Buddy the elf, what's your favorite color? My top twelve Christmas movies

Don we now our gay apparel, falalalalalala. Tis the season to be jolly, falalaalalalalaaaaaaaa.

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.
Elf - We watch Elf probably 5 times a week at the least. This has been going on all year, not just now that it is Christmas. CJ is obsessed. He could care less about Santa Clause. He thinks that Santa is just Elf's pal. Elf is the big kahuna. Any time he sees and Elf he loses his mind. ELF!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! He freaks, it is hysterical.
The Santa Clause - I think Tim Allen is hysterical, and he was especially funny in this. There are some awesome scenes in here. I want the elves' hot chocolate recipe, and I want it now. Also, is it wrong to be physically attracted to an elf? Cuz Bernard is sexy. True story.

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.
The Grinch - I love the Grinch!! He's my favorite! I used to be the Grinch. I hated Christmas for a really long time. (Boohoo, horrible childhood, blah blah blah.) Now that I have CJ I make sure to love the whole Christmas season. But I still love the Grinch. I love him before his heart grows and I love him even more when he, he himself, carves the roast beast! I also think that Cindy Lou Who is the cutest thing ever. Note - I am talking about the original, but I also love the Jim Carrey version.

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.
Ben Hur - Yes, Ben Hur is a Christmas movie! I always have to explain this to people. Ben Hur is born around the same time as Jesus, and their lives go on divergent paths until Ben meets Jesus. The wise men are a big part of the book, not so much in the movie. But a great movie that I love to watch around Christmas.

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. :)

Scrooged - So yes, the ghost of Christmas Future is freaking HORRIFYING, but this is an awesome remake of A Christmas Carol. Billy Murray is absolutely perfect.

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.
