  1. My favorites are Its A Wonderful Life, A Christmas Story, Holiday Affair, Home Alone and National Lampoon's Christmas vacation. Sounds like you are going to have a busy and fun weekend! Have a great time!🎄

  2. I love almost every one of these movies!! I have actually never seen The Nightmare Before Christmas though, it looks scary and not Christmasey to me!

  3. I haven't watched the Family Stone in years, probably because it makes me cry! But the Holiday we are actually watching tonight!! xo, Biana -BlovedBoston

  4. These are all great! I recently watched Elf for the first time and I loved it! I also like classic ones like Grinch, Home Alone, Christmas Carol (newest one) and Jingle all the way :) I can't remember how it's called, but I used to love this one movie where a family - if I am not mistaken - tries to light up their house with million lights, so that it would be seen from the space. Maybe it's called Million Lights? Not sure... :) x

  5. I forgot about jingle All the Way - Sinbad is awesome :)

    Scrooged is one of our favs - I need to tell my hubs that's our Christmas Eve moving this year :)

  6. I MUST watch Christmas Vacation - that is a Christmas staple. I watched Jingle All The Way the other night and it was another good one.

    You've got some great suggestions, I might actually come back to your post over the weekend for some recommendations. :)

    Thanks hun.

  7. Elf is probably my favorite Christmas movie and it's so sad I haven't watched it yet this year!!

    Maybe I'll have to do so tonight when I'm baking my cookies.

  8. Can you believe I've never seen any of those classics?! Very excited to see my favorites on the list though! Planning on watching Love Actually tomorrow night! Happy weekend!

  9. I have never seen Polar Express or Scrooged.. I know, I'm so behind. But love The Holiday and Four Christmases!!!
