Cotton-Headed Ninny Muggins



Now that December is here, people can no longer snarl at me when I mention Christmas, so today I want to talk Christmas movies!
I have been watching an average of one Christmas movie per day for the last month, but no Christmas movie will ever top 'ELF' in my mind. It is such a heartwarming and funny film!

I usually watch 'ELF' an average of three or four times every Christmas season, I can never get tired of it. It's also, in my humble opinion, the most quotable Christmas movie of all-time. 


Do you have a Christmas movie that you have to watch every year, without fail? What is your favorite movie of all-time?

  1. To answer frankly, no. I don't watch Christmas movies. I don't have the time (but it seems I have time to write this). To make this a slightly positive comment, I do fondly remember seeing National Lampoon's something or other with Chevy Chase putting Christmas lights on the house. Actually, I will check to see if that is on, as it was a good laugh and I can't remember it really well.

  2. Elf is a fun movie. We always watch A Christmas Carol and How the Grinch Stole Christmas. (The classic cartoon, not the horrible live action film.)

  3. there aren't many movies I'll watch twice let alone more than that, I'll have to see if I can find elf to see

  4. Oh yes, it is a great movie. Christmas re-runs can be enticing too! Nice thoughts Keith!

  6. LOVE this movie. And you're right about it being the most quotable :)

    "He's an angry elf"

  7. Christmas, even only December invite us to enter Home and stay. Safe and Warm. And movies are part of the modern rituals that "make" us stay there.
    I love Christmas themed movies but what I love most is that movie you catch when you're not expecting - you know you're baking cookies and while making the icing you turn the tv and there's one of those Lifetime movies of a widow with two impossible cute and sweet little daughters who are going to be homeless until the owner of the home - who happened to be visiting them to deliver the eviction note - stays snowbound and falls in love with mother and children and they live happy ever after. - didn't I mention that my taste for movies could be the end of our relation? it must have been in one of those messages that got lost ahahah maybe you can skip the snarling and just pay me the nevermind ;) - I like how the high flyer falls for the simple ways of the family celebrating the meaning of Christmas. I like the Happy Ever After idea. And I like that the warmth and smile it put on my heart and lips will stay even when Advent Candles are completely burnt out.
    Enjoy December, Keith. Love The Movies. Live The Season.
    Yours,
    Teresa

    PS - just hope you don't have all the messages stored for publishing... if you do, don't publish them :D

  8. Elf is a great movie, one of the only ones where I can stand Will Ferrell and his big man child routine that he uses in almost every single movie he's in.

    I watch Die Hard, Gremlins and Home Alone 1 and 2 every year. All Christmas themed at least lol

    ReplyDelete
  9. We don't have any Christmas movie traditions, but we do have a tradition of watching Gary Cooper's Sergeant York every New Year's Eve...we have some parts more-or-less memorized.

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  11. Finally Christmas is here!

    Enjoy your Christmas time Keith:)

    ReplyDelete
  12. National Lampoon's Christmas is always good for some laughs - no matter how many times my husband and I watch it. Growing up, my favorites were the old animated versions of The Grinch, Frosty, Rudolph, Charlie Brown. Oh, and A Christmas Carol, the one starring George C Scott. :)

    ReplyDelete
  13. Polar Express is my choice! Of the old, old movies.....the original A Christmas Carol! Actually, Keith, I have never seen Elf. Time to check it out, I guess.

    ReplyDelete
  14. I have to say I pretty much love all the Christmas movies ~ I could watch them non stop through December as well. Love the new and the Old ~ yes Elfs a fav, also the oldies like Christmas on 24th street . Just watched a fairy new one last night that was on demans TV ~Madeas Christmas with Tyler Perry as Madea oh my Madea cracks me up.

    ReplyDelete
  15. I always loved to watch movie "12 Months", Keith.
    It's about a poor stepdaughter which was sent by her stepmother nto the woods at Christmas time in order to collect lilies of the valley. But lilies of the valley do not bloom in December, and when the poor girl met 12 months (handsome men) in the woods she asked them to transform December in April to gather lilies of the valley for the evil stepmother.
    Enjoy December, Keith

  16. It makes it now my Must-watch-one ... Glad to know that you are enjoying the end of this year .... Smiles!!

    ReplyDelete
  17. Hi Keith .. nope - I'll watch something if family/friends put one on .. and I can't stand Elf .. sorreeeeee!! cheers Hilary

    ReplyDelete
  18. I like to watch every christmas-time, in December, The Grinch (how would another person write here "that horrible live action film), the 3 films with Tim Allen (sorry, I only know the German titles, and don't know if they are the same in English)

    ReplyDelete
  19. I'll watch any Christmas related movie I can find.

    ReplyDelete
  20. I just saw the previews for this and it did look cute (I've never seen it). I love Rudolph, Frosty, and Charlie Brown Christmas. My youngest loves Polar Express and that's becoming a holiday tradition. :)

    ReplyDelete
  21. Elf is definitely at the top of my list. I refused to watch it until December because I want to keep it special...but IT'S TIME! Yay!!

    ReplyDelete
  22. No. We are not movie people, but we both love to watch all the Christmas specials on TV. Totally love Christmas music.

    Now I am curious about Elf, and may have to watch it!

    Big hugs, honey...

    ReplyDelete
  23. Personally, my fave xmas movies are It's a Wonderful Life and the original black-and-white Christmas Carol with Alastair Sim. I try to watch both every xmas.

    ReplyDelete
  24. I love Christmas movies and hubby thinks I am nuts lol I love the Hallmark channel-this year they started running Christmas movies October 31st I think it was-so I check for my favorites and on the weekends they run 24 hours-love it I have too many favorites-I love most of them

    ReplyDelete
  25. I have several that I watch every single year and even in the middle of the year if I get a chance...just watched The Holiday a few nights ago. I adore It's a Wonderful Life and love to watch all the Charlie Brown stuff too!

    ReplyDelete
  26. My husband is obsessed with A Christmas Story and Die Hard, so we watch those every year. :)

    ReplyDelete
  27. I like Elf, too. I love Christmas Vacation:)

    ReplyDelete
  28. I too like Elf :) Good idea to watch the Christmas movies too; we did that one year with the kids, gathered all of the Christmas themed movies and watched them one nightly as we had time. Fun :)

    Call me silly, but I like the short movie of A Charlie Brown Christmas :)

    betty

  32. Christmas Story!

    All time movie, Same Time Next Year

    ReplyDelete
  33. My favorite Christmas movie of all times is 'It's a wonderful life' :-)

    I plan to to watch this movie 3 or 4 times, especially on Christmas evening. Oh and I love 'It's a Charlie Brown Christmas' .... :-)

    Believe it or not I haven't seen 'Elf'.... :-)

    ReplyDelete
  34. You may be shocked when I say this but...I've never actually watched Elf. Every year I have to watch Prance, Charlie Brown Christmas, and The Santa Clause.

    ReplyDelete
  35. I like ELF as well. And I watch The Holiday and Love Actually every December. And the Harry Potter series. And on Christmas Eve Dirty Dancing. It is not a Christmas movie but it is my tradition. :)

    ReplyDelete
  36. Any thing by *MASH* team, now that is funny.

    ReplyDelete
  37. I don't really have an all time favorite but I do always watch A Christmas Story every year.
    I like the Bishops Wife but have only watched it once and that was last year but I plan on watching it this year.
    Thanks for that kind comment. Glad you liked the photo!!!

    ReplyDelete
  38. I love Elf and also watch it anytime year round. I also like A Christmas Carol and The Grinch Who Stole Christmas and the Hallmark Channel Christmas movies. What a great way to escape to happiness!! Hugs.

    ReplyDelete
  39. Nope, don't watch Christmas movies. Used to years ago, but just got out of the habit. We don't even decorate anymore. The kids are gone and we just don't have to do that anymore.

    Have a fabulous day and enjoy your Christmas movies. ☺

    ReplyDelete
  40. I enjoyed Elf when I saw it and it was the first time I saw my f-in-l laugh out loud. For that alone it will be one of my favorites and I aim to watch it again this Christmas.

    ReplyDelete
  41. I like Grinch and A Christmas Carol. My kids love Arthur Christmas. Oh, and I love Miracle on 34 th Street.

    ReplyDelete
  42. I've never seen "Elf" maybe I can find it on Netflix.

    ReplyDelete
  43. I've not seen "elf" in ages but do have some others I usually watch. Some form of Scrooge, "Jingle All the Way", "The Christmas Story" and often we watch "Polar Express".

    ReplyDelete
  44. I don't have a favorite Christian movie as such ... but yeah, I am looking forward to Christmas :-)

    ReplyDelete
  45. Not movies but I do love watching Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer and A Charlie Brown Christmas. I almost always have to watch White Christmas and, for some reason, I always want to watch Oliver, although it has nothing to do with Christmas.

    ReplyDelete
  46. Hi Keith! I haven't seen "Elf," so I'll have to look for it! I do love the Thanksgiving/Christmas season. I love snow and winter too. My husband who is becoming more and more conservative calls me a bleeding heart liberal, but somehow we manage to transcend our political views! We've even trusted each other to turn in our ballots. I always liked the Nutcracker at Christmas, but that was on stage or on my record player. My parents gave the record to me for my second grade Christmas because I loved the music so much. Have a good one!

    ReplyDelete
  47. Believe it or not, I have never seen Elf. I know, slap me with a splintered ruler! I will be sure to watch it this year, I promise! My favorite Christmas movie is 'It's a Wonderful Life'. I just love the message of this movie. My second favorite is 'Lampoon's Christmas Vacation'. It most closely resembles my life. He he.

    ReplyDelete
  48. I have never seen Elf - and don't do Christmas movies. And believe me, people as disorganised as I am can still snarl at the mention of Christmas - even when it is nearly here. Perhaps particularly when it is nearly here.

    ReplyDelete
  49. A Christmas Story. Haven't missed a year since my kids were little and it never fails to make us laugh.

    ReplyDelete
  50. I honestly couldn't tell you what my favourite Xmas movie would be. I love them all :)

    ReplyDelete
  51. I have a lot of favorite Christmas movies! But, somehow I have missed this Elf movie! I must look for it when it comes on again!

    ReplyDelete
  52. Don't laugh, but I like the part where he belches at the table. Dunno why, but I giggle at that every time.

    My favorite, even tho you didn't ask, is Polar Express And Bud and I just watched a very good one, The Christmas Candle....British movie and very heart warming.

    ReplyDelete
  53. I've never seen the entire film (and you are still friends with me, imagine that!) but maybe one of these days I will. Not sure what my all time favorite movie is. I like everything from It's a Wonderful Life and Little Shop Around the Corner to Miracle. Winter weather always makes me want to spend more time inside watching them too.

    ReplyDelete
  54. I haven't seen that movie Keith ~ I don't have a favorite Christmas movies but we enjoy watching Home Alone 1 and 2 every year ~ Have a good week ~

    ReplyDelete
  55. Can you believe that I have not seen "Elf" in its entirety? Only bits and pieces of it. If I begin to name my favorite Christmas movies, it will most definitely indicate my age.:-) I really just enjoy all of them!:-)

    ReplyDelete
  56. I watch Elf and White Christmas every year, but my all-time favorite is It's A Wonderful Life.

    Love,
    Janie

    ReplyDelete
  57. So many of our friends watch Elf each year as a holiday tradition. Would you believe that I have never seen it? But I plan to rectify that shortly, I will watch it this year!

    ReplyDelete
  58. I dont think I've seen Elf...
    Will look out for it!
    Fav films at Christmas?.. Shrek.. Wizard of Oz, Grinch, Magnificent Seven, Toy Story, .Disneys Aladdin, White Christmas :)

    ReplyDelete
  59. Oh I will be doing my top 10 favourite Christmas films and "It's A Wonderful Life" tops it by far!!!! It is such an excellent film and shows George Bailey how wonderful his life truly is and how much his life affected others. I always cry at the end out of joy. Elf is funny, Love White Christmas and Holiday Inn and Going My Way

    ReplyDelete
  60. I should watch that movie, it sounds like fun! Favortite Christmas movies, I can't think of anything right now..maybe Disney's:) Have great day, Keith

    ReplyDelete
  61. I'm not much for Christmas movies or the holiday.

    ReplyDelete
  62. I JUST WATCHED ELF LAST NIGHT! This is the kind of movie that you never get tired of. There is so much about this show that I love. I can watch it three times during the Christmas season, like you (sometimes I even watch it before the season starts). My favorite movie of all is White Christmas, and I look forward to watching it soon.

    THE BEST WAY TO SPREAD CHRISTMAS CHEER
    IS SINGING LOUD FOR ALL TO HEAR!!!

    Have a wonderful week, Keith.

  63. Shirley Temple comes to mind when I think of Christmas movies. No particular title in mind, though. Handel's Messiah isn't a movie but it is the one MUST SEE every year at this time. It's fun getting to know the things that inspire your posts. Slowly, we have put together quite a comprehensive package of what makes you tick :)

    ReplyDelete
  64. I have not seen Elf yet but will make a point to. I have a really hard time watching a movie twice. There are two that I will watch more than once but they aren't Christmas movies. Gone with the Wind and Never Cry Wolf. At least NCW has a lot of snow in it. Sorry.

    ReplyDelete
  65. Wow, I have never seen ELF. I know people say it's funny, but for whatever reason, it has never appealed to me. My favorite movies are A Christmas Story, The George C. Scott version of A Christmas Carol, Scrooged with Bill Murray, It's a Wonderful Life, and that adorable Halloween/Christmas mix: A Nightmare Before Christmas.

    ReplyDelete
  66. Our tradition is to watch It's A Wonderful Life as a family. My husband like White Christmas, but I hate musicals, so he's by himself on that one. :) We also like A Christmas Story.

    ReplyDelete
  67. No, I don’t have a Christmas movie that I could mention. They show the same old same old every year on TV but I never bother.

    But with all that praise you have heaped on Elf I must surely watch it. Just because you say so.

    ReplyDelete
  68. I've watched it a millions times and I'll probably watch it as many times again...(a slight exaggeration, of course)...but the movie I'm referring to is "National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation"...Christmas just doesn't seem like Christmas without a visit to the Griswolds! I look forward to seeing them every year. :)

    "It's a Wonderful Life" is another must.

    ReplyDelete
  69. Rudolf the red nose reindeer is my favorite Christmas movie

    ReplyDelete
  70. There's a lot I love to watch - Elf being amongst them - but I have to say my MUST watch shows are: "Mickey's Christmas Carol".... "A Muppet Family Christmas".... and "Twas The Night Before Christmas" (the one with the mice and clock maker).

    ReplyDelete
  71. I have to watch "White Christmas", Bishop's Wife, and The Christmas Story (Red Rider bb gun with a compass in the stock).

    ReplyDelete
  72. We always watch Holiday Inn at Christmas. My favourite film of all time is Casino Royale with Daniel Craig.

    ReplyDelete
  73. The entire holiday vibe is so magical! Elf is a classic holiday movie

    ReplyDelete
  74. I watch all the Hallmark Christmas movies, but my fave is The CHristmas Story.

    ReplyDelete
  75. I have never watched Elf. I don't care for the actor. But I do like Michael Caine and always watch The Muppets Christmas Carol. :-)

    ReplyDelete
  76. My husband always watches some version of A Christmas Carol. I catch them all:)

    ReplyDelete
  77. We start watching Christmas movies on the 1st. We love The Bishop's wife, a Christmas Story, Miracle on 34 St, Emmit Otters Jug Band Christmas, One Magic Christmas, It's a Wonderful Life. We also watch a couple newish movies The Holiday with Camron Diaz, and Kare Winslett. I'm sure there are others....

    ReplyDelete
  78. Now, that's the way to enjoy the season. My favorite all time is The Christmas Story even though I love the Elf and think it is hilarious. Wishing you a merry season : )

    ReplyDelete
  79. Movies, not really, Keith, but TV programs, indeed! Charlie Brown, Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer and The Grinch who Stole Christmas. :)

    ReplyDelete
  80. Hi, I have not seen Elf, but I am going to check it out! Thanks for the recommendation. I need to watch more movies. The last movie I saw was "Land Ho" which is about two old guys who take an unlikely trip to Iceland and have a great time. Thank you for sharing your blog and for your kind comments on mine. Have a great day. John

    ReplyDelete
  81. I don't have one I watch every year, but "It's a Wonderful Life" would be on the list of my favorite

    ReplyDelete
  82. I have never seen this one. I'll have to! I honestly don't have a favourite but I do love the 'Santa Clause', which is so funny. And I didn't get to 'It's a Wonderful Life' until just a few years ago, and I love that, too. I've no idea what took me so long to watch it.

    ReplyDelete
  83. That's easy, Mixed Nuts with Steve Martin. If you haven't seen it, you must.

    ReplyDelete
  84. What do you think of the fact that I've never seen it? :O

    I have a close friend who is a total grinch at Christmas - hates it.

    ReplyDelete
  85. since i don't celebrate christmas, i don't have the tradition to do so. but during the holiday, my siblings and I would soak on whatever movies that being played on tv. we loved watching Home Alone.

    ReplyDelete
  86. Gotta say, I kinda love Love, Actually.

    ReplyDelete
  87. I used to watch the first two HOME ALONE movies every Christmas followed by the first DIE HARD. What a contrast, right? Christmas is a special time for me, too. I have been hunting for a copy of a Christmas TV special with Jimmy Stewart where he plays a lonely old man who finds himself at the manger of the first Christmas. May your holiday season be bright!

    ReplyDelete
  88. Haha! Keith. You and Christmas. It's awesome. It's so fun following you on instagram. I love all your pics!

    ReplyDelete
  89. I'm not a huge fan of Christmas movies, but Elf is surprisingly good. My family watches Little Women every year on Christmas Eve, but that's the only movie that I watch every Christmas season.

    ReplyDelete
  90. I have never seen Elf - my favourite has to be Scrooge, any version, I watch them all.

    ReplyDelete
  91. Ah, yes, one of my favorites for sure. I watch Elf every year. But, my all time favorite is Christmas Story. "I can't put my arms down!"

    ReplyDelete
  92. Yes, Elf is one of my favourites too...but my all-time favourite is "A Christmas Carol" - the version starring Patrick Stewart.
    December would never be the same without curling up on the sofa with a mulled wine and watching this masterpiece!!

    ReplyDelete
  93. Elf is amazing! I also watch Home Alone... reminds me of my little brother when he was, well, little. We try to watch the Christmas specials as a family in the evenings. Last night we saw Charlie Brown Christmas. I think movies help me get in the Christmas spirit!

    ReplyDelete
  94. I have soooo many that I watch: The Holiday, White Christmas, Miracle on 34th Street, Home Alone, A Connecticut Christmas, The Young Pioneers, The Walton Christmas. There are others that I can't think of, but Elf isn't one of them. :)

    ReplyDelete
  95. Elf is a great movie. I love National Lampoons Christmas Vacation. Hope you have a wonderful Christmas!

    ReplyDelete
  96. I like to watch polar express at this season of christmas :)

    ReplyDelete
  97. Elf is great! I also love Charlie Brown Christmas and Miracle on 34th. They bring back so many fun memories. I LOVE this time of year!

    ReplyDelete
  98. I love elf we have it on when we are decorating the tree.

    ReplyDelete
  99. Oh gosh, I feel as though everyone I know loves the movie Elf. I am afraid to admit that I have never actually seen the movie the entire way through (insert astonished gasp here). I guess I've just never been that into Christmas movies. But if they get you into the holiday spirit, more power to ya!

    ReplyDelete
  100. I don't think I've ever seen Elf. Can you believe it? Of course I don't have much time to sit in front of the TV. When I was a kid, I used to like Rudolph and Heat Miser/Cold Miser. Frosty was pretty good, too.

    ReplyDelete
  101. I have to watch Miracle on 34th street every year, and This Christmas (with Columbus Short, Loretta Devine, etc). The Color Purple isn't a Christmas movie, but my sister and I have watched it together every Christmas for years. It's been our ritual, after stuffing ourselves full of food. We sit with our plates of pumpkin pie and other sweets, some hot cider or coffee and just enjoy the movie.
    Great post! I'm a HUGE fan of Will Ferrell but I have never been motivated to see Elf.

    ReplyDelete
  102. You know, I should watch ELF. I haven't seen it in YEARS. My all-time favorite would probably be White Christmas. No, I take that back.....Christmas Vacation. I've probably seen it at least a thousand times. White Christmas would be second. Could they be any more different? :-)

    ReplyDelete
  103. My son still laughs at A Christmas Story! We love Charlie Brown Christmas! We love Christmas movies, music, lights and everything about the season. :) We even watch the original Home Alone this time of year. :)

    ReplyDelete
  104. Christmas Story, It's a Wonderful Life, and Dr. Seuss's Grinch Who Stole Christmas cartoon are my all-time favorites! :-)

    ReplyDelete
  105. Hope you're having a good evening. Watching any Christmas movies?:)

    ReplyDelete
  106. I love christmas movies. My mother and I also get together and watch It's a Wonderful Life while we set up the Christmas village.

    ReplyDelete
  107. Don't hate me or de-friend me, but ........ I have never seen Elf (hides face in shame). I will look for it this year to see if I can watch it, I promise. :-)

    I love "A Dog Named Christmas." And Larry loves "White Christmas."

    ReplyDelete
  108. Not really... :-) But, I promise to watch Elf this December! :-):-):-)

    ReplyDelete
  109. Ba Humbug. I'm not a fan of Christmas... the message is waaaaaay lost.... too much pressure to be happy and cheerful... family that feels like they're visiting forever.... I want that magic of Christmas I felt when I was a child back.....

    ReplyDelete
  110. Well then . . . that does it . . .
    Have never seen it, but if you say it is "the best" I am watching it.
    I will let you know . . .

    ReplyDelete
  111. Elf, Elf and more Elf. Candy, candy canes, sugar, syrup...I adore Buddy!
    The Grinch and Rudolph and the misfit toys. To sing along with, of course.
    :) :)

    ReplyDelete
  112. A Christmas Story totally tops Elf :)

    ReplyDelete
  113. I have three! I love A Christmas Story, Charlie Brown Christmas and Better Off Dead!

    This year, the family added Ziggy's Gift to our repertoire and I totally recommend it to you!

    ReplyDelete
  114. We've watched Home Alone, Polar Express, and A Christmas Story. Tonight we're seeing the play A Christmas Story. I'm so excited!

    ReplyDelete
  115. We went up to the Guthrie Theater in Minneapolis last week to see A Christmas Carol and I love all the versions I ever saw on TV. Ok I obviously like the theme of redemption....;)

    ReplyDelete
  116. While I don't share your love of cold and snow, I do share your love of Christmas movies, and like you, Elf is #1 on our list. We do watch a Christmas movie every night with the kids after dinner, starting from Thanksgiving leading all the way up to Christmas Day (A Christmas Story always ends it).

    ReplyDelete
  117. Well, you got me. I don't watch movies often and when I do Elf is not a favorite.

    ReplyDelete
  118. elf! love it :) I generally watch anything not related to the peanuts gang. I have never been a fan.

    ReplyDelete
  119. Cant say I'm with you on the Elf front! We do like Arthur Christmas in this house because of the surprise appearance of Narwhals - which says a great deal about my family!

    Cheers - Stewart M - Melbourne

  120. The Christmas Story, though I do not have to watch it every year. If it happens, it happens. I am not so much into Christmas, as I am into simply the winter season :).

    ReplyDelete
  121. Bad Santa. I know, I know, but, Billy Thornton. He is the business.

    Greetings from London.

    ReplyDelete
  122. I think home alone would have to be it for me. Perhaps because I grew up with it :-)

    ReplyDelete
  123. A Christmas Story has to be the best ever. It's timeless. My daughter loved it as much as I did, and we rarely agree on movies.

    ReplyDelete
  124. I have only seen Elf once- but I really enjoyed it. I definitely have to rewatch it this year. My holiday staples are A Christmas Story and Christmas Vacation. Oh- and The Grinch Who Stole Christmas! :)

  125. My favorite Christmas movie is Gremlins. But in my opinion ALL Christmas movies are good. I even watched Grumpy Cat's Worst Christmas ;-)

    ReplyDelete
  126. Ah my brother and I watch elf way too much during the Christmas season too! It's the perfect Christmas flick. Hope you're well Keith :).

    ReplyDelete
  127. I like Elf as well! I've never owned the movie but had been hunting it for a few years now. I finally bought it on tape and saw it a couple of weeks ago. Next one I want to watch is Miracle on 34th st. can you believe I've never watch it?!h

  135. My favorite movie is One Magic Christmas (1985) with Mary Steenburgen. I love all the other Christmas movies too and I watch them all month long and even into January!

  136. I love Christmas movies! I really like The Holiday and watch it at least once every year. I love that it's about two women who are in pain and aren't feeling joyful, but are able to find the beauty in the holiday. I think it resonates with me so well because I was actually going through a breakup that holiday season and felt kind of numb to all the Christmas joy! (And I actually went to see the movie in theaters with my ex, which was kind of strange.)

  137. Dear Friend, Just stopping by to say HI. Hope you are having a good December so far. This will be a very different kind of Christmas for George and me this year. But—all in all, we are both enjoying being together and sharing our love with each other. What more can we ask for!!!!

    Other than a post yesterday, I won't be blogging much until I start feeling better and get this knee/leg taken care of... I will try to at least read your posts (even if I don't comment)... I will however be posting off and on on Facebook (since it's so simple) if you want to check there when possible.

    My all-time favorite Christmas movie is "It's a Wonderful Life"..
    Hugs,
    Bets

  138. I've watched all the classics several times and just don't care for them anymore. So I really don't have a christmas movie I like anymore.

  141. If there's one thing about Christmas I love it's the movies. Elf is great but A Christmas Story is probably my all time favourite. Also love The Grinch who stole Christmas, Polar Express and I see someone else mentioned One Magic Christmas. god bless Mary Steenburgen for being such an awesome actress and in two of my favourite xmas movies!
