Favorite Holiday Flicks
1. Rudolph. Also, Santa Clause is Coming to Town.
When I was little my mom would make hot cocoa and we would all sit down in the living room at 7 p.m. on a Wednesday night and magic would happen. Rudolph and Hermie or the Klaus family would bring their stop-motion amazingness to life. We watched it every year until my brother and I were too cool. And then my younger siblings got to the right age and we started watching again because…it’s magic. Watching those same movies now with my daughter is like having a glimpse into the past and future at the very same time because I can see myself in her and I can see her future children…and all of us are caught up in the magic.
2. The Holiday.
This is a newer-ish holiday movie and the holiday parts are
3. National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation.
I love that Chevy Chase can’t get his lights to work and I love that family you love-but-don’t-love comes to visit and I really, really, really love it when they’re trying to catch the squirrel that’s terrorizing the tree. And I've got a clip for you right here:
It’s just a fun glimpse at some of the absurdities of the season…all wrapped up in a sweet family story!
