I love December. I'm sure that's it's my favorite time of year because it was my parents' favorite time of year too. My mom ALWAYS goes overboard with decorations, but I wouldn't want it any other way. We also had a tradition of watching Christmas movies starting on Thanksgiving night.
My hands-down favorite Christmas movies is Emmet Otter's Jug Band Christmas. This is the first movie that we watch for the Christmas season. Last year I found an old copy of a book of Emmet Otter's Jug Band Christmas on eBay and bought it for my mom. We didn't even know that there was a book.
Jared likes to watch The Polar Express. As you know, my little boy is in-love with trains so I'm sure this makes sense.
Dan made the comment one year that it didn't feel like Christmas until we watched It's a Wonderful Life. Believe it or not, he never saw that movie until he met me. How can a person go for 29 years without seeing that movie? The poor man.
I know that my dad is a big fan of White Christmas. For as much as he enjoys it, I've never seen anything but the end of the movie. Maybe this is the year.
A few other Christmas movies that I like to catch each year are:
Garfield's Christmas Special
There's one on cable with Tony Danza...let me google that quickly...Stealing Christmas
Charlie Brown Christmas
The Grinch (animated and the one with Jim Carrey)
What are your favorite Christmas movies?
