Movie Monday - Holiday Classics

We love spending holidays snuggled up on the couch watching classic holiday movies. The best part, check them out - for free - from your local library! Here are a few of our favorites:

A Christmas Story - Follow Ralphie on his quest to acquire a Red Rider BB gun for Christmas. Beware of Scut Farkus and his yellow eyes!


Elf - Ok, this isn't technically a classic but I am adding it to my must watch list. A human child raised by elves at the North Pole, learns of his human family and goes to live with them in New York City. My favorite scene is when he makes "breakfast" out of candy and spaghetti and then eats it.  Ugh!!

National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation - Clark is determined to have an old fashioned Christmas. The disasters begin when his crude cousin from Kansas arrives unannounced.


The Muppet Christmas Carol - It's the Muppets. Need I say more?


How the Grinch Stole Christmas - The classic cartoon version of this movie is the best. The grumpy, grouchy, Yule-hating Grinch plots to ruin the Whos of Whoville's Christmas. Can he steal their holiday spirit by stealing their holiday treats? Perhaps Christmas means a little bit more than just presents and candy.

Tim Burton’s the Nightmare Before Christmas - Jack Skellington, the Pumpkin King of Halloweentown, gets bored and kidnaps Santa after he learns of the wonder of Christmas.


What is your favorite holiday movie?
