My Favorite Christmas Movies #MondayBlogs #Christmas #Holidays

christmas 1I was planning to write a blog post about my favorite Christmas themed novel, but then I realized I haven’t read most of the ‘classic’ novels (unless we count How The Grinch Stole Christmas from Dr. Seuss, which I love). Although I’ve seen more adaptations of A Christmas Carol than should be allowed by the law, I’ve never actually read the novel from Charles Dickens. It’s only been on my TBR for a decade or so. I’ll get around to it someday. Maybe.

christmas 2I can’t even claim to have read many contemporary (romance) novels with Christmas themes. I’m not sure why. It’s not as if I hate Christmas. The only Christmassy novel I could even find on my read list on Goodreads is Visions of Sugar Plums (Stephanie Plum #8.5) by Janet Evanovich. (Have I mentioned I love Janet Evanovich? I want to be her when I grow up. Or at least write as witty scenes as she does.)

Well, there went that idea of sharing my favorite Christmas novel. Instead, I’m sharing my favorite Christmas movies. I have a bunch of movies I like to watch around Christmas that aren’t technically Christmassy, but the movies listed below are definitely Christmas-themed.

  1. The Family Stone
  2. A Charlie Brown Christmas
  3. The Grinch Who Stole Christmas
  4. Frosty the Snowman
  5. Rudolf the Red-Nosed Reindeer
  6. The Grinch (2018 version)
  7. White Christmas
  8. Love Actually
  9. Holiday Inn
  10. Elf

christmas 3I seriously love Elf. It’s one of my all-time favorite movies. It’s cute, it’s funny, it’s heartwarming. What more do you want? I admit I even booed the New York City Park Rangers as they trotted by at the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade as I thought of how they chased Santa out of the park on Christmas Eve. Boo! I already watched Elf this year. I couldn’t help myself! I spent Thanksgiving in New York City and the combination of the start of the holiday season and New York City was undeniable. I had to watch Elf! I saw the new Grinch movie while I was in New York as well. It was adorable. Reminiscent of the earlier version. Just updated for modern times. I highly recommend it.

What about you? What are your favorite Christmas movies?
