It’s the most wonderful time of the year! One of our favorite things to do this holiday season is to stay in and watch a few of the classic Christmas movies. Watching holiday movies is a great way to spend time with your family and reminisce on past holiday memories. Feeling a little grinchy this holiday season? These movies are sure to make your heart grow three sizes, and maybe Christmas, perhaps, will mean a little bit more!
Here are some of our holiday favorites:
Because, well, who doesn’t love Elf? While Elf is a hilarious movie, behind all of the comedy is a great story about keeping the Christmas spirit alive, no matter how old you are. It’s easy to get caught up in the stress of the holiday season, but Buddy the Elf serves as a reminder that sometimes, you just have to let your inner child out. Another great part about Elf are the amazing quotes! In fact, we loved them so much, we put them on our bangles!
- Home Alone
This Christmas classic is one of our favorites! Can we talk about how badly we all wanted to be Kevin McAllister? Although he was left behind by his family, he made the most of his time by jumping on the bed, eating ice cream all day and even catching the neighborhood bandits. He was living the 10 year old dream! This movie is sure to bring back some great memories, either from past holidays or even your own crazy childhood! To make it easy, you can stream Home Alone from YouTube or Amazon Prime this holiday season!
- Christmas Vacation
This is a Christmas movie that anyone with a big, crazy family can relate to! If you have a big family, you understand Clark Griswold’s struggle of planning out the perfect holiday and having things not go quite as planned. This movie is sure to keep the whole family laughing this holiday season! If you love this movie and you’re not quite sure what to get someone in your own big family this holiday season, we have the perfect gift for you!
- Love, Actually
This movie is a perfect one for the adults to watch after putting the kids to bed. Love Actually follows the stories of 8 different couples in the crazy month before Christmas. This movie shows the ups and downs of every relationship, and brings reality into the typical Christmas-time love story. This movie serves as a good reminder that even during the crazy holiday season, love actually is all around you! If you have a Netflix account, you're all set to watch! Love, Actually can also be streamed on Hulu and Amazon Prime.
No matter what holiday classic you choose to watch, we hope it brings some Christmas cheer into your home this season! If you’re still looking for the perfect gift, we would love to help you out! Start your gift search by heading over to sunshinenative.com.
