I did a post for Halloween movies so it is obvious that I need to do one for Christmas time movies. I already did a post on my family traditions and how we watch Scrooge every year and how that is not my favorite Christmas movie. But what is my favorite is a classic. I am going to let you think for a second before I admit what it is. There are plenty of movies probably going through your head right now, A Christmas Story, Home Alone, Jingle All the Way, Unaccompanied Minors, How the Grinch Stole Christmas, or The Polar Express. But my favorite is not actually any of those. In your head you probably know now what it is, if not any of those. It is The Santa Clause staring Tim Allen. That is my absolute favorite Christmas movie. I love the concept of the real and make-believe and it honestly makes you believe it is real. You learn how Santa can get into houses if there is no chimney and you have his son Charlie who will always believe in Santa because his dad is Santa.
Other than the Christmas movies I listed there are many, many more. Here are just a few:
Home Alone 2
The Polar Express
The Santa Clause 2
The Santa Clause, My favorite Christmas movie
The Santa Clause 3: The Escape Clause
Scrooge/A Christmas Carol
Frosty the Snowman
Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer
It’s a Wonderful Life
A Christmas Story
Dr. Seuss’ How the Grinch Stole Christmas
Jingle All the Way
Deck the Halls
I know this is a big list, but this really is just a few of the hundreds of Christmas movies. There are so many and even some of these movies I have yet to see. What is your favorite movie during the holiday season? Or if you cannot decide your favorite, what are your top 5? Let me know below! My top five would be, I cannot even decide on my top five so here is my top 7 but not in this order except for the Santa Clause because that will always be my favorite.
As I said, in my very first blog post and as I say on my about page, I love the fall. It is my favorite season. It has always been. But a season I do not have a choice but to love is winter. My birthday is in winter, late winter (March) but still winter. I snowboard and ski, I live in New England, and all of these factors make it very hard to hate the winter. I go to school near a mountain so I can snowboard whenever I very well please which is a great thing. And since it snows a lot, I get class canceled sometimes!
I am the person who loves to just go outside and have a snowball fight, or make a snowman or snow angels and then come inside and drink a nice hot cup of cocoa and warm up and then two hours later I am doing the same thing back outside freezing my butt off.
I love the snow falling; it is so peaceful and makes everything look so pretty and quiet. Everything seems to be at peace. I am a hopeless romantic so having a winter walking scene from a movie is something that I can only hope for in my head. It is a dream to have that scene one day like at the end of The Vow.
The only thing I dislike about the winter time is how cold it is. If I could have it warm and have it snowing at the same time, I would be a happy camper. As Phineas and Ferb said “Swinter” summer and winter mashed together for the best of both world. And yes I know I am in college and just quoted a Disney TV show.
What are your favorite things about the winter time? or do you hate every aspect of it? Let me know below!
