I am joining Shay and Erika for their "Stranded series," and today the topic is Christmas movies. 'Tis the season! So, here are my 3 favorite movies this time of year:

National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation

You serious, Clark? This is one of those movies my family has watched as long as I can remember. It is so funny, and I honestly think it makes me laugh harder each and every year. The other day I heard "Here Comes Santa Claus," and all I could think of was Cousin Eddie kidnapping Clark's boss. Ha! You just can't listen to that song and not think of that scene!

The Holiday

I can remember the first time I watched this movie: in an airplane on my high school senior trip to Italy & Greece. I loved it then, and I still love it today. The Holiday is a movie that I like to watch year round, but it is even better to watch during...ahem...the holidays. It will give you all the feels, and if you don't get teary-eyed during the indoor tent, 3-musketeers scene, you don't have a heart.

The Nativity Story

I saw this in theaters when it came out a number of years ago and really enjoyed it. This movie will definitely get you in the right frame of mind before Christmas. I couldn't leave it off of this list, and if you haven't seen it, it really is a must-see. And PS- It's under $5 on Amazon right now.

Anybody with me on these 3 movies? Or do you have a totally different list? Join the link-up and share your favorites!

Also linking up with Jessi and Jenn for What's Hap"pinning" Wednesday.


  1. The Holiday is one of my absolute all time favorites! My husband knows whenever that, or Serendipity are on, I'm going to watch them, no questions asked haha

    1. Haha! Good thing he knows not to mess with the remote! :)

  2. I love the Holiday - it's just so sweet!! I've never seen the Nativity before - I might need to add it to my list!

  3. I definitely would have added The Holiday if I could pick an extra one! I need to watch a National Lampoon movie, maybe this will be the one :-)

  4. I'm definitely with you on all of those movies!! xo


I'd love to hear from you!
