My favorite Christmas movies

I just realized tonight that I have not seen one Christmas movie yet! I have got to fix that this weekend!! Since I'm through with school until January 11th, I should have more time for ME. Yay!! I'm looking forward to some long hot baths, steaming cups of hot chocolate and nights spent by the fire watching Christmas movies. Here are three that are an absolute must. They are my very favorites!

Favorite part: Ralphie FINALLY gettin' to talk to Santa and then not being able to remember what he wants!!

The Waltons will always have a special place in my heart. They were such a HUGE part of my childhood!! Favorite part: John Boy and Hawthorne are at the Baldwin house and they are just a'singing and then all of a sudden, Hawthorne goes, "Miss Emily, Miss Mamie, we got to have some gas." I crack UP every dang time. Also LOVE LOVE LOVE Mary Ellen putting that bird's nest in the tree.

Favorite part: ANY scene Cousin Eddie is in. What a nut!! I also love Clark's flipout at the end about his Christmas bonus and when he's done, he goes, "Hallelujah holy sh!t where's the Tylenol?"

I don't really consider Frosty, Rudolph and Charlie Brown Christmas movies. They're more like Christmas specials. The three of them, along with Nestor, The Long-Eared Christmas Donkey (who can get through that one with dry eyes?? Not me!!) and Santa Claus Is Coming To Town are all waiting patiently in my DVR. I'll get to ya, I'll get to ya!! Gah!! :)

I'm giving honorable mentions to A Christmas Carol (the George C. Scott version), Home Alone, The Holiday, Jack Frost, Elf and one that you wouldn't think would be a Christmas movie but Larry and I both like it, Reindeer Games. And while It's A Wonderful Life and Miracle On 34th Street are great Christmas movies and I love them both, I'm taking a break from them this year. It feels like I JUST saw them.

What are your favorite Christmas movies and have you gotten to watch them yet??
