The Grinch Who Stole Christmas - 1966
For those who need a story with a moral in the end....I also think the fact that Molly looks like a brunette Cindy Lou Who makes this story a little more heart warming than usual this year.
Rudolph the Red Nose Reindeer - 1964
For traditionalists who like their men and reindeer sexist and their abominable snow men with a heart of gold. I also revel in the fact that the explorer Yukon Cornelius is drunk the entire movie
Elf - 2003
The new classic...a romantic comedy meets good old fashioned cheesy New York Christmas Story.
Frosty the Snowman - 1954
I've already told you about the drinking game...This is a great classic and only a half hour long.
National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation - 1989
John Hughes answer to a Christmas Movie (I guess Home Alone also counts), but this one is better. I fell in love with this movie when I went to see it for Girl Guides for our Holiday Party and never looked back.
As for us and Christmas - I think we're ready...
We wrapped the
minions errr gifts...*
We trimmed the cupcake tree**
And Most Importantly: We chilled the wine!
Happy Holidays to you and your family!
*Please note: wrapping your children in cellophane may be funny, but it probably isn't the best parenting.
**Did I make those myself? No, but they were hand purchased at Loblaws with love and care.
