Top 10 Favorite Christmas Movies
Its the Holiday season, and one of my favorite things to do is to pour a glass of wine sit by the fire and wrap Christmas gifts while watching a favorite holiday movie.
The Hallmark Channel is great with their non-stop Christmas movies but once its close to Christmas I need to watch all of my old time favorites. So with that in mind, here is a list of the top 10 Christmas Movies from Esquire Magazine.
10- A Christmas Carol The 1951 adaptation of Charles Dickens work. Other versions of the Dickens classic are also good, especially the George C. Scott version.
9- The Muppet Christmas Carol Okay, so its the Muppets, it still is a good version of the story and one your children will enjoy watching with you.
8- Bad Santa The Billy Bob Thornton stars in this film about a thieving department store Santa.
7- Miracle on 34th St (the original one) I feel, this movie should be in the number 1 spot. This is my favorite Christmas movie, yes I know its black and white but I love it.
6- Scrooged The Bill Murray film about a t.v. executive who has lost the spirit of Christmas.
5- Home Alone The movie that made Macualay Culkin a house hold name. In all honesty, no matter how many times I have seen this film, I will still stop and watch it when its on t.v.
4- White Christmas Bing Crosby, Danny Kaye, Rosemary Clooney and Vera Ellen. I LOVE THIS MOVIE.
3- A Christmas Story The movie with the famous line " you'll shoot your eye out' it features the young Peter Billingsley and his dream of a Red Ryder BB gun.
2- National Lampoons Christmas Vacation. Our all time family favorite. In fact I am watching that film right now.
.....and in the number one spot....
It's A Wonderful Life The much loved story of George Bailey who is given a rare gift from an angle named Clarence.
So many other movies that are wonderful to watch so choose one of your family's favorite pop some popcorn and settle in for a wonderful evening.
