Top 10 Tuesday

Top Ten Tuesday – Favorite Christmas Movies

Christmas is right around the courner, so I thought it would be a good time to list my favorite Christmas movies.  Here they are, in descending order.

10.  Christmas Story – I used to REALLY love this movie, until TBS started playing it for 24 hours straight.  Now, I just like it.

9.  Home Alone – Home Alone came out when I was in my late teens, and it’s a movie I love to this day.  That Kevin McCallister was one smart cookie!

8.  Polar Express – I’ll admit – I’m 46 years old and I cry every time I watch this beautiful movie about the spirit of Christmas.

7.  Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer – this movie is a perennial classic, with Hermie, Rudolph and all those mean reindeer who bully and make fun of poor Rudolph.  It’s a story of triumph (ok, not really) and one of my all time favorites.

6.  Scrooged – this Bill Murray classic is another all time favorite.  The story of a total jerk of a guy who is visited by three ghosts is funny and touching.

5.  The Santa Clause – the original Santa Clause movie is by far the best of the series, and the most endearing, about a man who accidentally becomes Santa.

4.  Christmas Vacation one of the funniest Christmas movies of all time, Christmas Vacation makes you appreciate your family, because they aren’t the Griswold’s and crazy cousin Eddie.

3.  Elf I watch Elf every time it’s on.  Just a fun, sweet movie about a human who was adopted by an elf and raised in the North Pole.  Buddy is just awesome.

2. White Christmas – I watch this movie every year with my family.  It’s totally cheesy, with cheesy lines and cheesy dance numbers, but it has a good meaning and some great music.

And the best – It’s a Wonderful Life – by far the best Christmas movie ever created.  The story of a man who wants to take his own life, only to find out what would happened had he not lived touched my life personally about 25+ years ago, when I was going through a rough patch.  It’s a beautiful story that holds up to this day, almost 70 years later.
