Hello, Hello Everyone. Today, because it's now the jolliest day of the year, I've been reminiscent. In particular, as it concerns Christmas films. Although somewhere close behind is the thought of finally getting to eat the fruity candy canes off of my grandmother's Christmas tree (I never cared much for peppermint but I'd eat the crappy ones for just one more holiday with her), and this one year in particular that my mother surprised me with a shallow, sleeping/breathing puppy toy in a box. I thought it was a dying pug (the box didn'thave any air holes and the "dog" was curled up with its eyes closed). So like any sensible child frightened near to death, I screamed, and chucked the thing by reflex, which made me feel even more guilty. I cried as I checked on it, everyone else laughed, and I finally realized I hadn't thrown a dying dog out of my lap. I became totally unable to trust opening another gift for the rest of the day after that🙃. But, anyway.. back to the movies. Since high school, Christmas has never really been "Christmas" for me. But I was always in a better mood, year after year, when I got to watch specific Christmas movies. As we all know, I'm a fan of film. Although, I'm disappointed to say that I find less of them to enjoy every year. Even when there's a constant flow of "new" content per week nowadays. At least in my case, I just add some of the good stuff to my DVD collection and enjoy those as time goes on and attempt to forget about the rest. So, I figured I'd share some of the Christmas movies I enjoyed most growing up that I still watch around the holiday (check out the videos w/ sound for song ). If you're currently in the Midwest like me, you probably got hit with that winter storm a couple days ago. Maybe you're enjoying the White Christmas this year. Perhaps you're even feeling the nostalgia and would like to wrap up under a blanket, drink hot chocolate, and enjoy one of these films yourself. - The Polar Express - Santa Claus is Comin' to Town - The Ultimate Christmas Present - Eight Crazy Nights - Grandma Got Ran Over by a Reindeer - The Year Without a Santa Claus - Last Holiday - Home Alone - The Santa Clause
- Jack Frost There's no way I'm the only 90s kid that still enjoys these movies, right? Also, sorry to anyone who was hoping to see any of The Grinch films above, and I'm so going to get some pitchforks for this, but I never liked a single one of those movies. Old or new. Not even the one starring Jim Carey (and I mean, who doesn't like Jim Carey?). Anyhoo. Keep warm, keep safe.
All love and blessings to you.
