  1. IT’S A WONDERFUL LIFE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! *fangirl squeals* I ADORE that movie, and can’t wait to watch it again this year! 😀 I am an unashamed die-hard Jimmy Stewart fan. 😉

    And yes to How the Grinch Stole Christmas too! That’s a classic at our house. Another fav would be Polar Express. Cause, hello, Tom Hanks, and it’s set in my hometown. 😉

  2. It’s a Wonderful Life is my absolute favorite. But I also love The Bishop’s Wife. Personally, I love both Jimmy Stewart and Carry Grant (and who doesn’t love Arsenic and Old Lace?! Lol!). Watching their movies always remind me of rainy days, snuggled up with family. 😉 So in my family, both of those movies are instant classics.
    I’ve never heard of not watching The Bishop’s Wife because of “adultery.” I can see where they are coming from but, as I was telling my brother the other day, I think of Dudley as a Marry Poppins. Haha, I know it sounds funny. Especially typed up. But he comes to bring the family together. He has to show Henry, the Bishop, how much he really does love his wife and how he’s been ignoring her. And Julia really is the sweetest lady!
    And of course, YES! The Peanuts Christmas and How the Grinch Stole Christmas are of course instant classics. I LOVE Christmas and though not a huge movie person, I make an exception for Christmas. I love Christmas movies. But here is a list of a few, in order of favroites:

    It’s a Wonderful Life
    Scrooge (with Albert Finny)
    The Bishop’s Wife
    A Muppet Christmas Carol
    The Nativity Story
    White Christmas
    Elf

    1. I looooove Cary Grant. He’s probably my favorite actor! YES, Arsenic and Old Lace is the best! 😀

      Yes, same! He’s like Mary Poppins only even more awesome if that is even possible. 😉

      All great movies! I love The Muppet Christmas Carol though we don’t own it so I haven’t seen it in a while. 🙂

  3. Agh, yes, A Christmas Story. I had the exact same reaction! When I was younger, all the cursing and such went over my head. And then, watching it older, it’s like… what??

    But, yes, such a hilarious classic. XD

  4. Believe it or not, I’ve seen the first three of the movies on your list! Who can’t like Peanuts? 😉 And we all love It’s a Wonderful Life, too. 🙂 I didn’t really like The Grinch Who Stole Christmas, though. It was kind of boring.

    (Can you believe it? Me, commenting on a post about movies!! :D)

      1. Yup! We’ve actually watched It’s a Wonderful Life at least twice, even though we don’t own the DVD. It’s pretty good. I can’t remember, do you listen to Adventures in Odyssey? If you do, have you heard the Christmas episode that’s based off of It’s a Wonderful Life?

        Well, I feel like I understand the Grinch too much. 😛 (For some reason, the Christmas Spirit has left me today, and I don’t know how to get it back) I think I don’t like the happy happy ending. 😛

        1. No, I’ve never listened to Adventures in Odyssey. Not really an audiodrama person. Sounds cool, though!

          You wanted the Grinch to suffer forever? Understandable … 😛

          1. Ah, okay. We’ve listened to that particular Christmas episode, though, so many times that it’s cliché. 😉

            Yeah, I mean, grinches don’t just change their minds about being grinches. 😀

  5. Aaahhh!!! I am going to do a similar post this Friday!!! And It’s A Wonderful Life is on that list!!! Great minds think alike, I suppose! I love that movie!!!😊😂

  6. Ooh!!!!! I’ve watched all these except the Bishops wife last year! It looks really good though! 😃

    These movies plus White Chrismas Holiday Inn and………….I know there’s more……….whatever.

    Yay for Christmas!!!!!! 😄😄

    1. Yes, that’s one of the best scenes! I think my personal favorite is when they go to get the Christmas tree …

      Yes, I’ve seen it! It’s been a while, though. 🙂

  7. Oh, I barely watch any Christmas movies!! I remember one series of movies I liked to watch about Santa Claus, but I forgot what it was called??? One of the movies involved Santa making a toy copy of himself to run the workshop as he went to tend to his family, but then the toy got corrupted. 😂 ANYWAYS. How the Grinch Stole Christmas is a movie I’ve watched and adored!!! I think I watched the cartoon version like once or twice, and the “human” version way more?? But they’re both great. ❤ And I STILL NEED TO WATCH THE MOVIE ELF. UGH.

    1. Oh, those are called The Santa Clause movies, I think? Maybe? I don’t know. I know in the second one Santa makes a copy of himself while he goes and deals with his son. But, on the other hand, there might be other movies with that plot … #christmascliches 😉

      The human version is AWESOME. It’s so hilarious. YES, everyone is always quoting Elf and apparently there’s tons of candy consumption and I just totally passed over it and don’t remember it? THE GIFS SAY I NEED TO WATCH IT AGAIN.

        1. I love those movies, so I can see why … *nods*

          We really have to do it … just find a copy somewhere and watch it. Everyone’s been talking about it, so yep …
