1. The Muppet Christmas Carol
This is the Muppet's take on the classic Dickens's work A Christmas Carol. I grew up on the Muppets, so this was an instant Christmas favorite for me. It gets played every year. My Mom and I would watch it together with a big bowl of popcorn. I still curl up with it, only now my 4 year old daughter will join me!
2. National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation
Whenever I watch this movie I know I'm going to be giggling and laughing from the opening credits to the closing ones. This movie is HILARIOUS!! If you're big on physical comedy, you will thoroughly enjoy this movie. Chevy Chase decides to host a family Christmas at his house and what ensues is funny!
3. While You Were Sleeping
Lucy loves a man she sees every morning. The fact that she doesn't know anything about him means nothing. However, everything changes when she saves his life after he's pushed onto the train tracks. Before she knows it, she's mistaken as his fiance and welcomed into his family. A cute holiday comedy.
4. The Nightmare Before Christmas
In this Tim Burton holiday movie all the holidays are their own separate towns- never knowing about the others. But what happens when Jack, from Halloween Town, stumbles upon Christmas Town? How well can Christmas and Halloween blend together? So creative and fun to watch, this is my favorite Tim Burton movie.
5. How The Grinch Stole Christmas
My daughter was too young to enjoy the original cartoon, so we always played the Jim Carey movie when we'd entertain. I thought they did a great job remaking the movie. The movie is visually stunning. I love the make-up, hair, costumes, and sets were great. I also thought Jim Carey did a great job as the Grinch.
There you have it. Now you know what will be on in my house on any given time. I hope some of the movies that made my list are your favorites, too.
