Time For Christmas Movies!

This is the image I sent out in our family group text. 
And it was well-received!

We love Christmas movies. From Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer and Frosty the Snowman to Elf and Christmas with the Kranks...From Santa Claus is Coming to Town and Jack Frost to Home Alone and Deck the Halls, we watch them all! When my kids were small, we cuddled on the couch after dinner and baths, snug and cozy in new Christmas jammies. My children are older now, but we still love to gather after dinner and watch our favorite Christmas movies together.

This year, I thought it would be fun to have each family member or each couple, if desired, choose a favorite movie and host a movie night, complete with snacks. Everyone is excited and we will kick it off Wednesday night with Flynn's choice, Home Alone! I can't give away her snack idea yet. She wants it to be a surprise!

How about you, my friends?
What are your favorite Christmas movies?
I would love to hear!

Have a cozy day!


  1. Flynn's Christmas movie choice is great. Home Alone is a classic, and I've seen it at least a dozen times haha. The quotes he says in the movie has me and my kids laughing all the way. This is a fun idea to have the family host a movie night with all the goodies, Billie Jo. Christmas movies are a wonderful part of the season.

    ~Sheri favorite movie is White Christmas. : )

  2. What a great idea! Such fun! I love this.

  3. We were just talking about how we needed to make our Christmas movie schedule! Now I am even more motivated to do so! I can't wait to hear what Flynn's snack is. Pizza and milk? Tic Tacs? Mac and Cheese? Giant Ice Cream Sundaes? Lots of themeatic food options from the movie!

  4. Ahhhh...Christmas movies! I love them! Miracle on 34th Street, It's a Wonderful Life and Father of the Bride (which you introduced me to last year) are the most favorite ones, but Christmas Shoes is another one we love. It is sad but good all at the same time. I like the snack idea, too. Thank you for the great idea!

  5. Oh wow, what a fun idea! So novel and a great way to bring friends and family together in an unexpected way.

  6. We do the same with the boys.. we already kicked off the season with the Grinch. Home Alone and the Santa Clause movies are always a favorite.

  7. What a fun idea!! Flynn chose a good one, as a matter of fact I haven't see that for a while but I do love the Santa Clause movies with Tim Allen. Also Miracle on 34th street and the Grinch. Enjoy!!

  8. That is such a fun idea! I love how cozy and loving your family is <3 Wonder what kind of snack Flynn will maken :)

  9. Just reading this post has got me all excited for Christmas-coziness! What a great idea.
    My all-time favourite is Home Alone! We also love Christmas Vacation, The Muppet Christmas Carol, and To Grandmother's House We Go. Charlie Brown Christmas is always a classic too :)

  10. I love Christmas movies! One of my favorites is an old one: "It happened on 5th Avenue."

  11. What a fun idea! I never tire of Elf or The National Lampoons Christmas Vacation.

  12. I Love this Idea, our "babies" are juniors in high school and college but someday I hope to remember and try this tradition. Thank you. : )


Thanks so much for saying hello!
