We all have our favorite Christmas movies – you know the ones that it just isn’t Christmas without? Some of us have our favorite hated Christmas movies (for the bah humbugs among us) which can be fun too.
These are mine:
It’s a Wonderful Life: Jimmy Stewart learns that each man does indeed touch many lives in many ways.
The Bishop’s Wife: David Niven learns that love and family trumps having the biggest, grandest cathedral in the neighborhood.
Love Actually: Hugh Grant finds love as a big surprise.
A Tree Grows in Brooklyn: A tearjerker you will never forget.
White Christmas: Bing Crosby, lots of great show tunes and a sweet act of kindness to a forgotten man.
Serendipity: Does fate really exist? Do people really have soulmates?
The Santa Clause: Can a cynic really become the most beloved character in the world?
The Christmas Carol: Can a man’s heart be turned from stone to gold?
How the Grinch Stole Christmas: The Who’s are irrestible, even to a green, crochety monster.
Miracle on 34th Street: Faith and belief can change your life.
Christmas in Connecticut: A Martha Stewart who can’t cook gets the handsome soldier in the end.
Holiday Inn: Singing and dancing together makes for true love.
The Family Man: Seeing what the road not taken would have made your life.

Those are mine. What’s yours? And why?
