Top Ten...Christmas Movies

Time to get back on track with my Top Ten Tuesdays!

This week's topic is FAVORITE CHRISTMAS MOVIES
Tis the season to start watching all of these!

#10.
Frosty the Snowman
How do you not love Frosty? I get so excited when it comes on TV! 
Thumpitty Thump Thump! Thumpitty Thump Thump! Look at Frosty go! 

#9.
How the Grinch Stole Christmas
Another classic that I get pumped to watch every year, I mean his heart grows three sizes! 

#8.
Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer
Out of all the TV Christmas specials I get most excited for Rudolph! The frickin' elf wants to be a dentist! It's too cute and I've loved it since I was little! 

#7. 
Miracle on 34th Street (1947 version)
This movie is an absolute CLASSIC and I love it! The remake makes an appearance later on my list, but you HAVE to love the original!

#6. 
Elf
Who doesn't love Elf? This was an instant classic! "Buddy the elf, what's your favorite color?"
So damn funny! 

#5. 
The Santa Clause
Omigosh, I love this movie so much! Tim Allen is so dang funny! Watching this was a tradition with my mom & brother every year! 

#4. 
Love Actually
I could literally watch this movie every day and not get sick of it! In fact, in college me and my roommate had in on constant loop for at least two weeks. It's so cute and funny and I absolutely LOVE it! 


#3. 
Miracle on 34th Street (1994 version)
I've probably watched this movie 50 times. While the original is amazing, this one is just too much! Dylan McDermott is a babe! Mara Wilson is frickin' adorable. I love Elizabeth Perkins and the guy who plays Santa is PERFECT! This is one I will be introducing to Kenley early...like tonight! :)

#2.
Santa Bear's High Flying Adventure
This is an obscure one but is absolutely one of my FAVORITES. This super short cartoon was a TV special in 1987 and came with that year's Santa Bear...remember when Dayton's (back before it was Macy's) revealed a new Santa bear every year? Well, in 1987 he was a pilot and came with this movie AND I WAS OBSESSED! I still love it. My mom used to sing the song from the movie to me and I've already started singing it to Kenley. If you haven't seen it...you need to watch these videos NOW! You are welcome!



#1. 
Home Alone
Home Alone is not only my FAVORITE Christmas movie, but one of my favorite movies of all time. I can't even tell you how many times I've seen this movie or how often I quote it...
"Look what you did you little jerk"
"When I grow up and get married, I'm living alone!"
"This is it, don't get scared now"
"Hi-ya Pal"
"I wouldn't let you sleep in my room if you were growing on my ass"
Seriously, it doesn't get better than this movie! 


What's your all time favorite Christmas movie?

I love all of these, but I have to be honest... I've never seen the Santa bear one. Maybe I need to borrow it? :)

i am pretty sad to see that Christmas with the Kranks (another tim allen movie) didnt make the list, it's SO stupid funny, probably due to jamie lee curtis being the ugly sweater wearing, crazy loving mommy!!! if you have not seen it, get it- 5 bucks walmart special ;)

great top ten list! :)
