Happy Friday and welcome to Day 2 on my 12 days of Blogmas! I gave you a slight sneak peek yesterday but today I want to talk about my favorite Christmas movies! I love going to my parents or getting together with friends and binge-watching these holiday movies while sipping a hot cocoa. That being said let’s just get right into it, here are my favorite Christmas Movies!
A Year Without a Santa Claus (1974)
The first one the one I mentioned yesterday and that is A Year Without A Santa Claus. This classic is about the journey Mrs. Clause and some unlikely heroes set out on when Santa considers skipping Christmas one year. This story is great because you see some very fun characters as well as being reminded of what the Christmas spirit is all about.
Jack Frost (1979)
The next is Jack Frost, and not the Jack Frost you would originally think of (aka the snowman version of Jack Frost). This Jack Frost is the story of how Jack Frost became human when he fell in love with a human through the eyes of one familiar groundhog. I love this movie so much because you can see Jack as more relatable and the story all together is just adorable.
The Nightmare Before Christmas (1993)
Now before you go and say this is only a Halloween movie, note that the word Christmas is in the title, so it counts as both (though if I am being honest, I would watch this movie all year round). Also though Jack Skellington is from Halloween Town, the story revolves around Jack discovering Christmas and him attempting to bring Christmas back to Halloween Town so that is another reason why. This movie is great for Halloween and Christmas because of the characters and the great music and that is why The Nightmare Before Christmas has made it to both of my favorite movies lists.
Santa Claus Is Comin’ to Town (1970)
The next movie is the first classic I saw and what made me fall in love with the classics. Santa Claus Is Comin’ to Town is the story of how Santa Claus became well… Santa. I remember watching this for the first time and falling in love with the characters and the catchy music that I always sing along even to this day. Writing this post I am already getting one of the songs stuck in my head and having a smirk on my face because of it.
The Little Drummer Boy (1968)
The next movie is The Little Drummer Boy. We all know the song but the song is brought to life in this movie when an orphan drummer boy who hated humanity finds his life changed when he meets three wise men on his way to Bethlehem. This movie brings always brings a smile to my face because it gives me a little faith in humanity, as well as nostalgic, feels because I used to play drums myself in school.
Frosty the Snowman (1969)
The next movie is Frosty the Snowman. This movie follows a snowman brought to life by a magical hat and the adventures he has with his friends before he melts away. I love this movie because it shows the innocence and the imagination of children playing outside in the snow.
Rudolph The Red-Nosed Reindeer (1964)
…had a very shiny nose. Am I the only one who automatically does that when I hear that name? The last but not least movie on my favorite Christmas Movies list is the story of Rudolph the red-nosed reindeer. I love this movie because you get to see how he was just a misfit to the head of Santa’s sleigh. Watching this movie as a kid I remember getting the feeling of one day earning my spotlight and now as an adult, I see what my path in life is and am slowly working my way towards it.
So that’s all of the movies! I hope you enjoyed this blog post as much as I did putting it together! What are some of your favorite Christmas movies? I know pretty much all of them revolve around the Christmas classics but if you are like me and you are an old soul, you know what it means to watch these movies. Plus it’s a tradition in my family to watch these movies while together during this time of year so I always put these movies with my family Christmas.
Let me know in the comments below your favorite Christmas movies, ongoing family traditions, and any other ideas for Christmas or non-Christmas blog posts, you know I am always open to new ideas! I hope you are having a wonderful start to your weekend, and I will see you tomorrow for another festive blog post!
