I love Christmas gifts. And Christmas cookies. And Christmas music. And I really love Christmas movies.
Each year, I have a couple movies that I absolutely MUST watch in order for it to truly feel like the holidays for me. Then, of course… there are a bunch of bonus movies too that I can watch if I feel like it.
But the BIG TWO are totally not negotiable.
The One for the Kids: Elf
Elf has only been out since 2003, but it simply is NOT the holiday season until I watch Will Farrell run around in his green tights. I can’t even think of Christmas without breaking out into random quotes like “Smiling is my Favorite” and “Santa! I KNOW HIM!” This year was the first year that Jack actually watched Elf with me and I plan to force-feed it to him for as many years at it takes for it to become his favorite Christmas movie. Just kidding. As long as he lets me watch it, it’s all A-Okay.
The One for the Grown Ups: Love, Actually
Apparently 2003 was a golden year for Christmas movies, because Love Actually is my favorite. MY TOTAL FAVORITE. Every year I have a showing – either with a bunch of girlfriends, or by myself – and THEN it is Christmas. Each time I watch it, I feel like I can relate to a different couple… but I always see a piece of myself in Natalie.
