It’s Friday and you know what that means….time for the Friday Five! It’s been a hot minute since I have put together a Friday Five and since it’s the Friday before Christmas I thought I would make it a themed Friday Five and talk about my top 5 favorite Christmas movies!! Because who doesn’t love a good Christmas movie? Am I right??
ONE. Home Alone. I think every kid who grew up in the 90’s would agree that this is the greatest Christmas movie off all time. I can’t think of any movie that tops it and I have several favorites. I think every kid could relate to Kevin McAlister at wanting his family to leave him alone and in celebrating being on his own but he takes it to another level when he defends his territory against the robbers. I freaking love this movie!!!
TWO. The Holiday. As someone who is chronically single during the holidays I have come to love this movie on a whole other level. I love this story and wish I could just switch lives with someone for the holidays and just avoid the whole thing. Of course this story has a happy ending and I’m sure my story will too!
THREE. A Christmas Story. I remember this movie being a favorite of my Mom’s and now I love it just as much as she does. There are so many classic scenes and one liners that I’m sure it will live on in Christmas movie history for a long time to come.
FOUR. Gremlins. Another 80’s throwback I freaking love this movie! It’s kind of scary but I grew up loving the Gremlins and I still love them today. I think it’s time for a remake or a Netflix revival…LOL!!
FIVE. Miracle on 34th Street. The 90’s version, not the original. Please don’t hate me for loving the remake better but I think it just is! It’s a John Hughes remake and that man made some great movies in his day…Pretty in Pink, 16 Candles, The Breakfast Club, Ferris Bueller’s Day Off…etc.
What is your favorite Christmas movie??
