My Christmas Must-Watch Movie Collection

There are just some traditions I have to do each year, I'm sure you know that feeling that if you don't repeat that tradition then your holiday doesn't feel quite the same, or it feels incomplete. There are certain movies I have to watch, so for your Sunday viewing pleasure, these are my must-watch Christmas movies! Enjoy and have a Christmas cookie or two while you watch them!

The first is How the Grinch Stole Christmas (the cartoon version, I seriously don't like the Jim Carrey version)

The second movie is the Claymation Christmas. This is done entirely in clay and includes the California raisins. This is my dad's particular favorite!

A must-watch is White Christmas. Usually watched Christmas Eve growing up and my dad would say break out into song for the Sisters song and sing it to me and my sister.

Of course Elf!

Another great Christmas movie must-watch is Christmas Vacation!


A newly must-watch movie introduced to me by Sean is Holiday Inn!


What are your must-watch Christmas movies?

I love this list! I haven't ever seen the claymation one. I always watch the Grinch (one of my favorites) and A Christmas Story. But I always end up watching all the Christmas movies that come on TV around this time!

White Christmas and Holiday Inn are two my of my all-time favorites too! Funny that your dad sang the "sisters" song to you, haha!! And i've never seen the Jim Carrey version of The Grinch but i have a feeling i'd agree with you!

I cannot believe that you have Claymatian Christmas on your list!!! I have been watching that since I was REALLY little. And some parts always scared me just because of the creepy animation! Yes, we have it on VHS, but not on DVD.

Val said...

These movies are great...I can't wait for Christmas day so I can watch Christmas Story all day long.

Jamie Leigh said...
