Lights, Cocoa, Action: Our Favorite Christmas Movies11/13/2012
With the holidays rapidly approaching, many households are continuing (or starting new) traditions, such as picking out/putting up their Christmas tree, going to see Santa Claus, baking cookies, or a number of other things. We don't put our tree up until Black Friday, and most of our other traditions follow suit. (Writing a letter to Santa, choosing our yearly ornament, getting our portraits taken, etc., etc.) However, there are a few things we have gotten into... like lighting festively-fragranced candles, buying everything pumpkin-scented or flavored in sight, and curling up at night with a hot beverage and watching one of our favorite Christmas movies.
So, in our house, there are the "family favorites," and then there are holiday-themed favorites for J and I that aren't family-friendly (a.k.a. not G-rated). The J and I list is much shorter, and consists of Scrooged with Bill Murray, and National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation with Chevy Chase. Christmas could never be the same without an annual viewing of National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation.
"The most enjoying traditions of the season are best enjoyed in the warm embrace of kith and kin." — Clark Griswold.
