step into christmas (movies!)

so after my terrible, horrible, no good, very bad day yesterday, i needed to think of things that always cheer me up.  top of the list? christmas movies. i don't know why, but any time of year, any kind of movie remotely related to the holidays really makes me feel so much better. when i curl up on the couch, there are a few that are my absolute favorite christmas movies:

these are definitely ones i can watch over and over again. now, one of my absolute favorite christmas stories is "a christmas carol," and while i love the movies, i much prefer to read it. also, i really like to watch harry potter movies during winter...not sure why, it just seems to fit for me! so the next time i'm feeling down, i'll make myself a snuggle (hot chocolate and peppermint schnapps) and curl up on the couch with rox and watch one of these! what do you do to get back in the spirit?? do you have a favorite holiday movie?

(thanks to nina for inspiring this post)

I love love love How the Grinch Stole Christmas! My niece and I watch it every year together (we are watching it this Saturday and I can't wait!). My other fav besides Harry Potter A Muppet's Christmas Carol. Love the muppets.

Mmm hot chocolate and peppermint schnapps? Sounds like something I need to try asap. 8)

Home Alone is definitely a holiday favorite. And then there's this made for tv movie, All I Want for Christmas, that we taped on VHS when I was a kid. Incredibly corny and terrible recording quality, but I love it all the same!
