24 Days 'til Christmas

Somehow, it's already the 1st of December! You know what this means? That there are only 31 short days left to enjoy 2010! This also means that the time has officially come to open the first window in your chocolate-calendar-countdown (or time to make an even better countdown of your own).

To help you get into the holiday spirit, I've complied a list of my Top-11 (couldn't narrow it down to an even 10) Christmas Movies: 1. It's a Wonderful Life (if you have time to watch only one movie this holiday season, you should make it this one); 2. Miracle on 34th Street (the original version); 3. Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer (he had a very shiny nose); 4. The Polar Express (beautiful animation); 5. Elf ("The best way to spread Christmas cheer is singing loud for all to hear!"); 6. Merry Christmas, Charlie Brown (you should also look into the soundtrack); 7. The Holiday (any chick flick enjoyed by both my fiance and I is automatically a good movie in my book); 8. I'll Be Home for Christmas (favorite scene: when one of characters is trying to serenade his wife in a diner and a cow outside starts mooing), 9. Frosty the Snowman (I never liked the sequel, but the first one is great); 10. The Family Stone (you may need a box of tissues for this one); and last but not least 11. Dr. Seuss' How the Grinch Stole Christmas (to get the Cindy Lou-Who look, all you've got to do is place a plastic bottle on your head, wrap your hair around it, and fasten with a hair tie).

So there you have it, folks. My best list of Christmas movies to keep you occupied the whole holiday season long!


  1. I love you. Mainly because you said 'my fiancé and I' and not only because YOU SAID THE WORD FIANCE, but because you used correct grammar.

  2. I love you, too! You know why? Because you took the time to notice the noun I used! (Please don't be upset with me for starting my sentence with the word because). Believe me, it wasn't easy...but it felt great to type that.
