"Gold, Frankensence, and Myrtle". Best girl-on-girl scene in years.

It's a Wonderful Life although Die Hard seems to have a huge amount of fans for some reason.

Die Hard

Bad Santa

The one where the kid is going to shoot his eye out.

While You Were Sleeping is always comforting.

My new favorite thing is Merry Freakin Christmas. It’s really brilliantly thought out.

If anyone is into archaeology and history, a few years ago I found this movie on one of the history channels called The Story of the First Noel. It’s narrated by Roger Moore and I only caught the first half but here’s the description from Amazon:
An inspiring 90 minute original special chronicling the astonishing events that are said to have occurred during the Holy Family’s perilous journey to Bethlehem. This special also explores evidence of actual miracles that occurred after their pilgrimage. Shot entirely on location in Israel, Egypt and Jordan, historical sites are utilized as the produces of the special, retrace the footsteps of the Holy family and reenact the virgin birth.

It hasn’t been on tv again so I’m waiting for my dvd to arrive.

And Elf, Love Actually, It’s a Wonderful Life, Christmas Vacation, Rudolph, Funny Farm -am ordering that next because it’s not streaming anywhere :(

Any Christmas tv show episodes?

Truthseeker said...

@SharperTeeth I swore no one but me thought While you were Sleeping was the perfect Christmas movie. I love it and it is always the 1st one I look for when I want to start getting in the spirit, another small but favorite of mine is Bed of Roses.
But other than those, Polar Express, Die Hard, Home Alone, and all of the hokey harlequin romance christmas movies on Hallmark, I binge them all month long, and HATE those kind of stories any other time of year.

Elissa said...

Most favorite movie: A Christmas Story. Gotta love Peter Billingsley.

Also still love the old stop-motion classics, Rudolph The Red Nosed Reindeer, Santa Claus Is Coming To Town, and The Year Without A Santa Claus (Miser Brothers, yay!)

Jenifer Walsh said...

The Ref

Lynne said...

A Christmas Story ("Those icicles have been known to kill!") and The Bishop's Wife. Loretta Young was lovely, and so was Carey Grant!

Dotty Settler said...

Christmas Vacation

Alexandria Anna said...

Lately Star Wars since its released in december lol. Other than that Home alone, Grinch and Christmas vacation, it's always on tv, since I can remember 😊

sconzey said...

It's a terrible film, but there's a special place in my heart for Love Actually because it was the movie my wife and I watched on our first date back when we were teenagers.

Dog Mom said...

Christmas movies I must see each year:

A Christmas Story
It's A Wonderful Life
Love Actually
Elf
Some years... Die Hard...I can't help it I really like Bruce Willis in that.

PapayaSF said...

Christmas in Connecticut (1945)

Tricia13 said...

👍👍👍👍👍 the movie “Love Actually “ has pretty poignant moments- and I love English humour

Sharper Teeth said...

@Truthseeker I swear, my mom cannot eat mashed potatoes without saying, "These mashed potatoes are so creamy!" It's so quotable.

Kate said...

@tricia love actually! Something about that movie. Watch it every year! The wrapping scene is my fave!

Kate said...

I'll check it out!

Tricia13 said...

Oh me too Kate- Rowan Atkinson made the film by a cameo..... he and the Late,Great Alan Rickmanb(who suffered through most of the soundtrack lol). I did love the use of “Here with Me”/Dido and Andrew Lincoln’s meltdown however

Stephanie said...

I reall loved Nativity (the first one).
I even cried ���� and Im usually not the type for movies like that (Fargo the series- with Freeman,too- is more my perfect winter movie ;)

Scandi Sanskrit said...

WTH? 😂😂😂😂

I like you. 🖤

texasrose said...

Bad Santa (but Bad Santa II sucked)

Alexandria Anna said...

Digital Snail - Great point!!! Eyes Wide Shut really is a hell of a Christmas movie! Seriously!! It's because in the movie there is a loooot of christmas trees and colorful christmas lights, one of the most awesome decors I've ever seen in a film. Really get's You in Christmas mood. Totally kids friendly, I've watched it first time when I was like 8 and look how normal I am, lmao.

Pink_Palace said...

Miracle on 34th Street, watched it w/my mother for years. I love all the old movies that you can usually just find on Turner Classic Movies every year. And, I am a sucker for all the Hallmark movies, because I LOVE my Christmas movies. They are simple feel good movies...

Count Jerkula said...

CeeKay: i cant stand Ferrell, Elf is the only movie of his i habe watched all the way through, and i have seen it a lot. I may be a lil biased, cause i am a big Artie Lange fan and blonde Zooey makes my pecker tingle.

Mzfatneck said...

Yes! Love that movie

Tom Siebert said...

Randal Kleiser's "The Gathering," with Ed Asner and Maureen Stapleton and a cast of familiar faces, is the most wonderful of Christmas movies. Great music, too. Really warm and magical.

And "Die Hard."
