My Favorite Christmas Movies

"You smell like beef and cheese. You don't smell like Santa."
"The best way to spread Christmas cheer is singing loud for all to hear."

The Family Stone
"You have a freak flag. You just don't fly it."
"She has got this throat-clearing tick... it's like she's digging for clams!"

Home Alone
"You guys give up yet? Or are you thirsty for more?"
"Bless this highly nutritious microwavable macaroni and cheese dinner and the people who sold it on sale. Amen."

What are your favorite Christmas movies?

How funny! I'm actually doing my Top 10 List for today's post.

Elf is going to be on my list, too. :-)

Shorty said...

National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation, A Christmas Story, Elf, The Grinch, and all the old school holiday flicks that come on tv. (But I'm not a fan of the new Charlie Brown voices... I want the old kids back!)

My favorite would have to be Nestor the Long Eared Christmas donkey. They used to play it every year on tv when I was little. My grown up favorite would have to be The Family Stone. I've had to endure the movie Elf way too many times for me to be able to like it at all anymore. The kids watch it ALL FRIGGIN YEAR!

Merry Christmas!

I just watched Home Alone last night! I have seen that movie 500 times and I still cry at the end.

Also...loving that still of Buddy the Elf getting mauled by the racoon.

Buddy the Elf! What's your favorite color?

I love Home Alone!!! I also love the Family Stone even thought it makes me cry every time. I spend this year explaining to my boyfriend that without trying to be this intimidating his family is the same way (only much more warm and inviting but you have to break the surface.. it's tough for an outsider to walk into a home with 6 kids, parents and sig others!)
