Blogmas: Top Five Christmas Films

This year, I’m going to participate in a (very selective) Blogmas: a challenge to try to post as many Christmas-related blog posts throughout the month. I don’t have a lot of down time to participate, but I will post as much as I can!

Without further ado, here are my favorite Christmas films:

National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation: Without a doubt my all-time favorite! I don’t know why this hasn’t made it to any of the other lists I’ve read. A slapstick comedy about how everything goes wrong at Christmas in the Griswold household during a big family holiday. I even have a shirt that says: “Kiss my ass, kiss his ass, kiss your ass, Happy Hanukkah.”

Elf: A modern classic everyone loves where a man raised as an elf ventures to New York to find his family.

A Christmas Story: A classic classic about the woes of Christmas as an adolescent. (“You’ll shoot your eye out!”). Fun fact: Ralphie has a small role in Elf as Ming Ming, a worker elf!

It’s a Wonderful Life: Need I say more? A beautiful story about the value of one life everyone can appreciate.

Home Alone: Both the original and the sequel are equally funny, chaotic and heart-warming. Plus, who doesn’t love Tim Curry? (“Merry Christmas, ya filthy animal”)
