Thank you all for so many great ideas to help tackle holiday stress and anxiety in the last blog! I think your suggestions will help many of us.
One of my favorite ways to alleviate a bit of stress – watching a movie that makes me happy! It’s time to talk about our favorite HOLIDAY MOVIES!!!
At this time of the year I seem to watch the same collection of holiday movies over and over. Perhaps it’s that the familiar is comforting. I also love movies that make me laugh. And some of these movies I actually will watch all year long if they pop up on TV.
What are your FAVORITE Holiday Movies?
Which movies have you watched MULTIPLE times?
Here are a few of mine:
“Rudolph The Red Nosed Reindeer” (1964)
“Santa Claus is Coming to Town” (1970)
“The Year Without a Santa Claus” (1974)
- In fact, I love Rudolph and both Santa movies so much – that I had them playing when I was induced with Theresa!!!
“Home Alone” (1990)
“Christmas Vacation” (1989)
“A Christmas Story” (1983)
“Jingle All The Way” (1996)
“The Santa Clause” (1994)
“The Polar Express” (2004)
“The Holiday” (2006) Am I the only one who loves this movie???
I’ll watch “How the Grinch Stole Christmas” (1966), “A Charlie Brown Christmas” (1965), and “Frosty The Snowman” (1969) – but they’re still not my favorites.
And, believe it or not – I’ve never watched “A Miracle on 34th Street”. (1947)
Of course “It’s a Wonderful Life” (1946) is tremendous – but it always made me a bit sad through the majority of it – so I don’t watch it unless I stumble upon it on TV. It’s the same with “A Christmas Carol” (1938) (1951) (1984).
Do any of you remember “Emmet Otter’s Jug-Band Christmas” (1977)? It was from Jim Henson and I remember watching it on HBO when I was little and I loved it!!! I haven’t seen it since then.
Oh yea, and if you don’t like having anyone talking through a movie – don’t watch any of these movies with me because I’ll be reciting all the lines that I have memorized! 🙂
It’s your turn! What are your favorites??? Post them below!!!
I can’t wait to see your picks!
