Although December is officially here, it doesn’t feel like christmas until I watch these movies on TV. Yes, it must be on TV. When it’s on a DVD, it doesn’t feel the same. I know that sounds weird, but watching it on DVD seems like cheating to me. Here are my top 10 Christmas movies that makes Christmas official.
A Christmas Carol has to be the most remade Christmas story. I’ve seen my fair share and hands down Bill Murray’s Scrooged is the best one. To me, it’s original, well, as much as it can be. It’s really hard to pick one good scene in this movie, because it’s all good. So, here is a YouTube video on the top 10 best scenes of Scrooged, which I agree with.
3. Christmas Story
I have to watch this movie on Christmas eve. I even watch it 24 hours on TBS. I know that sounds crazy, but I just love this movie that much. I never watch it any other time. We all had a little Ralphie inside of us. I can’t count how many times I’ve asked my parents for something for christmas only to get rejected. Just like Scrooged, this movie is filled with good scenes, but my favorite part is when Ralphie’s dad won a major award…teehee.
4. The Christmas List
Most people probably don’t know this movie, but it’s always airing during The 28 Days of Christmas on ABC Family channel. It’s about a woman who’s santa wish list starts coming true. It’s cute…it’s a ABC movie. Apparently, it must be so unpopular that there is no YouTube clip.
5. National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation
I often time relate to this movie. Every christmas, when the family gets together, I feel like someone opened pandora’s box. All craziness and chaos. I love the scene when Chase is imagining a swimming pool in his back yard.
6. Home Alone
I grew up watching this movie. I can’t count how many times I wished I was like Macaulay Culkin. The ending is the best scene, but I love the scene with the pizza boy. ”Keep the change you filthy animal.”
7. Die Hard
Come on…a christmas song doesn’t have to be all about love and family. It can be about one cop having to stop a group of terrorists at the Nakatomi building. My favoraite scene is when John McClane (Bruce Willis) is stuck in the air shaft. Classic scene.
8. A Charlie Brown Christmas
9. How the Grinch Stole Christmas
10. The Santa Clause
