Classic Christmas Movies

The odd weather has made my allergies run amuck and I have been under the weather this week. The only good part about being sick is laying in bed and watching beloved movies and shows. While I spent most of my day yesterday trying to drink liquids with a sore throat, Gilmore Girls helped ease the discomfort. If I had been home with my mom, we most likely would have had a marathon of holiday movies that we must watch every year. Above, It's A Wonderful Life, is not surprisingly something we watch usually on Christmas Eve or Christmas night. It was a tradition with my dad growing up and still remains a movie that cannot be missed.
Here are some of my favorites:

Christmas in Connecticut is not as well known, but it's the favorite of my mom and me. Barbara Stanwick's wardrobe is so beautiful, especially her intricate monogram on the suit pictured on the cover.

The Bells of St. Mary's is a lovely movie with Bing and Ingrid.

The classic White Christmas. The set design is so artful.

Charming Holiday Inn.

What's Christmas without Rudolph? My favorite claymation movie, hands down.

I'm glad the Muppets have made a comeback. It was about time. This is the greatest Muppet movie because it brings together all the Muppets, Sesame Street and Fraggles for a family Christmas.

Another Jim Henson movie, without the familiar Muppet faces but with their voices. Emmett Otter's Jugband Christmas is adorable.

Yet another Jim Henson tale. You'll hear the familiar voices again with different characters. Every year still I realize the voice of another character in connection to a Muppet.

In addition to watching all these movies, we love Christmas trivia. We have had the same 'Tis the Season game for as long as I can remember and I'm not sure we have gone through the whole deck of cards. You can get it on Amazon.
