I know you've been wondering, so I'm going to tell you what my favorite Christmas movies are.
They are probably the same as most people, actually, because they are just downright good.
I really love Charlie Brown's Christmas. I don't know if that really qualifies as a movie or not, but I'm including it. It is my favorite of the Peanuts' specials. I love the dancing and Snoopy's attempts to win the house decorating contest. I love most of all that they get the real meaning of Christmas in there. And who doesn't love that tree?
A Wonderful Life is one I watch every year. I have it mostly memorized, I bet. I love it because it is about Hope. And it is about the beauty of life. I wish we all had the opportunity George had to see what life would be like if we didn't exist. And the beauty of friendship. People really caring for each other. I love that old show.
A Christmas Story is my favorite for a good laugh. It cracks me up every single time I watch it. When he imagines that the soap in his mouth will make him blind… and then… They'll Be Sorry. What kid hasn't had a similar thought? And I don't know how many times my mom has warned me that I would poke an eye out. How come we don't see one-eyed people running around everywhere if it's such a dangerous possibility? Tell me that.
As much as I love old movies, I could get through Miracle on 31st Street. I'm not sure why.
I like the Santa Claus movies with Tim Allen. I like Elf. The Christmas Vacation movie is funny, but not as funny to me as A Christmas Story. I like to watch A Christmas Carol. But none of them top my three picks.
