The 12 Movies of Christmas

Instead of singing about turtle doves, maids a milking, golden rings, and the other Christmas gifts from the song The 12 Days of Christmas, why not watch twelve movies in preparation for Christmas?

That’s only three movies per week for the next four weeks, and of course if you fall behind, you can schedule one or two movie marathons.

Watching one of these Christmas classics will make decorating or wrapping gifts or baking more enjoyable. My must see list:

12. Scrooged

11. The Santa Clause

10. White Christmas

9. Trading Places

8. Miracle on 34th Street

7. It’s a Wonderful Life

6. Home Alone

5. A Christmas Carol

4. Elf


3. Toy Story

2. A Charlie Brown Christmas

1. National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation

Happy Christmas movie watching!

Christmas Movie Fest

It’s official…time to start watching Christmas movies and specials. According to the Holiday TV guide distributed by WASH-FM, eleven Christmas programs were televised nationally yesterday and anyone interested in a holiday movie fest can spend every day until December 25th immersed in holiday programs.

ABC Family leads the way with holiday programming, but Lifetime, Hallmark, as well as ABC, CBS, and NBC all air numerous holiday specials.

Whether you prefer Frosty, Rudolph, or the Grinch you’ll find ample opportunities to satisfy your Christmas viewing appetite.

4663-national-lampoons-christmas-vacationMy favorite, National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation, appears on the schedule multiple times but I’ll have to search local listings for Elf and Miracle on 34th Street.

Check out the listings so you don’t miss your favorites!
