It’s Just Not Christmas Without….

Everyone has their traditions, a collection of little things that make the holiday season perfect.  For me, it’s just not Christmas without a movie marathon. On Christmas day, while we’re opening presents and cooking dinner I’ll have my dvd player working overtime. Here’s are a few of the movies that will be entertaining me this year, in no particular order.

White Christmas – I love Bing Crosby, Danny Kaye, and Rosemary Clooney.  When I was younger I’d watch this movie over and over and sing along, but then I do that with every musical that I like.  I just love the soundtrack to this movie, it makes me happy.

 

Home Alone 1 & 2 – I just love these two movies. I think I’m partial to the second movie, Lost in New York.  The beat down that little Kevin gives the two imbecile villains in this one is a riot.

 

Scrooge – There are many versions of this story but I’m partial to the musical version starring Albert Finney. Yes, I sing along with this one too, folks.  Father Christmas, Father Christmas …

Muppet Christmas Carol – Who doesn’t love a movie full of muppets, music, and comedy? “Light the lamp, not the rat.” – Rizzo the Rat

 

Scrooged – Bill Murray, Bobcat Golthwaite, and the terrifically funny Carol Kane. It’s such a fun, modern day version of the story.

Last, but certainly not least

Mickey’s Christmas Carol (Anyone sensing a pattern? LOL!) – I just love the A Christmas Carol story in all of it’s variations. Because I’m a rabid Disney fan, this had to be on my list of to watch movies as well. Scrooge McDuck is the perfect Ebeneezer Scrooge. Plus this is always played in conjunction with one of my favorite Goofy cartoon where he’s learning to ski.
