Ten Things: Holiday Movies

Just like Holiday books, I'm a sucker for Holiday movies and these I tend to watch at least once a year. Sometimes I watch them during the summer too! Most of them aren't your typical holiday movies.

White Christmas: A family holiday tradition movie. I Love all the dancing and the songs. I love the connection between the sisters and the youngest one's meddling.

You've Got Mail: I know this isn't technically a holiday movie, but it feels like it is to me. It's one of my favorite RoComs - funny, sweet, and charming.

Love Actually - adore this movie! I can't even pick a favorite character or scene because they're all awesome. Although I lent this out to someone and it's been lost. Hoping that Santa brings me another copy for Christmas. Even my husband loves this one!

Santa Claus: I really enjoyed this movie and try to catch it when it comes on each year. It's funny and full of magic.

Die Hard: One of my favorite action movies - which takes place at an office Christmas party. Great action and funny lines.

Little Women: One of my favorite childhood movies - still haven't gotten over the fact that Louisa May Alcott (Jo March) never married in real life. I love the beginning scenes dealing with Christmas and the snow.

When Harry Met Sally: I love this movie - it's just hilarious. And perfect for this time of year as it ends on New Year's Eve.

Bourne Trilogy: Love watching these movies - mostly in a row. There's nothing in these movies to connect with Christmas, but I still watch them.

Chronicles of Narnia: Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe: I really love this movie - especially Lucy and Mr. Tumnus's scene together.

Bridget Jones: For the reindeer jumper alone!

What are some of your favorite holiday movies or movie traditions?

Totally agree about When Harry Met Sally that's always been one of my favourite Christmas films.

It's funny...I totally agree with you about "You've Got Mail" feeling like a holiday movie, even though it's not. Same with the one she did with Hugh Jackman (time travel) - I can't think of the name right now...
