Everyone has a favorite Christmas movie. It never feels like the holidays are here unless those special titles come out. Even if these movies are just playing in the background of a party, I feel in the holiday spirit. There’s something about them just tickle me and bring out the holiday season!
Harry Potter Movie Series
I read Harry Potter growing up so I love the books. Every Christmas these movies would play on marathon mode. Now it just doesn’t feel like Christmas until I watch them. Especially the first movie. There’s nothing better than going back to Hogwarts for the holidays!
The Lord of the Rings Movies
I remember these movies also playing on marathon mode. While I haven’t read the entire trilogy, I have fond memories of seeing these movies with friends. I have these movies on in the background while I work or clean. It’s even better while making Christmas cake!
How the Grinch Stole Christmas
This is the typical story of a cold hearted person warming up for the holidays. It’s a classic and I love the Jim Carrey the most. I saw this movie in theaters with my dad and brother. Everytime I watch this movie I think of my dad. He passed away in 2014 but that day at the movies will always be with me. My dad was never much of a Christmas person but he enjoyed this movie.
I didn’t have high expectations for this movie but boy was I wrong. It’s all about the true meaning of Christmas amidst all the modern day luxuries we have. It reminds me of the little things we should appreciate in life and this movie always makes me smile.
A Christmas Carol
Another holiday classic. I keep telling myself that I’ll read the book eventually… I like the animated version with Jim Carrey because the spirit of the past makes me laugh so much. You’ll just have to see it or believe me. I also really enjoy the Muppets version or the Mickey Mouse version. Any one of these three Christmas movies make me happy!
