Thursday Thrifty Throwdown -- My holiday movie night line-up

I've mentioned on more than one occasion in these past few posts that, well, um, I LOVE the holidays (notice the capital letters and bold font to make my point?). Specifically, holiday movies and TV shows. We took Kiddo to see the latest holiday kid flick Rise of the Guardians two weeks ago. She loved it...but me, well, I really loved it. Couldn't stop talking about it. It will definitely go on our annual holiday movie list. 

We've already talked about some of the fabu television specials and such, but this time, it's all about the movies. Plan a night where you start a cozy fire in the fireplace, pop some popcorn and gather the whole gang to take a break, watch a holiday film and snuggle.

Some on my family's Holiday Movie Night line-up:

Elf

The Polar Express

The Santa Clause (all three)

Arthur Christmas

The Nightmare Before Christmas

Miracle on 34th Street

The Muppet Christmas Carol

White Christmas (an oldie but a goodie)

Holiday Inn (another oldie but a goodie)

Die Hard 2 (cool for the older kiddos)

My idea of a perfect holiday movie: a special Harry Potter Christmas...no signs of Voldemort, just fun wizardly take on the holidays!

What holiday movies do you and your crew watch?

Christmas Vacation!  We also enjoy The Santa Clause movies, The House Without A Christmas Tree, The Christmas Carol (with George C Scott), and It's a Wonderful Life (my favorite!) 

My kids aren't crazy about the "modern" Christmas movies like most on the above list.

We havent in tthe past, but we will probably start this year. I like the idea of a Muppet Christmas Carol, hopefully it is on netflix at least!

We haven't really watched many Christmas movies, but my boys do like The Flight Before Christmas.  I did DVR some I thought they would like (can't remember which ones now) so we'll have to watch them at some point & see what they think.
