Introduction:I love movies, and I really love watching movies that fit right in with holiday seasons; especially Christmas. So here are the top five Christmas movies I will be watching this year (and probably next year and the year after that and the year after that...) Enjoy!
I love musicals! So the fact that there is a musical like "White Christmas" makes me very happy. In recent years it has become a bit of a tradition to watch this movie on Christmas Eve. I would like to do that again this year because it is just such a "feel-good" movie and perfect to watch the day before such an exciting, fun, love filled day like Christmas.
I am pretty sure I have watched "Mickey's Christmas Carol" every year since I was born (in 1984). It is a tradition in my family, who all love Christmas movies and Disney. This great Disney Christmas classic is an animated retelling of Charles Dickens' "A Christmas Carol," starring Scrooge McDuck as Ebenezer Scrooge and Mickey Mouse as Bob Crachitt.
It is also family tradition to watch "Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer." This classic claymation film tells the story of Rudolph, the red nosed reindeer and his misfit friends as they battle the elements, encounter new friends and enemies, and ultimately promote the idea that diversity is a good thing. I love it! What I really love though is hearing my mom sing along to "Holly Jolly Christmas."
This musical movie is another retelling of Charles Dickens' "A Christmas Carol," but instead of Scrooge McDuck, it stars Albert Finney as Ebenezer Scrooge, the selfish, stingy miser who has a change of heart after being visited by three spirits on Christmas Eve. I love this version mostly because of the fun music involved, including "I Like Life," and "Thank You Very Much."
This "chick flick" is a staple in my movie collection that I can watch anytime throughout the year, but I like it most at Christmas time. The story is about Iris (Kate Winslet) and Amanda (Cameron Diaz), two women fed up with their romantic lives who decide to switch houses during the holiday season. Each finds love, of course, which may be a bit predictable, but what's wrong with a little predictability, when you can experience so many emotions along the way? My favorite part of this movie is Kate Winslet. I can feel what her character feels, she makes me believe that I can relate to her and her situation, and she's just so beautiful and fun to watch.
Other movies I'll be watching? "Frosty the Snowman," "The Year Without a Santa Claus," "It's a Wonderful Life," "How the Grinch Stole Christmas," "Last Holiday," "Rent," and probably many, many more!
