Four Christmases and 10 Holiday Favorites! by polkadots33
A Christmas Story

A Christmas Story

With less than one month till Santa’s big day I decided to check my list…twice and put together the ‘nice’ list of holiday favorites that you may want to view in the days leading up to Christmas.

I understand that due to traditions each person may have a very different top 10 but I have come up with a general group and would love to hear your comments about which movies you think make the list of the best Christmas movies.

First off though I must mention the new 2008 Christmas movie…

Of course with a cast that includes Reese Witherspoon and Vince Vaughn and many other great actors I think it is fair to say Four Christmases  might be worth checking out. It opened today and although I couldn’t make it to the theatre, I have already heard that it was ‘really good and really funny’.

So check it out and see if it makes your list of faves, at least with Vince Vaughn involved you are guarnteed some laughs!

 Here’s the trailer…

So in no particular order, here is a list of the best Christmas movies! 

Miracle on 34th Street

Miracle on 34th Street

It’s a Wonderful Life (1946)-directed by Frank Capra

Miracle on 34th Street (1947) -directed by George Seaton

A Christmas Story (1983) -directed by Bob Clark

A Charlie Brown Christmas (1965) -directed by Bill Melendez

A Christmas Carol (1938) -directed by Edwin L. Marin

The Santa Clause (1994) -directed by John Pasquin

Home Alone (1990) -directed by Chris Columbus

How the Grinch Stole Christmas (1966) -directed by Chuck Jones and Ben Washamgrinch

Prancer (1989) -directed by John D. Hancock

and one of my favorites…

National Lampoons Christmas Vacation (1989) -directed by Jeremiah S. Chechik

Many Christmas movies have been remade once or a few times, to me this must mean that we like the classic stories and don’t mind a modern twist every now and then.

So with just under a month to get all your decorating, shopping and baking done..don’t forget to find some time to grab a cup of eggnog and settle in for an evening with your favorite holiday flicks…whatever they may be!
