F Is for Favorite Christmas Films

There are so many Christmas films out on the market. However, most of them are pretty drab, in my opinion. We do have a few favorites around here.

Miracle on 34th Street ~ It has to be the original in black and white. They just don't make them like that anymore.

It's a Wonderful Life ~ This used to come on TV on Christmas Eve when I was newly married. I used to watch it while wrapping gifts. Now, we watch it when ever we get the chance during the season.

The Preacher's Wife ~ All right, I am the only one in the family that loves this one. I really do love it and don't feel like Christmas is complete unless I see it.

The Santa Clause 1, 2, and 3 ~ It seems that these three are on cable almost daily right now. I like the first one the best. My husband and kids love them all.

The Muppet Christmas Carol ~ This is a family favorite. Well, most of us love it. My youngest daughter has a fear of the Muppet characters, so this definitely is not her favorite version of The Christmas Carol.

What are your favorite Christmas movies? Do you have ones that you watch year after year? I want to know...

Blessings, Dawn


  1. We're not big on the standard movie list. I had forgotten about half of those movies! Amber has seen the Santa Clause a few times, or maybe it was the third one... We like the Veggie Tales Christmas dvds, but other than those we don't really have Christmas movies we watch. It now seems odd to me. LOL.

  2. Great movies! I have not seen Miracle on 34th Street or It's a Wonderful Life in years and was just thinking about those two the other day. For our family, it's Elf and Christmas Vacation and, of course, The Charlie Brown Christmas! I also like The Polar Express, but, alas, we don't get around to watching it every year.

  3. So many of those movies are ones that I haven't seen in years and that my kids probably haven't ever seen. I see a huge week-long movie marathon in the making.
