I’ve said before that I LOVE Christmas, from Black Friday to Epiphany is Christmas for me. Besides listening to Christmas music one of the main things I do during this time is watch Christmas movies! Whether they’re old, classic, new, Santa-themed, Christian themed, it doesn’t matter I watch them all! Other than new episodes of my the tv shows I watch Christmas movies are pretty much the only things I watch during the month of December. It really helps get me ready for Christmas, even if they don’t directly remind me of the birth of Christ.
There are a lot of classic Christmas movies I really enjoy, in fact I can’t think of a single famous one I’ve seen that I didn’t really enjoy. If I had to pick a favorite one it would probably be “Holiday Inn.” (If you’ve never heard of it, don’t worry a lot of people I know haven’t) It was the first movie to feature the song “White Christmas” and is about an entertainer (played by Bing Crosby) who decides to open up an Inn in Connecticut that’s only open on Holidays for a show. The movie takes place over the course of a year, and features all the major holidays with songs to go a long with them.
I couldn’t write a post about Christmas movies without at least mentioning “A Christmas Carol.” I’ve pretty much every version out there and love all of them. The story is so powerful and meaningful, and I think every actor who plays Scrooge nails it, from Michael Caine, Kelsey Grammer, George C Scott, Patrick Stewart, and my family’s favorite version with Albert Finney. Below is my favorite song from the musical version with Albert Finney, my family quotes this song often throughout the year.
Day 345: Thank you Lord for Christmas movies, they help me get ready for Christmas and give me something fun to watch leading up to Christmas.
