My Chritmas movies traditions always include Muppets Christmas Carol (who doesn’t love a good sing a long?!) Elf, Miracle on 34th Street, The Santa Claus movies, it’s a wonderful life.. and since i’ve been with Fiance Die Hard – he classes this as a christmas film, I disagree aha.

We ALWAYS watch “A Christmas Story” on Christmas morning while we open presents and eat breakfast. TBS has a 24 hour marathon!

mrsmacatak :  A Christmas Story has been my favorite Christmas movie since I was a child! I can watch it repeatedly when the marathon is on and never get sick of it lol 

I also like Elf, The Nightmare Before Christmas, Home Alone, Love Actually… I’ll give any Christmas movie a shot though.

My favorite Christmas movie is Christmas with the Cranks. It’s sooo funny, but it has a sweet Christmas-y ending. And of course Classic Rudolph. But I’m generally not that into Christmas movies.

The Year Without a Santa Claus if one of my faves (LOVE the Snow Miser), along with White Christmas and Holiday Inn. I’m a big Bing Crosby fan.

We watch Planes, Trains, and Automobiles and the newer Miracle on 34th Street every year in Thanksgiving. It really kicks off the holiday season for us.

Some of my favorites are Home Alone 1&2, The Family Stone, White Christmas, Little Women, Christmas Vacation, A Christmas Story, and basically every Christmas movies ever. They’re the best!

Elf and Muppets Christmas Carol.


I also really like joking that the first Harry Potter and Iron Man 3 count as Christmas movies.

DH and I love watching Christmas movies so we watch a lot of the holiday themed ones that start popping up in the Netflix suggestions too (since this weekend we’ve probably worked our way through 5 already).

My brothers and I always have 1776 (the musical) on while we decorate the tree at our parents’ place.  It doesn’t get less Christmasy than that, but it’s fun.

As a new tradition, last year, before FH moved up close to me, he came up to visit for Christmas.  And we saw that the historic theater downtown was putting A Christmas Story up on the big screen.  Of course we went!  It’ll be on again soon, and we’re going this year too.  It’s extra special somehow when it’s on the big screen! (and when you can hear it all instead of half the movie being drowned out by my parents arguing about which businesses had been where at which point, because my dad used to live about three blocks from the Christmas Story House in Cleveland and they both used to work downtown, so they’re blah toward the actual movie, but get very inspired by watching the background.  Ever hung out with old-skool telephone operators?  As they argue about which businesses were on which corner in which year, they also automatically spout the telephone exchange codes.  It’s fabulous.  But I digress.)
