    My family watches National Lampoon Christmas Vacation every year. That is the best movie to get you in the mood. Hillarious!

    I love The Holiday, it’s one of my very favourites.

  3. Sallie says:

    We’ve got the sniffles here too. :( I don’t think I can pick a favorite, but I always try to watch “A Christmas Story” on Christmas eve. Oh, and the original Grinch (NOT the Jim Carey version). It’s hard to beat the classics, but some of the new Hallmark stuff is great too!

    A Christmas Story….hands down. I also enjoy Elf….Will Ferrell cracks me up in that movie. Have a wonderful day!

    Oh I love the old version of Scrooge, that is just favorite.
    We are just getting over the sniffles here,

  7. Hmmm…I love so many. The Holiday, Elf, Home Alone, A Christmas Story, How the Grinch Stole Christmas….maybe I’ll start a tradition on a Christmas movie each night of Advent. =)

    I just received my first order in the mail today – the jewelry is absolutely beautiful. Can’t wait to get my second order!!!!!

    Sorry I’m missing the boutique. I would love to see all the fun things I see online. And all the friends I know. Favorite Christmas movie? I have a couple: Miracle on 34th Street, A Christmas Carol (w/Reginald Owen), How the Grinch Stole Christmas (original) and of course, A Charlie Brown Christmas. I like some others I see above, too, but these top my list.

    If you’ve got children, the Polar Express is a must see and beautiful Christmas movie. My little is sixteen, and we still watch it over Thanksgiving weekend, every year. And then … right after that, we take a trip to NYC with Buddy the Elf. Options are good!

  11. Elf! Love that movie! I have so many favorite Christmas movies, it’s hard to pick just one favorite!

  12. Tonya says:

    Oh I forgot about The Holiday….I love that movie! Elf is a favorite at our home….my kids quote it like crazy! We got Home Alone this year and my kids cracked up throughout the whole movie. They’re quickly learning the lines of that one too. We also like A Christmas Story and of course National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation (for the adults only)!

    I’m afraid KS to Cali is a bit far to travel for a trunk show…darn it! Have fun!

    I love Elf
    “I passed through the seven levels of the Candy Cane forest, through the sea of swirly twirly gum drops… and then I walked through the Lincoln Tunnel.”
    And my kiddos love the classic Frosty the Snowman and Rudolph movies.

    it’s not a christmas movie by ANY means, but we {my family, my parents, and my brother and his wife} always watch “High Anxiety” {Mel Brooks 1977} over Christmas some time. It’s kind of a family cult classic. No one else even knows it, let alone watches it at Christmas, but what can I say . . . we’re a little odd! anyway, if you ever want a good laugh, check it out . . . but you probably have to watch it at least a dozen times before it becomes funny. it’s one of those!
    we also like elf and a christmas story and pre-kids i always thought home alone was funny and good for kids, but then i watched it post-kids and kinda changed my tune. the animated grinch is also a fun one! plus, the veggie tale christmas movies . . . alright, i’ll quite now!

  15. Rhea says:

    Favourite Christmas movie – definitely Home Alone! I tell my husband it’s a classic – he just laughs.

  16. lauren jordan says:

    Dying to see Four Christmases! It is in my Netflix que.

  17. Kathy Eller says:

    MIRACLE ON 34th STREET!!! We dont even “do” Santa here, but htat movie is soo amazing and so magical!!!

    Sorry to hear that David is sick :( Get lots of rest!!

    Having a Hallelujah Good Time

    Elf, Home Alone, Charlie Brown Christmas – are my faves! :)

  19. Jaime says:

    Ooh, I adore Christmas movies!!

    Love Actually, Serendipity, The Holiday, The Family Stone, Four Christmases, National Lampoon, The Grinch (original), Shrek the Halls, The Polar Express.

    Love, family, laughter, love, magic, and more love!

    There’s so many great holiday movies, it’s hard to pick….but if I was going to watch one tonight (without the kiddies) it would be Love Actually or While You Were Sleeping.
