It just isn’t Christmas without them

We all have a few movies we must watch each and every Christmas to make it feel like the Holidays have arrived and give us that warm feeling that only Christmas can give.

This week’s challenge with Life with a Side of Coffee & Southern Beauty Guide is all about Christmas movies and I have a couple to share!

I love cheesy Hallmark, Lifetime, and ABC Family Christmas movies that come around this time of year and will watch several throughout the end of November & all of December.

My two favorite Christmas movies of all time though are these two:

It’s a Wonderful Life – nothing gives me more happy butterflies then this movie.  My favorite line from the movie is “Everytime a bell rings, an angel gets His wings”


Sadly I haven’t watched this yet this year, could be one of the reasons it just doesn’t feel like Christmas as much.  I need to watch this and soon!!

A Christmas Story – everyone loves this movie.  Its filled with lots of laughs and just weirdness, but heck it seems to fit most families.  You’ll shoot your eye out!!  Ho-Ho-Ho Boot into face to shove down slide.

Those are my two must movies of the Holiday season.  Great joy and laughter and warm butterflies combine when I watch both of these.

Now its not exactly a movie, but its one of my Christmas favorites and felt fit in with my favorite movies.  Its a Folgers commercial and I MUST watch it each Holiday season somehow, someway.  The new version of this commercial is okay, but it doesn’t hold a candle to the one from the 80’s.  It actually reminds me of me waiting in bed for my brother Stacy to get home for Christmas.

My all time favorite Christmas commercial:

    Do you know that I have never watched It’s A Wonderful Life all the way through? Need to change that starting this year!!!

    • *gasp* I can’t believe it. Yes you need to change it this year. Last year, or two, I finally watched A White Christmas and LOVED it.

    Angie… you need to fix Ocie… you need a forced watching!! lol And Tommy LOVES Elf… more than I and we both drive Jakob NUTS with it!! lol Ava just likes any and all christmas specials… she thinks that because they’re “specials” that she gets to watch every single one of them. Like if I turn off the tv or tell her it’s time to go she’ll say “but Mommy, it’s a Christmas Special!!!” lol

    • It’s true, its a special you just gotta watch. That’s my “best friend” miss Ava lol πŸ˜‰
