My Seven Favorite Christmas Movies

So, ok.  Since Hallmark has decided to jump start Christmas obscenely early with it’s parade of Christmas movies November 1st this year, this list of Christmas movies may seen redundant. But these seven movies – not from Hallmark by the way, are ones I  make time for every season. Don’t judge me.

  1. Love Actually. It has everything- unrequited love, new love, heart break, plus a host of stars marching through the movie. (Colin Firth, anyone?) It’s a bunch of little dramas in one-eight separate stories.

  2. The Gathering. This is a somewhat obscure and predictable movie, staring Ed Asner as a gruff, tough businessman/father  who mellows out after a dire health diagnosis. Yes predictable. But it’s the first movie hubby and I watch every year.

  3. A Christmas Carol-the Muppet version.  How old am I? Hey, I work hard to keep my inner child contented. One can be reminded just as easily about the importance of generosity through puppets as by Michael Caine, can one not? Although Caine does a great job.

  4. Planes, Trains and Automobiles. I love John Candy and  his humble goofiness. The world lost a great comedian when he passed. Enough said.

  5. Christmas with the Kranks. I am a pushover for change of heart movies-and Jamie Lee Curtis rocks it all the time.

  6. Home Alone – Mostly, I drool over the beautifully decorated house. If I could afford it, I’d have rd comforters on every bed and lights on every upright object-including the hubby.

  7. The Holiday. Two fed up  women switch houses for a holiday vacation and both find what they have been looking for all along.
