliss.

So, now it's your turn. What's on your Top 10 Christmas Movie list??



  1. I'm going right now to Google the best price for A Charlie Brown Christmas for the Kids! And I couldn't agree more with #1 and #10 and a few more, but I'm a sucker for a good romance!

  2. Oooh there are some I haven't seen. My all time favorite is White Christmas. I love the movie to pieces.


Whatcha thinkin?
