A Few Christmas Movies You Should Watch With Family
Christmas is an amazing time of the year. I love watching some of my favorite Christmas movies, while wrapping my gifts to family and friends. Here are some of my favorites in case you need to pass the time while you wrap or just want to relax and enjoy the Christmas season.
Santa Claus is Coming to Town
Out of all the old school Christmas specials, this one is my favorite. It beats out “Rudolph” and “Frosty” for me. I think I love the romance between Nick and Jessica. Even as a kid I loved the romantic plot lines.
A Charlie Brown Christmas
So I guess this one isn’t a movie but it counts. It’s all of your favorite “Charlie Brown” characters with their own feelings about Christmas. It’s super relatable for kids and adults. And there’s something beautifully nostalgic about it. And when Linus tells us what Christmas really means…he puts that shit in perspective.
The Muppets Christmas Carol
This is actually one of my favorite Muppet movies ever. Michael Caine is such a fantastic actor and it really shows during this film. It is like a masterclass in acting. Everyone loves the story of “A Christmas Carol” but what makes it even better is Gonzo and Rizzo.
Dr. Suess’ How the Grinch Stole Christmas
I’m sorry in advance for not liking the good ol’ cartoon more, but I have to say I love this movie. Jim Carrey is fantastic and this movie is so goddamn quotable. “But what will I wear?” “That’s it – I’m not going!” “Jury duty, jury duty, blackmail, jury duty!” It’s so entertaining and it brings me so much joy.
