"Listen to the mustn'ts, child. Listen to the don'ts. Listen to the shouldn'ts, the impossibles, the won'ts. Listen to the never haves, then listen close to me... Anything can happen, child. Anything can be."

-Shel Silverstein



Oh man, I can't tell you how excited I am to watch some of these movies. There are just some movies that you HAVE to watch around Christmas time, and these are the ones that top my list:

While You Were Sleeping
Thanks to Mom, I always associate this movie with Christmas. Why? you ask. Because she used to make us watch it every year! It's a good thing I like it, otherwise I might have some ill feelings toward it :)

How the Grinch Stole Christmas
This is, hands down, the best holiday movie in my opinion. Of course, I love the original also, but this one is my favorite.

This is one of the funniest movies. Almost every scene has a part that will make you laugh. Two of my favorite quotes: "Bye Buddy, I hope you find your dad" and "Did you hear that?" The second one comes after at least a minute long burp and the first one is said by one of the animals in the North Pole. His voice is hilarious!

Happy Feet
I actually just watched this movie last weekend while I was cleaning my room. I bought it last year the day after Thanksgiving for probably $3 and that was money well spent!

It's A Wonderful Life

Meet Me In St. Louis
This isn't really a Christmas movie, but I guess I associate it with the holiday because Judy Garland sings "Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas."

The Family Stone
Yes, this is a slightly depressing movie, but it's an awesome one. I think the part that I like most about this movie is the cast. It's full of well-known people!

I can't believe we only have a little over a month before Christmas! It's so exciting!!


  1. hehe, I'm with Sara! (I like to get my own cheese pizza and enjoy)

    I love the other movies you chose as well - I think while you were sleeping takes place during christmas enough to be considered a christmas movie.

    I've been known to answer the phone with "Buddy the Elf, what's your favorite color?"

    And I'd have to add National Lampoons christmas vacation and Love Actually to the list :)
