Everyone has a list of what really are the best holiday movies going and those list’s can really vary. For me personally the movies below are the top couple that I have to see every few years. And some fall more into the every year category!
1) Elf – where such classics as “The best way to spread Christmas Cheer, is singing loud for all to hear. ” and “We elves try to stick to the four main food groups: candy,candy canes, candy corns and syrup” came from. You can’t watch this one without smiling!
2) Home Alone ( 1,2,or 3) – A John Hughes Christmas film , yes please! Plus the grouping featured a kid taking charge so as a kid watching this film became an easy favourite.
3) Christmas Vacation – a family whose vacations go from bad to worse in the best way possible trying to have the best holiday ever has to be a good time!
4)Miracle of 34th Street- I think by this time it’s easy to see I enjoy John Hughes work! Personally I’ve only seen the updated film but either or will fill the space and deliver the same enjoyment.
5) A Christmas Story – This classic has Canadian roots with seven of the nine weeks of shooting taking place in the Toronto area! Supposedly this move was done for tax reasons.
