Anyone who knows me knows that you can’t get me to sit down to watch an hour and a half movie to save my life. Netflix for hours, yes. Of course. But a movie? I just can’t do it and I won’t do it. However, during December that changes. Every year I have a select list of Christmas movies that I have to watch or else I feel like I’m missing a part of my soul.
Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer (1964): This is the movie I’ve been watching the longest. Every single year my family and I sit down to watch it.
Frozen (2013): It hasn’t been out that long, but it’s something that needs to be watched annually. Maybe even twice. Or three times. It never gets old.
The Polar Express (2004): Definitely my all-time favorite Christmas movie. My brother hates this movie because it’s a little creepy at times but every year I watch it. Typically during the week leading up to Christmas. I cry every time, without fail.
Now, those are my top 3. This year I also have 2 others to add to my must-watch list. I’m realizing that every single movie I’m listing is a children’s movie. What can ya do.
Arthur Christmas (2011): Not the aardvark! I’ve only seen this one once but I really liked it and want to watch it again.
Elf (2003): Everyone’s seen Elf. Everyone loves Elf. I’ve only seen it once and that’s not enough.

Check this out for my family’s Christmas viewing schedule (apparently)….
Hmmmm. Not sure on Rudolph for me. It’s kind of like Charlie Brown to me now. Classic? Yes. A little tired of it? Yes. How about ‘Santa Claus is Coming to Town’ instead? “I’m the Heat Miser”, “Put One Foot In Front of the Other”, and dozens of other classics.
You still have to watch it with me 🙂
I got a chance to meet the actor who plays Hans when he was in Cinderella on Broadway. He seemed like a really nice guy.
No way, that’s so cool! I’m glad that he was nice because his character in Frozen definitely doesn’t do him any justice 🙂
