Top 10 Christmas Movies

I read a top 10 list of Christmas Movies that was absolutely ridiculous! Who ever thought of Die Hard as a Christmas movie???

So I decided that the world should know what the actual top 10 Christmas Movies are... by the expert, me of course.

#10 National Lampoons Christmas Vacation
I didn't discover how great this movie is until I married Honey Bear. He and his sister quote this movie verbatim. I have a new found love for poor old Clark Griswald.

#9 The Santa Clause
I just love the scene when they are going to bed that first night at the North Pole in their new P.J's and Judy the elf brings them the perfect cup of Hot Cocoa

#8 Home Alone
This movie came out when I was a kid, and I still think it is Hilarious. Also, the Christmas message, movies, and images are iconic, and now a part of my Christmas past.

#7 The Polar Express
Honey Bear actually says that this is his favorite movie. He actually gets mad if the kids put it on with out letting him know, so he can watch it with them. All I have to say is: Tom Hanks for President.

#6 White Christmas
The best selling single of all time speaks for itself. Every time I watch it I am mesmorised with that gal's tapping abilities and I try to see if I can see her foot move during the "Choreography" scene. And of course there is the guys singing "Sisters"... love this one!

#5 How the Grinch Stole Christmas
Thanks to this movie I have never eaten Roast Beef, only Roast Beast. And Max is my all time favorite movie dog.

#4 Miracle on 34th Street
It is possible that I love this movie so much because the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade takes a key role in the beginning. I do think that he played the best Santa ever on the Silver Screen.

#3 The Muppet Christmas Carol
If you know where I can buy a CD of the sound track let me know! I LOVE IT!!!
Really, all I have to say about this movie is I want to get some, "cheeses for the meeses!"

#2 Its a Wonderful Life
Here is where I finally agree with the original top 10 list. Yes, this sure is #2!!!

#1 A Christmas Story
Here again the original list had it right. Thank you TBS, for always playing this one for 24 hours on Christmas. It just wouldn't be Christmas without the glow of electric sex from the front window, yellow eyes, soap poisoning, A +++++++, a pink bunny suite, 785 smelly hound dogs, and of course... a red rider beebe gun with a compass in the stock and this thing that tells time.

That's my top 10, what do you think? What's your top 10?


  1. I would have to bump 'The Grinch' up to number one. That is our all time favorite. We have the ENTIRE movie memorized. (And we even have a leg lamp in our front window!)


    That will be mine!

  2. Oh, and one more comment on something that has been bugging me:

    Tom Hanks will NOT be getting my vote for president, after calling Mormons 'UNAMERICAN'.
    I think not, Tom.
    We're apple pie, my friend.

  3. I did not know he said that!!! I revoke my vote for Tom... what a dissapointment.
