Favorite Christmas Movies - #galpalholiday

If you know me, you'll know that there's no hiding the fact that I have an obsession with Christmas movies. I could honestly watch them all year round, but I save them for December because they're much more magical that way. I love discovering new Christmas movies to enjoy, but there's nothing better than watching my favorites. Since we still have tonight and tomorrow before it's actually Christmas, you can bet that on both nights I'll be snuggled up in a blanket by the fireplace, hot cocoa in hand, binge-watching any of these I haven't seen this year (if not all of them!)


Favorite Christmas Movies | Live The Prep Life


Elf

There are some Christmas movies that set the bar pretty high, but I'd have to say that this one is my favorite Christmas movie of all time! I've seen this movie so many times that I can recite the majority of the quotes, but I never get tired of it. (P.S. Think you're an Elf expert? Take this quiz and comment below what your score was.)

Polar Express
This one brings back memories for sure. This was the first movie I saw in a theater, when I was two. All I remember was getting scared and wanting to leave about fifteen minutes in, but my mom says I liked it, so I obviously I had good taste in movies even back then. Flash forward to the first grade, when we had a field trip where we came to school in our pajamas, then took a ride on the "Polar Express." (Our local train.) We came back to school and watched the movie, and it was such a fun day. No homework, no finals, no stress. If only school was like this now!

Miracle on 34th Street
This one's such a classic. I've only seen it one or two times because my sisters don't have very good taste and refuse to watch black and white movies, but whatever. I like it, and I'll never get tired of watching it. It has such a good message and is so heart-warming.

National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation
This one's tied with Elf for the funniest on this list and is also my favorite out of all the Vacation movies. I love seeing the shenanigans that Clark Griswold and his family get into, although I get really upset whenever I see the Christmas tree burning down or the cat being electrocuted. But it all has a happy ending, so it's okay, right?!

Home Alone
The other day, I was in Target, and I got really sad when I saw a DVD that was titled Home Alone: 25th Anniversary Edition. How is this movie already 25 years old?! It's one of my all time favorites. The first time I saw this movie was actually in the summertime, but it's so much better as a Christmas movie. As much as I love this movie, I'm so glad I'm not Kevin and I'm so thankful for my family after seeing this.

How The Grinch Stole Christmas
I know many people like the cartoon, but I'm actually not a huge fan of it. I prefer the actual movie, because it has more details and expands more on the story. If you haven't seen this, but you've seen the cartoon, I highly recommend this.

What are your favorite Christmas movies?
