It is only recently that I have come to appreciate this Christmas classic. Imagine how many people truly feel like Clark Griswold at the holidays? Underappreciated at the office, doing his best to provide a pleasant Christmas for his family - tree burns down, turkey burns, rude neighbors. I guess the older I become, the more I realize the true meaning of this movie.
It's A Wonderful Life
Who hasn't heard the memorable phrase, "Every time a bell rings an angel gets its wings!" Another meaninful holiday story that reminds us all to be thankful for all the blessings in our lives.
Miracle on 34th Street
I can't imagine needing to explain why this movie should be seen. Something about this film brings back memories of my childhood: the magic of Santa Clause, the holiday cheer & hopefullness of being a child during such a dreamlike time of year.
A Charlie Brown Christmas
I don't care how old you are - there is no excuse to miss this Charlie Brown Christmas tradition!

Okay - I'm generally not a huge Will Farrell fan (yes I know - you can boo me if you like!) This movie is just hysterical. Parents and kids can sit down to watch a comical Christmas treat and enjoy together.

So maybe this doesn't qualify as a "classic" - but what a great movie! What a great love story. It just makes me want to put on a cocktail dress and go a fabulous holiday party. Plus, Jude Law is pretty dreamy to watch for a couple hours.
Obviously there are many more, but these are just a few of my favorites I insist on watching each year! Feel free to share comments including your holiday favorites!
