Top Five Christmas Movies!

Hello, all!

I'm back again for the second day of...


Again, head over to Stories by Firefly for the full list of posts each day! More great posts await you!

Christmas movies are so much fun! One of my favorite parts of the Christmas season is snuggled up with a blanket and a mug of hot chocolate to watch a Christmas movie with my family.
I admit, my sisters, mom, and I always spend a lot of time watching the Hallmark Channel during the Christmas season. Don't know how many of you have seen those, but they're some of my favorites. A little cheesy, but fun. :) And of course, there's all the classics, too... ;)

Today, I'm bringing a list of five of my top Christmas movies. Not necessarily my very favorite movies (how could you choose?), but a list of fun favorites in our household! You ready? 


1. A Charlie Brown Christmas

Of course, this one is a classic. Who can resist good ol’ Charlie Brown and his friends? Definitely a favorite in our household.

2. A Garfield Christmas Special

Yet again, a Christmas movie that we watch every year. We just watched it the other day! It's kind of an old(er) movie. I think my parents recorded it on VHS back in the early 90s. (Yep, we still have it!)

3. Miss Lettie and Me

Such a sweet movie!! I admit, there are parts when even I tear up, and I'm not usually one to cry during movies. The entire movie doesn't completely revolve around Christmas, but it is always a holiday watch. :)

4. How the Grinch Stole Christmas

This is another must-watch during Christmas in our home! Max is my favorite. :)

5. The Most Wonderful Time of the Year

This. Even my younger brothers (who aren't so much fans of these kind of movies) enjoy this one. :D It's got humor, romance, and of course, Christmas! This is for sure one of my favorite Christmas movies. I like it. A lot. ;)

The overwhelming tasks that go along with Christmas have taken the joy out of the holidays for busy single mom Jennifer Cullen. Then her Uncle Ralph arrives at her home with the young, handsome Morgan Derby. Morgan's love of Christmas and life is contagious, and as Jennifer glumly navigates through the holidays, she soon realizes that what she needs most is right under her nose.

Of course, there are many, many more Christmas movies I can think of that are favorites, but those are my top five for today!

So, my question for you:
Which of you have seen any of these?
What are your favorite Christmas movies?
Who's enjoying the Twelve Days of Christmas so far?

Thanks for stopping by! Join me tomorrow for part two of my story, Home for Christmas.

      Thanks for sharing your favorite! I've personally never seen the entire movie of 'It's a Wonderful Life'. I guess I should sometime! :D

  7. I've seen 1, 4, and 5. (#5 was just a couple weeks ago, actually!) We watch Charlie Brown Christmas pretty much every year... when I was little we would watch the Grinch, but my four younger brothers hadn't seen it till last year and I loved watching their reactions, lol! :)

    1. Oh, awesome! Was that the first time you had seen #5? ;)
      Yeah, us too!
      Haha, that's great! I like watching my siblings reactions to movies ;P
