Who doesn’t like Christmas movies? Christmas movies are touching, inspiring, and promote those warm fuzzies toward family. But how do you decide which ones? Well, word of mouth is the best way. I get new recommendations every year. Some I like, some I don’t like. You know us by now and you know what we like and what out wacky families like.
Can’t help it. They are great. All three are fun and Tim Allen is a great actor in these.
You knew this one would be on there. Who doesn’t love this movie?
While an Episcopalian Bishop is consumed by the idea of building a cathedral, his wife befriends an angel (Cary Grant) who guides her into showing her husband the true light.
Yes, it is in black and white and kids might be thrown off at first. Don’t worry, after a few minutes, they’ll be hooked.
No, really, this is good. A misfit daughter kidnaps a respectable guy to pose as her fiance at a family gathering.
This is a chic movie that is surprisingly good. It’s the same story as Groundhog Day. A young woman gets to relive a Christmas Eve day and gets to perfect her meeting of Mr. Right.
A magazine writer for the Home Ec section has perpetuated a ruse that she has a husband and family and can cook. She is asked to host a real traditional Christmas dinner for her editor. She has to scramble for a fake husband, baby and cook. This is also in black and white, but just stick with it.
Be prepared to cry. Charming story. I won’t even tell you about it. Just watch it.
Be prepared to cry intermittently throughout. A young girl spends her first Christmas with her father after her mother dies. She finds an injured reindeer and hides it in her barn. So cute and heartwarming!
I resisted watching this movie for years and years because the packaging makes it look boring. What a mistake. This is perhaps the best Christmas movie ever made. Based off a true story from a book of short memoir stories, which is even more excellent than the movie.
I did not like this when I first saw it. It is now the movie I watch the most during December. I love Hugh Laurie’s voice anyway (Great Expectations on audiobook) and he plays a big part in this. I love the family dynamics of Santa’s family and watching the elf that has a man crush on Steve.
