Happy Friday to YOU! The first week of December has come and gone and now we are supposed to get “wintery weather” this weekend. In Arkansas all that means is more ice than snow with probably a little sleet thrown in for fun and I’m ready for it! I can’t wait to spend my weekend curled up on the couch watching Christmas movies and NOT getting out in the awful weather. HA! That brings me to this week’s Friday Five.
If you are new around here you should know that I reserve Fridays for talking about the “Friday Five”. Most weeks it’s just a random list of five things and sometimes there is a theme. Ok fine. 95% of the time my list is random and rarely is there a theme but today I’m doing a theme! Today I’m talking about my five favorite Christmas movies!!
I’ve been thinking about this for a while now and even because there are so many Christmas movies out there but I think I finally have it narrowed down to five. So here we go with this week’s Friday Five, Christmas Movie edition!
ONE. National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation. I have always loved this movie but this year I have developed a greater appreciation for it….HA! Maybe it’s all the shirts I see on Etsy with movie quotes that I think I need for Christmas? HA!! Either way, it’s a classic and one I hope that all of you have seen.
Where do you think you’re going? Nobody’s leaving. Nobody’s walking out on this fun, old-fashioned family Christmas. No, no. We’re all in this together. This is a full-blown, four-alarm holiday emergency here. We’re gonna press on, and we’re gonna have the hap, hap, happiest Christmas since Bing Crosby tap-danced with Danny fucking Kaye. And when Santa squeezes his fat white ass down that chimney tonight, he’s gonna find the jolliest bunch of assholes this side of the nuthouse.Clark W Griswold Jr.
TWO. Home Alone. To me, Home Alone is another Christmas classic. I was born in the 80’s and was a child of the 90’s which was one of the best times to be alive when it comes to TV shows and movies. Home Alone is one of the funniest, realest Christmas movies out there and is filled with classic one liners people still use today. I LOVE this movie!!
THREE. The Holiday. Ahhhh…The Holiday. I love this movie for so many reasons. It’s about single women who are standing up for themselves and making a change in their lives. I love how different these women are from each other and yet how alike they are. I would also KILL for Cameron Diaz’s blinds/curtains in her room. Think I could get those for my apartment?? HA!
FOUR. A Christmas Prince. Yes, I am including last year’s Netflix smash hit, A Christmas Prince to my top 5 Christmas movies list. It’s super cheesy and I don’t care. I love it! It’s got that Hallmark Christmas movie vibe but it’s on Netflix and there is an even cheesier sequel, A Christmas Prince: The Royal Wedding. Yes, I have watched it and yes, I love it too!!
FIVE. The Nutcracker Prince. Ever since I was a little girl I have been Nutcracker obsessed. I recently saw Disney’s new Nutcracker and the Four Realms and it was really good but nothing will ever measure up to this cheesy 90’s nutcracker cartoon. I always watch it when it comes on TV!
And that, my friends, concludes this week’s Friday Five – Christmas movie edition.
What is your favorite Christmas movie??
