Now that I am home and comfortable in my new place, binge watching movies has quickly become one of my FAV things to do when I’m not working. There is nothing like coming home, changing out of my clothes into stretchy pants, one of my dad’s big sweatshirts, fuzzy socks, getting a fire going and firing up Netflix.
I don’t know about you guys, but I am feeling SUPER festive this year, and am PUMPED for Christmas!! I decided I wanted to get a running list of movies I wanted to watch this holiday season, but I totes need you help!
Here’s the list I have so far, but if you see something I missed….let me know cause your girl is ready for some serious tv time!
White Christmas (1954) Bing Crosby, Danny Kaye, Vera-Ellen, Rosemary Clooney
A Charlie Brown Christmas (1964) Peter Robbins, Tracy Stratford, Christopher Shea, Sally Dryer
Die Hard (1988) Bruce Willis, Alan Rickman, Reginald Vel Johnson, Bonnie Bedelia
How the Grinch Stole Christmas (1967) Boris Karloff, June Foray, Thurl Ravenscroft, Eugene Poddany
Its a Wonderful Life (1946) James Stewart, Donna Reed, Lionel Barrymore, Thomas Mitchell
The Polar Express (2004) Tom Hanks
The Sound of Music (1965) Julie Andrews, Christopher Plummer
(How the heck did The Sound of Music become a Christmas movie you ask…..With the economic success of this musical movie, TV took a keen interest and in 1976, ABC bought the rights to air the movie as a one-time broadcast for an impressive $15 million dollars. The ratings went wild and in 1979, NBC bought the rights to air the movie for the next 20 years. So, why during Christmas? Well, it could be because the movie has actually been broadcast during both Easter and Christmas and has performed well with ratings during both seasons, however, it is during Christmas time that viewers are actively seeking family-centered movies to enjoy. We could chalk this up to the spirit of the season.)
Ok so that is my list so far…please add to it and let me know what other movies I need to add to my cue for the holiday season!!!
