It is pouring rain here in California and I love it. Coming from the Midwest where bad weather is a mainstay, it brings me back to my childhood and makes me want to stay in bed and watch movies.That is one of my favorite things about the Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Years holidays as well. The world stops functioning in its normal capacity and we are allowed to drink a little extra wine, eat another helping and stay in a our pajamas all day.
Even if you have stressful family situations, at least you are spending time together and what better way to do that than to sit around a fire and watch a great film. So to enjoy the upcoming holiday to its fullest, or in some cases merely survive, make some popcorn, pour yourself a large glass of egg-nog, gather everyone in the family room and watch something together.I have the task this year of trying to pick out which movies to bring with us when we spend Christmas at my in-laws. It inspired me to start collecting some good choices and I figured I would share them with you so you have time to secure them before next week. (YES!! Christmas really is next week)
(FYI-Some are not technically “Christmas movies” but were shot in Winter with the holiday season in mind.)
Luella says…Merry Movies.
