I know Christmas is over and we are in a New Year, but I still have these movies in the back of my mind as long as it is FREEZING outside. These are some of my all time favorite movies to watch during the winter season. Christmas is my favorite holiday of the year and I love to carry on watching these movies well past Christmas. I’ve been known to watch them even into February LOL. I know, I very well may be the only person out there who does this! Hey, if it is still freezing or even snowing outside, it’s winter, and that means Christmas / Holiday movies to me! Give me a fireplace, twinkle lights, hot cocoa, and any of these movies and I am set!
Well, as I was saying, these are my Top 10 Favorite Winter Weather/Holiday Movies (in no particular order).
White Christmas – 1954. This has been one of my all time favorites for as long as I can remember. Bing Crosby is simply amazing in my book!
Miracle on 34th Street – While I like the 1947 version, I grew up with the 1994 version and it is the one I go back to always.
Jingle All The Way – 1994. Another movie I grew up watching and still love to this day.
The Grinch – 2000, One of the best and that’s that.
Home Alone 1 & 2 – 1990 & 1992. Technically this is 2 movies, but you just can’t watch one without the other! Grab the popcorn and hot cocoa, Marathon night!
The Family Stone – 2005. This movie is a good one for anytime of year. Sometimes around July, when I’m really missing Christmas, I’ll pull out this movie and it is just so fun. This movie will make you literally LOL and it just pulls you into this family, you really feel like you’re in their world for about 1 hour and 45 minutes LOL. Besides… Diane Keaton, Sarah Jessica Parker, and Dermont Mulroney (HELLO, My Best Friend’s Wedding)… need I say more… really though?
The Santa Clause 1 , 2, 3 – 1994, 2002, 2006. Tim Allen. Again, a movie marathon must! These movies are everything during the Christmas season!
The Polar Express – 2004. This movie is SO. MUCH. FUN. Seriously, I fell in love with this movie when I first saw it and I try to make sure I watch it every year before the cold weather passes!
Holiday Inn – 1942. Can you tell I love older movies? LOL. Bing Crosby and Fred Astaire. I love to watch this movie and then follow it up with White Christmas if I can. Love, Love, Love.
Elf – 2003. Definitely a modern day classic. This movie gives you all the ligshthearted, good feels a Christmas movie should. It reminds me that no matter what your age is, Christmas is a time that every person can and should truly enjoy.
BONUS – The Holiday – 2006. This movie is everything a traveler could want in a movie. It has travel, romance, comedy and yes, Christmas. Love This!
There are so many amazing movies out there. These are literally only a few that I try to watch every year. I love adding new ones to the list like, A Christmas To Remember (2016), A Dream of Christmas (2016), Marry Me At Christmas (2017)…. basically anything on Hallmark! LOL
I hope you are all enjoying the New Year so far, let me know if there’s anything you want me to talk about on here!
