Favorite Things Friday--Christmas Movies

Welcome to Favorite Things Friday.  I like to take Fridays to look around my house and appreciate the things I have.  I seem to spend a lot of time in I-wish-I-had and so Fridays I take a step back and go to I'm-so-glad-I-have.  Today I want to talk about Christmas movies.

There are a lot of Christmas movies.  A LOT.  Here are my two favorites:

A Charlie Brown Christmas--who DOESN'T like this?  Complete with dancing Snoopy, Sally's letter to Santa ("Did you have a nice summer?"), Lucy yelling at Schroeder because she doesn't recognize Jingles Bells except in its simplest form, Linus reciting the Christmas story from Luke, and of course, the little "Charlie Brown" Christmas tree.  Perfection.

Mickey's Christmas Carol--Ok, fine, the part where the Ghost of Christmas Future (Black Pete) throws Scrooge McDuck into his grave still scares me...but still, it's the best.  When I took British Literature my senior year of college I didn't even read A Christmas Carol like I was supposed to, I just remembered everything from Mickey's Christmas Carol.  Go here to see the wikipedia article on it (if you're a nerd like me it's pretty interesting.)

Little Women my only favortie book/movie combination.  I LOVE both!  It's not necessarily a Christmas movie, but the begining is set during Christmas, so I can get away with it.  I love watching this all by myself curled up on the couch.  I still cry at some point in the movie every time I watch it.

The best thing about these movies?  I have them all on VHS.  That means I have to rewind them and then fast forward through the previews at the beginning--I just love that!

What are you favorite Chrsimtas movies?
