It’s my favorite time of year! I am so excited to participate in my first ever Blogmas! For those of you who don’t know what it is, blogmas is when bloggers post everyday from December 1 to 25th. Not all of the content I will share with you guys is going to be holiday centered but rather a mix of regular and holiday content. With that being said, I thought I would kick this off with some of my favorite holiday movies!
Now that it is December it officially time to put that holiday spirit into high gear and get into that Christmas mood! Since I haven’t been around for blogging during this time, you probably don’t know that I am major Christmas freak. I love everything about these last couple of months, from makeup looks to getting decorations.
So it is no secret that holiday movies are one of my favorite pastime activities during this time. There is nothing quite as amazing as laying on the couch watching a Christmas movie with some hot chocolate and a blanket. With that being said, my first Blogmas post will be a list of some of my favorite movies to get me into the Christmas spirit. I hope you guys find some new or cherished movies on here that will remind you to take some time off and turn that tv on.
Now lets get onto the list!
Because let’s be real here, not putting this movie would be a crime. And if we are being completely honest, I am down to watch this anytime of the year. Although this movie can get a bit much if you watch it too much, it is a staple of the holiday season. Just remember, “The best way to spread Christmas cheer is singing loud for all to hear”.
2. The Polar Express
So this movie is on here because it is hands down my favorite Christmas movie of all time! And do not get me started on the famous hot chocolate scene. That sequence I think counts for half of my love for hot chocolate. And its voiced by Tom Hanks, he does no wrong. But in general, I think this movie is perfect for getting into the holiday spirit and all of the love of the season.
I don’t like admitting that I have grown to like this movie so much! When I was younger I hated when my sister would put this on (because it wasn’t The Polar Express) but now that I understand the concept, its such a beautiful movie! Not only is it funny but its such a classic. Definitely this is a must watch at least once during the season.
4. The Nightmare Before Christmas
This one is for all of my Halloween folk! The beauty about this movie is that if you love Halloween you can score a 2-for-1 with this movie. It counts as a Halloween and a Christmas movie! And again its such a catchy movie with catchy songs, perfect for this holiday season.
5. Mickey’s Once Upon A Christmas
I’m not going to lie to you guys, these movies are the cutest things ever. Whenever I would watch this or any of the Mickey Mouse Holiday movies, I knew that Christmas was coming. It is such a cute family movie to watch and really just brings you back to your childhood.
6,7 & 8. Santa Clause, Santa Clause 2, and Santa Clause 3
I could watch this serious all day if I could. Although I will be honest, the third one is not my favorite Christmas movie. However if you watch the first two than you might as well watch the third one. These movies are just classics when it comes to holiday movies and really they are played almost 24/7 once December starts so you should have no problem finding an air time. It’s such a great family movie for all ages (like most Christmas movies are) that are just the right amount of sarcasm and cuteness.
So these are my top eight films for you guys! I’m excited to see what you all think about them and to know which ones are your favorites! Make sure to let me know if there are any not on the list, I need movies for the entire month. Be sure to check this space tomorrow for Day 2 of Blogmas. You can also sign up to my newsletter to get it sent straight to your mailbox right after posting and never miss out on a post this month.
See you tomorrow!
