Trivial Christmas


Here's what I love: cozying up on a December night to watch a classic get-you-in-the-mood-for-Christmas-cheer movie. On my list:
Elf
Christmas Vacation
Home Alone
A Christmas Story
Little Women
A Charlie Brown Christmas
It's a Wonderful Life
What's on yours?

Oh Little Women for sure, and I really love the Grinch with Jim Carry in it. and I really love Love Actually which is rated R, but I fast forward the naked parts which are totally stupid and have nothing to do with anything. Ah if only clean flicks was still around.

Oh also, Trav just bought all of the Lethal Weapon movies and assures me that they are also Christmas movies as all of the killing and blowing things up is set around Christmas time.

HA. could danielle be any funnier?
i think you pretty much covered all my Christmas faves. I love the old Dr. Seuss grinch -- it's a must watch for us at Christmas time. When I was little we used to watch Miracle on 34th Street -- haven't watched it for a long time, but kind of want to.
