It's the most wonderful tiiiiiiiime of the yeaaaar.
Yes, we have had Christmas tunes on non-step since Thanksgiving night. I regret nothing.
I have also been slowly but surely introducing CJ to my favorite Christmas movies. So in no particular order, here are my top ten favorite Christmas movies!
|This is also how CJ thinks.|
Nightmare Before Christmas - We actually have a Nightmare Before Christmas tree because we love it so much. Our wedding cake topper was Jack and Sally. The blanket covering our couch is Jack and Sally. We looooove Nightmare Before Christmas. CJ hasn't seen it yet, I think it is a bit scary for him yet. Oogie Boogie scared me when I was a kid. I'm not yet ready to scar him completely, but it is still one of my favorites.
Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer - "I'm cute, I'm cute... she thinks I'm cute!" Love that scene. This is just one of the all time classic Christmas movies. CJ likes this one, but it isn't his favorite. Oh, and if you haven't heard DMX sing Rudolph yet, you haven't lived. Watch it, watch it now. "Come on! What!"
Frosty the Snowman - Another one of the great classic Christmas movies. My hubby takes offense to the lyrics "There must have been some magic...", he says no, it should be "There likely was some magic..." CJ likes Frosty, but he loves Frosty Returns. Don't know why.
|My brother-in-law can actually|
do this face. It's amazing really.
It's a Wonderful Life - "Every time a bell rings, an angel gets its wings." Now tell me you don't think that every time you hear a bell ring. I know I do. This movie brings me back to the good old days, when towns were small and everyone knew everyone and banded together and everyone lived happily ever after and you could pull down the moon for your beloved if you wanted to. "I'll take it."
|That's Jesus with Ben Hur.|
Told you so.
Muppet Christmas Carol - This is another one on heavy rotation in our house. We love everything Muppets, and Michael Caine is amazing as Scrooge.
The Little Drummer Boy - I used to love watching this on Thanksgiving. The Little Drummer Boy gives the only thing that he can to the baby Jesus. Ba dum a dum dum. CJ watched this today and said "Baby esas". Yep. :)
And as a bonus, Home Alone - While I will never understand how someone can leave their child home alone on Christmas (or any other time for that matter), it does provide an awesome premise to the movie. I also love the second movie when he gives the old lady a turtledove. Oh Macauly.
