This Is My Must Watch Christmas Movies List

Happy Thursday, everyone!!!
Light up your Christmas trees and fill up your stockings because there's officially 5 more days till Christmas.
Today, I have something really fun in store for you guys.

When the holiday season starts, it's always a MUST for me to watch all of my favorite holiday movies.
It's a really great way to bond with your whole family.
It's also my way of jump-starting the Holiday season.
With the freezing cold weather outside, there's nothing better than staying home, all cuddled on the couch with your comfiest blankie, watching your favorite Christmas movie while sipping on a heaping cup of peppermint mocha latte. 
(Yup, that's my new favorite Christmas drink.)

I wanted to share with you guys a few of my MUST WATCH CHRISTMAS FILMS, starting from my so-so favorites to my all-time favorite. :D
My holidays are not complete without watching these movies at least once. :D

10. Love Actually

So this movie is about 6 guys and 4 girls who fall in love with each other. 
They spend Christmas together... 
Uhm, yeah. Okay, okay, you guys caught me. 
I haven't actually watched Love Actually, BUT it is my sister's favorite Christmas movie so I thought I'd include it in my list. (Actually, she forced me. Sshh.)
However, I will definitely be watching it this year. I have to see what the fuss is all about.

9. Four Christmases


Oh my gosh, my siblings and I loooooove this movie. 
If you're looking for a good laugh, this is a great movie to watch. 
Vince Vaughn and Reese Witherspoon together in a movie is a complete laugh trip all the way.

8. Elf

"The best way to spread Christmas cheer is singing loud for all to hear."

Who doesn't love Elf? I mean c'mon.
It's a Will Ferrell movie. It doesn't get better than that.

7. Mickey's Twice Upon A Christmas

"Hey, aren't we innocent into proven guilty?"

I watch this movie EVERY year!!!
My brother and I love this so much. I know it's kind of childish, but we don't care.
It has 5 different stories and all of them teaches kids good morals and character. 

*I wasn't able to find the trailer. But here is the full movie if you would like to watch it.*

6. The Ultimate Christmas Present

"Any time you say 'trust me', I wind up either in detention or on a missing person's list."

I first saw this movie on Disney Channel a couple years ago. I think I was around 10 or 11 years old.
Ever since then, it has become a tradition to watch it every year. 

5. The Polar Express

"Seeing is believing, but sometimes the most real things in the world are the things we can't see."

Ah, this movie is just epic! Everything about it is absolutely amazing.
The graphics, the music, the plot, EVERYTHING! 
My favorite line is what Tom Hanks said as the conductor, "The thing about trains, it doesn't matter where they're going. What matters is deciding to get on."
I just think it has such a powerful meaning especially with life.

4. Christmas with the Kranks

"You're skipping Christmas?! Isn't that against the law?"

One time, I was just randomly browsing my TV Guide list, when I came across this movie. 
I thought I'd give it a chance, so I watched it...
And the rest is history.

3. Holiday in Handcuffs

"There may not be such a thing as a perfect job, a perfect life, or a perfect family, but there is such a thing as a perfect moment. So I take back what I said. Doing one crazy thing probably does make you crazy, but it also can make you happy."

My sister got me so obsessed with this feel good movie.
Mario Lopez and Melissa Joan Hart have an amazing chemistry. They're really cute together.
My favorite part would be the ending. 
But you have to watch it to see. ;)

2. Home Alone

"Keep the change, ya filthy animal."

I think it's safe to say that Home Alone is everybody's favorite. Am i right or am i right?
I also love Home Alone 2!!! Not so much the third one though or the ones after.
Does anyone else hate when the whole cast of a movie is changed? I really hate it when that happens. 

1. Serendipity

"Well, if we're meant to meet again, we'll meet again. It's just not the right time now."

Aaahhhh, we finally got to my ULTIMATE FAVORITE Christmas movie. 
If there's one thing I truly believe in (aside from God, of course), it's destiny. 
I truly believe that everything happens for a reason and also, that if it's meant to be, it will happen someway, somehow.
I can't even explain how much I love this movie. My sister and I HAVE to watch it every Christmas. It's a total must!
I'm actually going to borrow the DVD at the library tomorrow. (I don't know why I don't own the DVD.)

What's your favorite movie to watch during Christmas time?
