Christmas Movie Confessions
'Tis the Season, where you can see all of the holiday classics on TV, and it doesn't matter which channel you choose. Don't have cable or an antenna for the local stations like me? Well, Netflix, HULU, and Amazon Prime Video all have the holiday movie hook-up for you. You can find just about any Christmas movie ever made streaming online somewhere, if you don't already own them on DVD, Bluray, or even VHS.
I like Christmas movies, and am especially fond of the Rankin-Bass stop-motion Christmas movies, takes me right back to my childhood and getting excited to see "Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer" and "Jack Frost." My daughter does not share my excitement over these shows. She would rather watch "Elf" or "How The Grinch Stole Christmas," but not the animated one, the one that stars Jim Carrey.
So, when I had guests over on Saturday, we were going to watch a Christmas movie, or two. We discussed several movies and agreed on "National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation." Who doesn't love some Clark Griswold? Here's where the confession comes in, I had to admit that I have NEVER seen "It's a Wonderful Life," I know the plot, just never sat down and watched it. I do know what happens when a bell rings.
I have also never seen "Miracle on 34th Street," at least not the whole movie. That one I have seen parts of. I am so embarrassed, I know I am going to have to watch those movies now. Thankfully, they are available on one of my streaming apps, so I don't need to borrow or buy them. I have seen "White Christmas" so I believe I can redeem myself a little.
What holiday classics have you NOT seen that everyone has?
