Daily December 15: Christmas Movies

Love Christmas movies.  This one is an older one :)  I remember watching it as a kid.  We had it recorded off TV on a video cassette--anybody still know what those are?  It was an extremely grainy copy, but we watched it every year.  One year for Christmas my sister got all of us siblings a copy on DVD.  We watched it as a family on December first.  It was our first link in our Christmas chain.  Too fun! 
This is a beautiful Christmas movie.  We watch this the first Sunday after Thanksgiving every year to get us in the right mood for Christmas and to remind us of the real meaning.  I love Mary and Joseph in this film.

And who doesn't love this movie?  My kids have watched it 3 times already since Thanksgiving.  My favorite scene is the hot chocolate one.  I want hot chocolate like that!  Love the book too.

This is the version of Scrooge that my family always watched growing up.  It is a musical with Albert Finney.  It is my favorite version of "A Christmas Carol."  We usually watch it on Christmas Eve.  What are some of your favorite Christmas movies?

  1. Those are all such great movies! This year we got to watch Polar Express in 3-D. The entire train ride feels like a roller coaster. It was so fun!
