My Top 5 Christmas Movies

I love everything about the Christmas season, but one of my favorite parts is definitely all the awesome movies that I watch year after year. I actually haven’t gotten to watch any of these yet this year, so that’s definitely something I’m going to hit hard in the next few days! These are my top 5 favorites!

5. Home Alone 2

From Home Alone 2: Merry Christmas, ya filthy animal.

Classic. I think every kid that watched this movie growing up secretly thought it would be kind of awesome to get left behind by their family just because of all the cool stuff Kevin got to do.

4. The Year Without a Santa Claus

The Year Without a Santa Claus

To be completely honest, I have no idea why I like this movie so much but I do. It’s on ABC on Monday!

3. Elf

Elf

I’ve never met anyone that doesn’t love Elf. I’m especially partial to two characters: Mr. Narwhal and Arctic Puffin.

Hey buddy, wanna pick some snowberries?
“Not now, Arctic Puffin!”

Bye buddy, hope you find your dad!

Gotta love it.

2. Charlie Brown Christmas

Christmas story as told by Linus

Linus is tied for my favorite Peanuts character anyway (with Woodstock!), but he just gets me every time in this one. What a good guy.

AND NUMBER ONE…

DRUMROLL PLEASE…

1. A Christmas Story

Randy from a Christmas Story
Arguably the best line in the entire movie: “Randy lay there like a slug; It was his only defense.” I laugh every time.

AMC starts showing this movie at 7 PM on Christmas Eve and plays it nonstop for the next 24 hours, and my dad and I watch it for most of that time. Seriously, we’ve already talked about buying an espresso maker so we can stay up to actually watch every single minute of it… And we weren’t kidding. We basically have this movie on in the background no matter what we’re doing. It’s probably one of my favorite movies ever, but definitely my favorite Christmas movie!
