I love the holidays and I love to celebrate them in full cold-weather comfort. That means coming in at the end of a long day, settling in with something nice and warm to drink and kicking back to watch holiday movies. Among the many classics that I own and enjoy, youíll find the holiday movies I simply canít live without.

White Christmas

A true classic, White Christmas, is Bing Crosby at his finest and has some beautiful music and costumes. The message is nice, too. In the movie, two performers happen to find a bit of romance with two sisters who have their own show. The four wind up in Vermont where they put on a very special Christmas performance and, of course, find a bit of love along the way.

Christmas Vacation

Chevy Chase is a comedic genius, at least in the goofiest sense of the word and Christmas Vacation is one of his finest works. Itís silly, itís stupid, itís the source of some of the best holiday movies lines Iíve ever heard and thatís just part of what makes it so appealing. A bumbling husband is trying to create the perfect Christmas for his family, but things just donít ever seem to go as planned.

Frosty the Snowman

Itís poorly animated and so very old, but itís a favorite for a great reason Ė itís one of my earliest holiday memories. Frosty comes to life and must journey to find cold weather in the north. During his journey, heís pursued by the bad magician trying to get the magic hat back for his own purposes. Without ruining the story too much, the magician looks to be winning at one point only to be thwarted by Santa.

The Grinch Who Stole Christmas

I have no problem with Jim Carreyís version, but the original version of the story just does much more for me. I like the narrated animated version of the Grinch, which is really just Dr. Suessí famous Christmas story brought to life. Itís touching and itís another classic Iím going to hang onto forever so my own kids can watch it someday.

Charlie Brown Christmas

The original Peanuts crew doesnít get enough credit for how brilliant their holiday movies are. I love the Thanksgiving Charlie Brown film, but the Christmas one is the most special to me. The spirit of the season shows up so nicely in that poor little Christmas tree Charlie Brown works so hard to set up nicely.

A Christmas Story

From the classic leg lamp and Red Rider BB gun, A Christmas Story is a bit edgier language-wise than some of the others on the list, but it is truly a classic. I laugh every time I see it and canít help saying more than a few of the lines with the characters. A little boy wants desperately to get a Red Rider BB gun for Christmas in the early 1950s and we get to follow Ralphie through his days at school and home with a slightly dysfunctional family you canít help but love.

I'm pretty sure it's Miracle On 34th Street because I just watched it a few days ago.

One of my favorites, which is also not listed here, is the 1984 version of A Christmas Carol...it has George C. Scott in it. But I haven't seen it for a few years. Also, Miracle On 34th Street was really good, the original one especially.

Aw, my favorite isn't listed.

It's Christmas On 34th St.

Or something like that, xD It's got an adorably smart girl in it, and ALL she wants for Christmas is a House, a Daddy and a Baby Brother...Like in the pictures of magazines. So cute!
